What Makes an LMS Easy to Use?

Tony Karrer

They are doing a combination of virtual classroom training (via WebEx) and self-paced eLearning. I’ll have more coming on this topic, but today someone asked me how to approach is going through an LMS selection because the general feeling was that the existing LMS was too hard for users to use.

Webinar Software - Adoption Advice

Tony Karrer

WebEx enjoys the largest market share with 42.6% of Guild members that use a SLS indicating that they use WebEx Training Center. Good question about adoption of webinar software / services - this time from someone who went to my workshop in Cincinnati - Revolution in Workplace Learning - who by the way - called it "awesome."

Tony Karrer

They are doing a combination of virtual classroom training (via WebEx) and self-paced eLearning. There has been fantastic comments around Learning Management System Easy of Use.

Profile Photo

Tony Karrer

Add it to your Elluminate and WebEx profiles. I'm actively engaged in all kinds of sites that can be roughly described as social networking. Through this, and because of my My LinkedIn Open Connection Approach where I basically treat LinkedIn like a really big business mixer, I have lots of opportunity to "meet" new people online.

One-way conferencing in a two-way world

Jay Cross

Yesterday I gave a presentation to a couple of dozen people using Adobe Connect Pro. I couldn’t see them. I might as well have been blindfolded.

The requirements will be very specific items that you are looking for: Does your LMS work with WebEx as a virtual classroom tool to?

We talked about the SCORM test suite, SCORM test wrappers, and various test tools such as Trident , Reload player ([link] SCORM Test Track , remote debugging using tools like WebEx, HTTP traffic tracking with tools like Firebug , and some other things. Well worth looking at some of them. Docent, SumTotal, Saba,, etc.). Hours?

Collaborative Learning Using Web 2.0 Tools - A Summary

Tony Karrer

Firewalls and restrictive corporate environments caused us considerable grief: Yahoo Groups were restricted in some corporate environments, Elluminate did not work through several firewalls, we had to switch to WebEx and that really goofed up the start of the course; Yahoo Toolbar (for MyWeb ) couldn't be installed on locked desktops.

Or are they this season's over-hyped fad? In the article he VWs have too much potential for learning professionals to ignore.

Twitter and Webinars

Tony Karrer

So, both the webinar tool (Elluminate, WebEx, Adobe Connect, etc.) I recently complained that even after all these years, tools like Elluminate and WebEx still didn't provide the ability to have people put their pictures and other information on their profiles so you could find out more about the users. Twitter Chat Annoying? Thoughts?


Tony Karrer

Can run PowerPoint in Adobe Connect, WebEx or other virtual meeting software. I'm at the Dan Roam - The Back of the Napkin: Solving Problems and Selling Ideas with Pictures - keynote at DevLearn. You can find something similar here. What problems can we solve with pictures? All of them. We all know how to do this. Pretty cool pictures.

Web Video Conferencing

Clark Quinn

I even would think that someone having to do a download like WebEx does would be annoying enough that users wouldn't want it. Two of my start-up clients have recently discussed adding video conferencing to their web offering. and now they want to explore providing video chat between the parties. Am I missing video services that would work?

Winter Olympic fever has enveloped my beloved city of Vancouver , but I’ve managed to take a break from the action to opine about an issue that clearly needs more than a mere blog post to help modify or even evolve. implications to consider as well.

Examples of eLearning 2.0

Clark Quinn

During my presentation last Thursday that was an introduction to eLearning 2.0 as part of an online event for the eLearningGuild, I mentioned a few common ways that I've seen eLearning 2.0 approaches. In the past, I've only had a few people respond, but this time, there were so many responses I couldn't really read them and present.

Profile Photos

Tony Karrer

Add it to your Elluminate and WebEx profiles. I received a response that I didn't expect on my post Profile Photo. In that post, I suggested that you should always add a profile photo: Don't join that new Ning group without attaching your photo. Because profile photos help me: Believe that you are a real person and begin to connect with you.

Well Played, Blackboard

George Siemens

Adobe Connect has somewhat of an academic presence, but it has seen far more success in corporate settings, similar to WebEx and GoToMeeting. With increased competition and general maturity of the market, Blackboard made what is likely its most important acquisition to date. Here’s why. During this period, online learning was a mess.

New Learning Solutions

Tony Karrer

You would categorize the space from faceless (WebEx) to 3D/complex (Second Life) and your solution is this new category of approachable 3D. For the past 15 years, I've spent a lot of time working on start-ups both inside and outside the world of eLearning. Why am I scratching my head? You won't be able to get above the noise. Pain Point?

Firewalls and Security in Software as a Service

Tony Karrer

Elluminate did not work through several firewalls, so we had to switch to WebEx. One of the interesting outcomes of my recent course - Collaborative Learning Using Web 2.0 Thus, while we are excited about wikis, blogs, discussion groups, etc., The Yahoo Toolbar (for MyWeb ) couldn't be installed on locked desktops. That's its job.

Irving Wladawsky-Berger: "Killer Apps" and Virtual Worlds

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Applications like WebEx prove there is a need and a desire to collaborate. I would suggest that an easy to use version of WebEx, 100% browser based that connects anyone, anywhere at anytime has a lot of merit. It was a very stimulating event, both because of the talks and panels as well as the people that this conference attracts.
