Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) March 3, 2011
The International School of Hospitality (TISOH) presented a scholar-practitioner abstract at the 2011 Academy of Human Resource Development (AHRD) International Research Conference in the Americas held in Schaumburg (Chicago), IL. The abstract was titled “Selecting Learning Management Systems for Small Schools and Learning Centers” and was authored by Donnell G. Bayot M.Ed. CHE, TISOH Director of Academic Affairs, Timothy M Lam MS MIBS CHT, TISOH Executive Director and Yeonsoo Kim Ph.D. SPHR, Associate Professor at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
The abstract explored the feasibility of selecting alternative learning management systems (LMS) for small schools and learning centers. Small schools/learning centers have needs that go beyond cost, including functionality, support, and implementation issues. Given these unique needs, the abstract encourages small schools/learning centers to be creative and seek solutions beyond the norm to achieve savings and operational efficiency. The abstract documented a case example of the experience at TISOH in implementing the Adobe Connect Pro system as an alternative LMS. “As a continuing education school dedicated to the hospitality industry, TISOH is uniquely positioned to explore new technologies to advance effective learning in this dynamic field,” said Donnell G. Bayot, first author of the abstract.
