Learning management systems don't enable learning. They enable credentialing. They enable organizations(administrators, hr-managers, risk management folks, lawyers) who want to ensure that someone went through the motion, so that they can show compliance when someone sues them for an error committed by an employee. In short, most learning management system buyers only care about compliance. They may tell you and even believe otherwise. This is a fundamental problem in organizational learning, which many people are trying to solve. In my opinion, enterprise software has done very little to enable actual learning in organizations.
I believe that conversation between two people is the best learning technology on earth. In Career OnDemand, we want to enable people to connect with each other and have a conversation so that they can learn from each other, exchange notes on their real-world experiences, borrow ideas and resources from each other and build a trusting learning and mentoring relationship. We want to focus on people and their needs. Credentialing is necessary. But it is not the top problem facing organizations today.
