Dear HR Practitioner,
You know that a Learning Management System (LMS) can bring value to your organization, but how do you make the business case to those outside of HR?
This is one of the most common hurdles that we hear at Halogen Software from our customers, so we thought it would make for a very interesting survey topic. Like you, we wanted to know how organizations are making their decisions around HR technology for learning, including:
• What role HR plays in the selection of the LMS,
• Which LMS features are most important,
• How organizations calculate the ROI of their LMS, and
• Whether learning content is created in-house
Web conferencing can be used in many meeting scenarios, from internal collaboration to presentations, training and large events. IT leaders must examine the use cases that will drive their requirements for a portfolio of online meeting technologies.
Learning Management Systems (LMS) allow companies to focus on the right component of the learning process – and that is the learning. Administrative activities like registering for training or recording training completion are automated. Required compliance programs can be delivered online, reducing costs. Managers can share training feedback that supports the company’s business goals.
Higher education has come under increasing scrutiny as never before due to rising costs, changes in future job requirements, and new forms of learning opportunities offered by non-traditional companies and institutions. Students and parents are rightfully questioning the value of higher education based on perceived outcomes as well as staggering student loans that in some cases could take a lifetime to pay back. While the value equation debate rages on, there is another phenomenon taking place. It is nothing short of a revolution regarding the advances in technology and how institutions of higher learning along with nontraditional organizations are utilizing these powerful new tools. These new tools include new mobile devices, enhanced and feature-rich learning management systems, data-feeding sensors, 3D printers, smart classrooms, smart buildings, and collaboration tools allowing students and faculty to collaborate just about anywhere face-to-face, virtually.

Today’s K-12 schools are hungry for bandwidth. The reason is clear: highperforming, reliable and easily expanded network services support the latest classroom innovations, including videoconferencing, 1:1 computing, distance learning and modern learning management systems. It’s no surprise then that progressive educators now see a direct link between the overall success of their school districts and access to high-capacity networks. This emerged as a clear trend in new research by the Center for Digital Education (CDE) — a commanding 98 percent of administrators and IT representatives said the future of K-12 education hinges on ubiquitous connectivity.
This white paper lays a framework for planning and implementing high-performance networks. In addition to explaining why now’s the time to plan network upgrades, this paper answers one of the fundamental questions asked by IT managers at schools everywhere: “How much network capacity will we actually need?”

The reality of business today means that organizations will have to grow the talent they need when they can’t find it. Developing talent internally over the long term will be most of the solution.
