LMS RFP

Tony Karrer

Continuing on from my earlier posts: LMS Selection Presentation Reformulated LMS Selection Team and Stakeholders LMS Selection Process From several comments and from looking at my list of issues, I realize that writing a good LMS RFP is challenging and it's easy to make lots of mistakes. LMS RFP Resources John Theis wrote a dissertation on the contents of 25 RFPs submitted to an LMS vendor. Probably the best thing to do is simply to search on Google using a few tricks.

Request for Proposal (RFP) Samples

Tony Karrer

Based on my post LMS RFP , I've been asked several times if I knew where you could find samples of Request for Proposals (RFPs) for custom eLearning development, performance support tools, learning content management systems (LCMS), elearning authoring tools , etc. This wasn't something I could directly help the person, but I had the sense that people may be missing some key search tricks that would give them a list of reasonable results.

LMS Selection Process

If you go out and search you will quickly find resources like: [link] [link] The processes described there are similar to the process that I generally have used. Difference between an RFI and an RFP. What requirements to put in an RFP. How to balance making an RFP response useful to you and not too hard for a vendor. How much should you lead a vendor in the RFP requirments.

Amusing Findings in Keywords

Tony Karrer

Quick update (1/5/2008) - I feel much better now - 3 people have searched and found me through the highly relevant search - incredibly cool elearning guy. So the comment that I may be messing with search results and making myself even more lame seems to be turning out correct. While I had dismissed it, I'm now no longer #1 for the search - top ten lamest people - even though I was yesterday before Google spidered this page. People search in order to find information.

eLearning Portal Integration

Tony Karrer

These discussions center on what requirements should go into an LMS RFP and more broadly how the LMS should really be integrated into the organization. But the next level of content access from outside the LMS is search. The idea is that the course content should be integrated into enterprise search so that it can be found and used when the person needs help with something. For example, Skillsoft along with its Books 24x7 provide good hooks for search and deep linking.
