Pathlore Web Seminars Show How to Avoid e-Learning’s Five Deadly Mistakes Topics Cover Basics of Learning Management Systems, Cost Savings and ROI Achieved

AUCKLAND - 6 November 2002 - Pathlore New Zealand today announced a series of Web seminars focused on the best strategies for not only selecting a Learning Management System (LMS) but also landing cost savings and rapid ROI through a LMS.

The seminars are aimed at organisations considering e-Learning initiatives. They will provide resourceful information on how to successfully select, implement and evaluate their organisation’s training programs. Participants will also come to grips with buzz words like 'learning management system', 'virtual classrooms', 'skill gap analysis' and 'online learning'. The two live, interactive one-hour seminars will be hosted by David Currie, Pathlore’s Account Executive for Asia Pacific. They will be presented directly to participant’s desktops via real-time web cast with streaming audio to create a dynamic learning experience. Participants will have the ability to engage with Pathlore presenters by clicking yes/no responses or using a chat screen.

The two web seminar topics are: Best Strategies in Selecting an LMS (19th November 2002, 8:00am) Learning Management Systems - what's behind the hype? Discover what an LMS is, what it does, when to buy and when to build your own. You'll also learn the five deadly mistakes to avoid when choosing an LMS and the seven things to look for in an effective LMS.

Cost Savings and Rapid ROI with Learning Management (20th November 2002, 8:00am) Packed with examples of how Learning Management Systems (LMS) can solve the business issues facing organisations, this seminar focuses on the cost effectiveness of having an LMS. Learn about key business drivers that caused many of Pathlore’s customers to implement an LMS and how their implementations quickly resulted in a positive ROI. For example, Pathlore customer NEC America’s LMS reduced the company’s training costs by 28 percent in 30 days. “We’ve had overwhelming response to previous web seminars held,” says David Currie. “These seminars have been organised in response to the interest from New Zealand organisations in the public and private sector who want to share in our experiences and interact with our experts to gain knowledge of the cost-effective adoption of e-Learning solutions and the implications they have for business success.” To register and for further information about the seminar series, visit
