For us this New Year has been more than just resolutions. After a successful 2010, we are all geared up for 2011 with more events and more plans. And hence more opportunities to help you in managing your learning better!

We are kick starting the year with a Brandon Hall Research webinar on ‘How to Select the Right LMS for Your Small/Medium Business’. Scheduled on January 19th, 2011, this would be the first of many webinars that we have planned for 2011. This FREE webinar will be sponsored by Upside Learning and will address the critical problems and questions faced by most Small- and Medium- Businesses (SMBs) while selecting an LMS.

The thought for the webinar is rooted in the fact that Learning Management Systems (LMSs) are playing an increasingly important role in workplace learning by providing a suitable platform for managers to manage learning effectively.  Although large organizations have adopted these systems readily, their high costs and technological infrastructure requirements have prevented Small- & Medium- Businesses to utilize LMSs to their full potential.

Tom Werner, a Brandon Hall Research Senior Analyst in charge of LMS research, along with Richard Nantel, CEO of Brandon Hall, will conduct the 1 hour session, sharing insights on how to make LMS selection efficient and accurate. The session would be concluded by a Q&A session wherein the participants would have an opportunity to interact with the experts one-on-one.

The FREE 60 minute webinar will be held on January 19, 2011 at 1:00 p.m. EST.
