The eLearning Guild announced today the publication of a new Guild Research 360o Report on Learning Management Systems (LMS). The selection, implementation, and ongoing management of an LMS is likely to be one of the most costly investments a learning organization can make.
Awards that Moodle won include:
- Guild Research 2007 Members Choice Award – Market Share (Small and Medium Corporate Learning Management Systems)
- Guild Research 2007 Members Choice Award – Market Share Education and Government Learning Management Systems
- Guild Research 2007 Members Choice Award – Satisfaction Small and Medium Corporate Learning Management Systems
- Guild Research 2007 Members Choice Award – Satisfaction Education and Government Learning Management Systems
For this report, the E-Learning Guild based market share ratings on data from over 2,300 respondent’s satisfaction ratings from over 1,200 respondents. In addition, the Guild surveyed over 930 e-Learning professionals representing 840 different organizations to definitively document the state of the LMS industry. The enormous size of this data pool enabled the Guild to reveal findings such as: The cost per learner to acquire, configure, and customize an LMS; the fact that 29.58% of respondents plan to upgrade their LMS in the next 12 months; that Moodle enjoys both the largest market share and the highest satisfaction in smaller corporations; and that 11% of respondents believe they have not received a return on their investment in an LMS.
