601 LMS, LRS, LXP, and More: Exploring the Learning Platforms Landscape

10:00 AM - 11:00 AM Thursday, August 23

For decades, there was only one dominant learning platform that most training departments used: the learning management system (LMS). However, in recent years the learning platforms landscape has expanded. Not only have LMSs evolved over time, but additional platforms—such as LRSs, LXPs, and more—are also growing in functionality and popularity for learning and performance. This makes an organization’s decision on learning platforms much more complex, as it’s no longer a discussion of which platform, but which suite of platforms will meet an organization’s needs.

This session will explore how the growing array of platforms compete, coexist, and work to serve the diverse needs of today’s workforce. We will examine technology-driven performance ecosystems and how workers leverage multiple systems. We will make sense of current systems, explore what’s coming next, and examine how different platforms complement and compete with one another.
