About The Webinar

Depending on the type of technology your LMS uses, there may be a variety of ways that you can support your system. For example, open-source systems allow you to either self-host, which you can do on premise or in the cloud, or host your platform with an eLearning partner who can also provide service and help you maximize the value of your eLearning investment. Different hosting options provide different advantages, and it really comes down to your institution's preferences and specific goals. 

Join us on June 18th at 11am ET / 4pm BST to explore the advantages and potential pitfalls of each type of hosting option. You'll also learn how to determine what kind of service and support model is better suited to supporting your institution's learning programs.

During the session, we'll explore:

  • Why the type of technology your LMS uses is important, including significant considerations regarding data ownership, security, LMS configuration, product updates and most importantly, support  
  • The hosting, support, and technology options available in the ever-changing eLearning ecosystem 
  • How to create an LMS RFP to ensure selection of the best possible vendor/platform

Duration: 1 hour
