How mobile learning is transforming the learning systems market and why [Webinar Q&A]

We recently teamed up with Fosway to present an insightful webinar on mobile learning, how organizations are pursuing mobile strategies, and why this type of content distribution has finally taken off in organizations across all industries.

As always, the webinar concluded with a Q&A session. Fosway founder David Wilson tackled the questions, and we have his answers for you right here. Take a look, and if you haven’t already, check out the webinar recording.

But the world of online learning goes way beyond the LMS – there are other parts of the learning infrastructure that are being handled by other systems.

It’s essential that your LMS can integrate easily with other systems to make sure your organization is ready for the world of digital learning. Most organizations expect their LMS provider to help them connect with other systems but there is not a lot of LMS integration actually occurring.

In today’s fast-paced global environment, companies are regularly challenged to adopt and respond to new business and compliance requirements, quicker than before.
