Our LMS, What a Mess!

Our LMS, What a Mess!
September 20, 2012 at 1:30 - 2:30 PM ET
Steve Foreman, President(InfoMedia Designs, Inc.)
Does your Learning Management System (LMS) need a make-over? As the months and years go by, your LMS becomes more and more cluttered, difficult to navigate, and full of dated, irrelevant content. The configuration decisions you made when you first installed the LMS may have come back to haunt you. You may be hearing constant complaints from users, or worse – no complaints at all, and not much activity either.

Typical signs of an L-M-MesS include:
• outdated content
• haphazard organization
• duplicate user accounts
• dead ends
• lack of accountability
• title and tagging inconsistencies
• report anomalies
• lack of distinction between titles
• unused features
• spam

As you look down the list, do you find yourself pointing to each bullet point and saying yes, yes, yes, that's us? How can you escape these nightmares and ensure that your LMS stays fresh and well-organized?

In this session, we will cover the critical tasks that many organizations forget to address when implementing a new LMS, or updating an existing system. Vendors want to sell their product to as many customers as they can. Typically, your vendor will help you get your LMS up and running, and then leave you on your own to operate the system effectively.

If you are considering an LMS, are currently implementing an LMS, or have found yourself stuck with a problematic LMS, this session will reveal how to establish the standards, processes, taxonomies and governance necessary to ensure your LMS operates effectively for years to come. It's time to clean up and optimize your LMS!
