After shining at the 2009 Brandon Hall Excellence in Learning Technology Awards with 1 Gold and 2 Silver, UpsideLMS, Upside Learning’s flagship Learning Management System, has been named as one of the top five emerging LMSs in Chief Learning Officer magazine’s July 2010 edition, by the chairman of Brandon Hall Research.
The article’s theme was well summarized in the opening paragraph which said, “New learning management systems arrive on the scene almost daily. These technologies include both key functionalities and features you expect to find as well as additional capabilities that, in some cases, go above and beyond those found in some of the best-known pre-existing systems. Here are five up-and-coming LMS providers to watch.”
UpsideLMS’ name figuring amongst the top 5 LMSs is no surprise. Having won Silver in Best Advance in Social Learning Technology from Brandon Hall Research, the system’s ability to leverage social learning components and mold them in accordance with traditional learning methodology makes it truly a class apart. This is brought about by a unique social learning framework that lets users access social tools from within the LMS in a robust and secure environment. This framework provides a unique way to capture various types of knowledge that are prevalent in the enterprise. It goes beyond the conventional view of courseware, assignments and assessment, to become a system fundamental to an enterprise and its employees? success.
