Jay Shaw on the Future of LMS

March 30, 2010 Sarah Danzl

Jay Shaw is the co-founder and CEO of NetDimensions, a performance, knowledge, and learning management systems provider that Jay has built out of Hong Kong to a truly global enterprise over the past 11 years. Jay is also the author of the newly launched Work, Learn, Play blog, where he freely and openly argues on how technology relates to work and on how people get the information they need to do their jobs.

In this podcast, Jay misquotes Marc Twain by arguing that “rumors of LMS’ death are greatly exaggerated.” He discusses how recovering economies and globalization have changed the LMS business models resulting in new drivers for the adoption of LMSs globally such as compliance, risk management, and special-purpose learning portals. Jay then gets on social learning and addresses the key question “who owns social media” in a company. And closing out, he is also sharing his advice on how training organizations can make the best out of their LMS investment.
