1. It’s great that I am finally starting to see serious innovation in the learning space; agree that the scope of the LMS must evolve from a ‘learner’ management system (too many companies use simply as a compliance/learning path tool) to true learning enablement. Every LMS vendor’s key competitor? Google.

  2. From a non-technical perspective, people are being too obsessed on the so-called “learning platform”. A lot of names have been thrown at it since the advent of the term e-learning, marketing people took advantage of pushing this so called LMS to the corporate world and now since nearly all company in the world had the needs to keeping up with the Joneses whenever a new way of learning should be done in this new age. Putting the blame solely on the LMS just because it “didn’t deliver”? The effectiveness of LMS highly depends on their content developer to successfully play it’s role in this modern age. If you’re saying that LMS is a “traditional learning technology system”, let me asked you which part of the “technology system” is traditional when even Moodle 3.x runs on PHP7. This article is too biased on the trending of the LMS nowadays. The failure of any learning initiatives can only be pointing back to the role of instructional designer whose job is to keep their contents fresh and up-to-date. A great products doesn’t have to be overly promoted, it speak for itself. Their lack of research is what contributes to the rapid development modules being delivered continuously to the users. Heck, how many ID nowadays actually have at least some basics in UI/UX discipline? If there are things to be disrupted about it’s not about their tools being obsolete, but how they cope with the current technology advancement today. Just my two cents.
