One of these days, you’ll get to read the rest of the comments that we didn’t have room to publish with last issue’s cover story “Web Services/Web 2.0 — The Next Big Thing.” Until then, here are some short but great observations on the future of e-learning, taken from what participating LMS vendors told us:

>> Don Duquette, senior vice president, learning solutions, General Physics:

“The next big problem that is looming on the horizon is how you keep track of all this content. Without a process in place, it will be impossible to know what content resides in what course.”

>> Jim Riley, CEO and president, Learn.com:

“We believe that the LMS is … no longer an esoteric piece of software for only the largest companies with the largest number of employees to train. I predict within five years that every company will know what an LMS is and implement one to meet their training and talent management objectives.”

>> Massood Zarrabian, CEO and president, Outstart:

“Moving forward, on-demand learning must be about having the right content, at the right time, delivered in the right way when the users need it. It must be about users learning one moment and then contributing knowledge the next.”

>> A.G. Lambert, vice president product marketing, Saba:

“Enterprises today need to create a fully connected, corporate community in which efficient collaboration and knowledge-sharing lead to greater group accomplishments than even the most talented individuals could achieve on their own.”

>> Frank Russell, CEO and president, GeoLearning:

“More and more organizations, whether they are large or small in size, have moved to rapid e-learning where the speed and quantity of information provided to learners is as important as the quality of the content they create.”

>> Steven Shaw, chief learning officer, Eedo Knowledgeware:

“If people have evolved to a point where they will not tolerate waiting to watch a television program at a certain time, there is little argument to say they will be passive about not getting the necessary training or knowledge they need, as the need arises. We are now living in an on-demand world.”
