Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I already have an LMS, why do I need
A: Learn.net's blended learning platform uses LMS technology to administer, track and report on courses, tests, quizzes, surveys etc. We logically co-exist with your legacy LMS system and feed the results data to that LMS, or any other HRIS system (typically pass/fail results only). If you already have an enterprise LMS, the Learn.net system becomes your toolset and repository for all training activities, where all detailed training activities are kept (such as all the answers to test questions).
Q: I use WebEx | LiveMeeting | GoToMeeting.
Why should I consider eTutor instead?
A: The above-mentioned (excellent) platforms were designed for presentation and meeting purposes; eTutor was designed from the ground up to be a VirtualClassroom tool. All training activities in eTutor are tracked (such as attendance or quiz scores), and become part of a learner's permanent portfolio. eTutor is part of Learn.net's suite of blended learning technologies called CADE and emulates an instructor-led classroom through the use of several collaboration tools such as screen-sharing/peek, whiteboarding, chat and brainstorming. Whereas WebEx is a point-solution, eTutor is part of the CADE ecosystem.

MAPLE and LMW learning management systems?

The LMW can be operated behind your firewall or operated in the cloud; it's key strengths are ease of customization and configuration, and the integration with eTutor and satellite-based Virtual Classrooms.
