Size Matters

Posted by Brian Kleeman on Dec 1, 2015 1:55:12 PM

Amongst the millions of Inquisiq users, several create their own lessons using a variety of authoring tools (Articulate, Captivate, etc.).  Most of time, they simply upload these lessons (SCORM packages) into the LMS, and then import them to automatically create a course.  For extremely large SCORM packages (200MB or more), Inquisiq has a “Fetch” feature that allows a server to server transfer.  However, just because you can upload a large SCORM package, doesn’t mean that you should.  Here’s why.

What is an Authoring Tool?

Posted by Brian Kleeman on Oct 30, 2014 10:20:25 AM

An eLearning authoring tool is a software package with which you can develop, create and package eLearning content so it is deliverable to end users.  Many programs can be considered authoring tools, including Flash and PowerPoint.  However, only a specific group of programs include support for eLearning content standards such as SCORM (Shareable Content Object Reference Model).  Some examples of these programs (but not all) include: Articulate Storyline and Studio, Composica, Captivate, Lectora and Camtasia.

SCORM Expertise

Posted by Brian Kleeman on Dec 10, 2012 2:02:12 PM

Unlike some learning management system products that integrate third-party engines and APIs, our Inquisiq LMS has been developed in-house. Our own application gurus built the SCORM engine and the rest of the features and functionality surrounding that core – nothing has been outsourced. As a result, our application developers have become SCORM experts . We know the spec, cold.

Are You Unhappy with Your LMS?

Posted by Ed Gipple on Sep 25, 2012 11:13:21 AM

A lot of our customers are refugees from other LMS provider. We’ve heard many reasons why a customer exploring our LMS is looking to leave the system they currently use; some of the more common are:

  • Not learner-friendly
  • Lacks reporting flexibility
  • Too many unforeseen expenses
  • Poor technical support
  • Does not scale well

Other complaints tend to be more specific, like no SCORM 2004 support, or no ability to connect with social platforms or web-conferences. Of course, while we don’t meet every customer’s requirements, we certainly have our share of converts!

What Our Customers are Saying

Posted by Ed Gipple on Sep 11, 2012 9:39:50 AM

While we get fairly frequent direct emails from our customers on their satisfaction with the our learning management system, they are frequently pretty brief and sent without expectation they’ll be made public.

So we’ve setup an Inquisiq review site to provide a public venue for customers to post a review of our LMS. Here are a few highlights:

  • We investigated 13 other LMS vendors before choosing Inquisiq R3 - I have ZERO regrets about our decision.
  • Some companies will try and sell you on those big systems and several weeks deployment - that's crazy! You can deploy this with 1-2 employees for 10,000+ users in 2 weeks.
  • Stable SCORM implementation. Superior logical design and physical system implementation. Intuitive interface. Very high value for every fee dollar.

What is a Learning Management System (LMS)?

Posted by Heather Zauner on Jun 21, 2012 1:43:43 PM

A good way to start the blog on our Inquisiq LMS product is to define exactly what an LMS is for and can do. One starting point, as the search engines seem to agree, is Wikipedia,

"A learning management system (LMS) is a software application for the administration, documentation, tracking, and reporting of training programs, classroom and online events, e-learning programs, and training content."
