In a recent interview, LMS King, Robert Joyce explained the importance of the Learning Management System to the future of learning globally.
“E-learning was unheard of 40 years ago, rare 20 years and unusual 10 years ago. Now, every learning institution in the world offers some e-learning programs,” Joyce explained. “Over 70% of the world’s companies offer some online learning, nearly every college and university and most elementary and high school incorporates online learning.
“With all of this e-learning, it is imperative that institutions and individuals choose a Learning Management System that provides them with everything they could need: flexibility, expandability, customer support, ease of use and total compatibility with other systems.
“I believe that in the future entire nations will begin to teach their students entirely online, through large screen televisions, advanced computers and tablets and, who knows, maybe even virtual reality,” Joyce said. “Managing more than simply the content is important for the success of a program and a course. Managing quizzes, tests and ‘in classroom conversation’ are all important aspects of the future of e-learning and Learning Management Systems.”
With projects putting Self-Paced E-learning, as subsection of all e-learning, at $51 billion by 2016, the growth of e-learning is assured.
One of the major areas of e-learning that King Products hopes to see growth is under-served nations. Many nations around the world do not have education systems that allow children to learn and grow to their full potential. King Products looks forward to the day when students in even the poorest countries will be able to log onto a community computer or one provided to them and learn everything that they need to and want to.
“It is possible to teach nearly everything via e-learning already. From basic reading and writing to advanced quantum physics and medicine, e-learning is able to deliver a huge amount of information in a way that children and adults can learn and grow,” Joyce said. “The potential of technology, like our King Products Learning Management System and inexpensive computers and tablets, to change the world is almost unlimited.”
King Products LMS offers different levels for different users from Lite to Professional. Based on Joomla language, King Products LMS is a highly adaptable and expandable software system that provides users with total control over the student’s learning experience.
King Products was founded by Robert Joyce, after he gained years of experience working in the IT field. King Product’s Learning Management System (LMS) has been in development for four years. Today, King Products offers four different levels of LMS to meet the needs of all of their customers.

And even they can forecast data and progress reports. Market of Learning Management system is volatile and it is changing rapidly especially when it comes to Joomla platform. Landscape of LMS is not defined and it keeps on adding with new features.
An organisation adopt LMS basically to meet there E-Learning needs and finding a best suited LMS is not an easy job. Once you select the LMS for your company, your organisation will tend to use it for next 5 to 10 years meeting your organisation needs. So that’s, the reason it makes difficult to select a perfect LMS. Before selecting a LMS, it is important that you evaluate it.
How to evaluate a LMS product
Evaluation of a LMS product basically comprises of five major parts.
1) Need for LMS (Need Analysis)
2) Define your Needs or Requirement’s.
3) List of available options or Products.
4) Evaluate selected option or product.
5) Select from the Evaluation list.
1) Need for LMS – Need analysis is very important in LMS selection of an organisation. You need to check back with the leadership, training teams and Learners for their views. If your organisation is looking for a change of LMS, then you need to consider taking feedback from the training team about their liking and dislikes.
2) Defining Requirements – Requirements forms the base of LMS section so it is very important to know the requirements and it becomes easier to evaluate. To define the requirements you need to gather the previous points for “Need for LMS”, try to think what learners and management would like to achieve from the LMS. Make the express list of requirements broadly based on three criteria’s: Technical, Functional and Costs.
For Example:-Technical – Can this LMS be easily managed, can I define the roles, will it imply any cost for managing or can this be managed by local IT.Functional- Will this LMS be able to track the performance of the employees, Can this be accessed from smart phones.Cost- How much will it cost to the organisation, is there an option yearly payment or volume licencing.
3) Product Available- There are number of products available in the market, you need to shortlist your product selection catalogue based on the on requirements. This will basically filter out non-qualifying LMS products. For example not all products will have will have 18 different types of questions patterns or multi-response options.
4) Product Evaluation- Now you can start evaluating your selected product. Always judge on the different variables like LMS performance, LMS speed, time to load a module etc.
5) Product Selection- This is the final stage of settling with the product. If possible arrange a call with the product manufacturer to get the best product quote or send a request for proposal to your entire product finalist.
Very often big organisation selects a LMS product without surplus investigation on the requirements. A thorough need analysis not helps the organisation but also to its stake holders. Analysis requires a lot of time, but the above points will surely help you make a better picture on your LMS requirements.
