Will that eLearning program work with our LMS?
LMS stands for Learning Management System. An LMS is a software application that allows organisations to manage their online learning. With an LMS, organisations can deliver eLearning content to learners and track and report on their progress.
This eLearning will have to be SCORM compliant for our LMS?
There are probably a lot of L&D professionals that don’t fully understand what SCORM means so don’t feel bad if this one has you stumped. SCORM stands for ‘Sharable Content Object Reference Model’. SCORM is a set of standards and specifications for eLearning that enables eLearning content to be distributed to a variety of different LMSs. Most eLearning development tools publish content in a SCORM compliant format.
Our sales team would love it if we could gamify this eLearning module?
Gamification is the use of game design elements such as problem solving, competition, reward and recognition to motivate and maintain the interest of learners.
Are there any MOOCs we could direct our managers to?
MOOC is an abbreviation for ‘Massive Open Online Course’. These courses are open access, online courses, many of which are offered by elite universities -often for free.
We really should be offering M-learning to the team?
