    INTRODUCTION

    This FrontRunners analysis is a data-driven assessment identifying products in the Learning Management software market that offer the best capability and value for small businesses. For a given market, products are evaluated and given a score for the capability (x-axis) and value (y-axis) they bring to users. FrontRunners then plots the top 25-30 products in a quadrant format.

    In the Learning Management FrontRunners infographic, the Capability axis starts at 3.70 and ends at 4.50, while the Value axis starts at 3.60 and ends at 4.60. Scales may differ between quadrants in order to capture the relative positioning of the specific products in each category.

    To be considered for the Learning Management FrontRunners, a product needed a minimum capability user rating score of 3.0 and a minimum value user rating score of 3.0. So, all products that qualify as FrontRunners are top performing products in their market. The quadrant positions a product relative to its peers in the market.

    Each product falls within a designated quadrant based on their axis scores. Dependent on the specific needs of the software buyer, a product placed in any quadrant category could be a good fit.

    QUADRANT CATEGORIES:

    » Upper Right = Leaders: Leaders are all-around strong products. They offer the highest value and capability in that market.

    » Upper Left = Masters: Masters may have fewer capabilities, but end users value those capabilities highly. Depending on the functionality needed, a product positioned in the Masters quadrant might be a better option to consider than products positioned in other quadrants.

    » Lower Right = Pacesetters: Pacesetters may offer a strong set of capabilities, but are not rated as high on value. For example, a Pacesetter might have a breadth of functionality at a higher price point.

    » Lower Left = Contenders: Contenders are strong- performing products that have not yet achieved the Value and Capability of the products in the other quadrants. For example, products in this quadrant may be more suited for companies that need more specialized functionality that comes at a price.

    Learning Management Systems (LMSs) assist organizations—including both schools and businesses—in managing their online learning or training programs. They help users manage the administration, testing, tracking and reporting of learner progress through online courses.

    Software Advice’s FrontRunners quadrant is focused on the North American LMS market. We identify this set of core capabilities for the help desk software category: learning management and course tracking.

    In addition, we identify several related features that organizations purchasing an LMS may also need or wish to consider: certification and compliance management, virtual classroom, course library, proficiency testing / reporting, content authoring, extended enterprise, social learning, mobile learning, AICC / SCORM compliance, asynchronous learning, blended learning, gamification, gradebook, student portal and Tin Can API.
