112 Lessons Learned in Implementing an LMS
10:45 AM - 11:45 AM Tuesday, March 26
Choosing your organization’s first learning management system is a daunting task. What features should you be looking for? What questions should you be asking? How much is too much to spend? And what happens after you make the decision? In many ways, implementing the LMS you’ve chosen can be even more daunting than making the initial selection.
This interactive session will explore some of the questions you should be asking and the features you should be looking for in an off-the-shelf LMS solution. Participants and facilitators alike will discuss some of the lessons learned in the selection process. From there you’ll discover what happens next during the implementation process: What stakeholders or departments need to be involved? What does the process look like? Where are the common pitfalls, and how can you avoid them?
In this session, you will learn:
- Questions to ask your potential LMS provider
- About common features to look for in your potential LMS provider
- About the implementation process, including other stakeholder involvement and timeline
- About common implementation issues and how to avoid them
