What is the Difference Between E-Learning Software and E-Learning Solutions?

It is no secret that e-learning is quickly becoming the solution many organizations turn to for delivering cost effective and successful training programs. However, many organizations are too quick to invest in impressive looking software such as an authoring tool or a Learning Management System (LMS) because they are convinced that this software is the one-stop solution to developing effective e-learning programs. What organizations don’t understand is that without a clear understanding of how to use these tools or the capability to implement their functionality, their e-learning programs are sure to fail.


What is ‘Software’?

E-learning ‘software’ can include but is not limited to authoring tools, design tools, animation tools, avatar tools, audio tools, a LMS, an editing tool, a rendering tool and so much more. What most e-learning software companies neglect to tell the customer is that the software their organization has invested in is only one piece of the puzzle. Creating an effective e-learning program requires a combination of tools, processes and capabilities that, when brought together, create an effective and successful e-learning program.

What are ‘Solutions’?

An e-learning ‘solution’ is providing customers with an e-learning program that works best for their audience taking  into consideration the learner’s environment, the content and the context all while staying within a desired budget. Bringing together the right processes, technologies and capabilities in order to deliver a superior e-learning product is the key to e-learning success.
