804 Lessons Learned from Implementing an LMS
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM Friday, October 25
Management and Strategy
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. Then, discover what happens during the implementation process. What stakeholders or departments need to be involved? What does the process look like? What are the common pitfalls, and how can you avoid them?
In this session, you will learn:
- Questions to ask your potential LMS provider
- Features to look for in an LMS
- About the implementation process, including stakeholder involvement and timeline
- What the most common implementation issues are, and how to avoid them
