In order to reduce confusion, the Acorn internal subject matter experts have released an informative guide on eLearning platforms.

Online PR News – 20-May-2021 – Canberra – eLearning platforms have diversified exponentially since the late 90s, meaning the market has become flooded with a multitude of niche products. The Acorn internal subject matter experts recognise this makes it confusing to find the best solution. In response, they’ve moved to release an informative guide to help organisations understand and evaluate different platforms. Acorn is a product of Pursuit Technology, the full article is now available on their Acorn Labs blog: https://bit.ly/3tzG8W8

In Co-Founder & Managing Director Blake Proberts’ words: “What’s in a name? A great deal, when you consider that ‘learning’ and ‘course’ represent an entirely different use case when put in front of the term ‘management system’.

“Not to mention the price difference between eLearning products can be vast too once you factor in the cost of research, implementation, support, maintenance and buy-in.”

Acorn’s article is all about breaking things down. It details commoditised content vs business training. It explores the difference between online learning platforms and online course platforms. It wraps up by detailing the difference between a learning management system, learning content management system, authoring tool and eLearning portal. These four items have their own specific functions but can interact with one another.

This content on the surface looks quite daunting and technical, but Acorn’s article aims to explain everything in a simple and direct manner. Beyond giving those who may not be clued in on eLearning platforms some grounded knowledge, the article also features guidance on procuring a solution which best fits the organisation.

In addition to being a useful information resource, the article also provides a handy LMS Feasibility Study for potential users to help ensure what seems like the perfect LMS, actually is.
