How to make your Certification Global

A good certification program can have a profound impact on an industry organization. When done well, the most basic effects of a certification program include the improvement of technical competency, increased availability of 

talent, and the validation of user skills for consistent performance. Beyond these basic benefits, there is another level. Certification programs can deliver value while commanding leadership that is clearly visible on a global scale, thereby generating strong brand loyalty.

Digital Badges: Where are they Going? 

Posted by Christine Avery on Jan 23, 2018 8:41:59 AM

One of the biggest promises in this age of “big data” is that we won’t be limited by the number (or type) of questions we can ask. With the number of online learning environments increasing, how do we showcase what we have learned? Methods for obtaining a degree or certification have become easier with the growth of opportunities for online learning. Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have brought the entire classroom into your home, offering more learning opportunities to anyone who seeks to expand their knowledge on any topic.

What is XSI?


For Xvoucher, supplier integration is the most common and fastest growing type of application integration.

Understanding MOOCs

Posted by Cherie McInturff on Jan 10, 2018 7:46:37 AM


The availability of non-traditional educational opportunities is flourishing in the age of widespread Internet access, allowing for an expansion of new learning modalities in how information is conveyed. From traditional students and professionals to skilled workers and the insatiably curious, new ways of learning have created opportunities for anyone with internet access and the drive to seek out information. There is a massive demand for educational services, however, a one-size-fits-all approach is not the most efficient way to add value, particularly in professional settings. Certificates are now more common than associates or master’s degrees, demonstrating that educational opportunities no longer must adhere to the rigid format of brick and mortar classrooms.

Beyond Core, Beyond Limits—the Comprehensive LMS Ecosystem


In our discussion about LMS core function and its limits, we’ve touched on the enterprise solution of employing an IT team to build out LMS functionality. Though this approach is too often cost-prohibitive, the underlying work of linking at different levels is a sound approach.

Learning Management Systems Limitations: Part 2 Outside the Core

Posted by Cherie McInturff on Nov 20, 2017 8:30:00 AM

A common complaint about LMSs across audiences is that they don’t deliver the highly interactive, easily accessible learning experience employees want, nor do they provide the business results sought by executives. That’s because they weren’t really designed to do either. Recall that LMSs are designed to be proficient at core functions. Fulfilling core functions for a given audience has often resulted in tradeoffs that compromise other functions users expect or need:

Learning Management Systems a Series: Part 1 The Good, The Bad and the New Way to Leverage Them

Posted by Cherie McInturff on Nov 13, 2017 8:30:00 AM

Learning Management Systems: 

There are plenty of opinions about the current state of learning management systems (LMSs)—some say their expiration date is near, while others assert LMS is alive and well. Numbers are revealing here. Investments made in these systems each year, to the tune of over $5.2 billion show a continued prominence. That number is expected to grow to more than $15 billion by 2021 and it doesn’t take into account associated investments in platforms and tools—including content development and integration, assessment, curation and other marketplaces.
