Comment: In recent months there have been relatively few large contracts signed in the learning technologies world – certainly compared with the boom days of the mid-2000s. So it’s encouraging for the whole sector to see a global organisation opt for an LCMS platform; be prepared to talk about doing so, and praise the technology as meeting both the buying organisation’s and the learners’ needs.
