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.

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!

Unique LMS Requirements for Online Training Providers

Posted by Ed Gipple on Aug 23, 2012 11:59:29 AM

Training Providers, as an industry distinguished from more formalized, corporate training providers, can have unique requirements for LMS functionality - both from the perspective of marketing, administration, and target audience:

  • As a content expert with a wide range of user demographics, an easy-to-use, ‘friendly’ system for implementing your training program is critical.
  • Changes in the eLearning subject-matter is continuously evolving, requiring a smart solution to allow recurring assessments, updated content, and certifications.
  • Lack of experience selling or promoting eLearning courseware is limiting growth.
  • The delivery system must scale with your company as it grows.
  • Limited availability of knowledgeable trainers is limiting your potential.
  • Personnel limitations with HR and/or IT staff is preventing growth.
  • Environmental resources may not allow for internal systems.

The Inquisiq learning management system allows training providers to overcome these challenges.
