We love having fun with infographics so the eFront team put together an infographic on LMS demographics with data collected over a two year period!
Here are some highlights:
1. Regarding global interest, LMSs still dominate in English speaking countries with interest from parts of Asia and, surprisingly, Europe lagging behind.

3. More than 50% of institutions prefer to host their LMS internally and small installations dominate. Continue reading
We recently had the pleasure of speaking with Epignosis eFront customer Mentor Graphics. With headquarters located in Oregon, Mentor Graphics Corporation is a world leader in electronic hardware and software design solutions, providing products, consulting services and award-winning support for the world’s most successful electronic, semiconductor and systems companies. Established in 1981, the company reported revenues in the last fiscal year of nearly $1,090 million.
Their objective was to ensure that all technical staff were up-to-date and trained with the latest knowledge and practices in order provide the best technical advice on the capabilities of tools to customers. Mentor benchmarked eFront against several leading LMSs and in the end chose eFront as the best value solution for their specific requirements.
“eFront rated best in several categories including the support we received from the Epignosis team during our evaluation and the hosted plan (up to 500 users) which was selected as best value.”

For straightforward, content-based online learning eFront is hard to beat.
We’ve been spending quite a bit of time recently with eFront. It comes from the team at Epignosis who have also brought us TalentLMS (a fantastically user-friendly, cloud-based basic learning management system).
eFront is the older brother of TalentLMS, and is designed to support a more tutor-led, social approach to online learning.
Four key, stand-out features are:
- A really clean user interface, which draws a lot on modern techniques like AJAX
- A Facebook-like chat box, that sits at the bottom of your screen

We recently put together a list of the coolest features (and the all-important ’6th element’) in commercial editions of eFront. From specialized reports to TinCan which offers the freedom to learn through more engaging ways, here we list the features that stand out the most:
1. REPORTS GENERATOR
There is no end to the need for specialized reports! And although it isn’t feasible to create a report for each and every individual, eFront Enterprise offers a flexible way around this by allowing users to design their own!
2. SKILL-GAP TESTS
Before even taking a course skill-gap tests can be used to determine which courses users should take. Skill-gap tests spot the gaps in user knowledge and map them with courses especially designed to fill those gaps. Skill-gap tests are an advanced functionality usually found in expensive talent management software – but they come as a standard in eFront Educational and eFront Enterprise. Continue reading
However, setting up the file indexer to work is a little tricky. In this short guide we present the steps needed to enable Xapian on a Centos-6.3 machine. Similar steps can be taken for other Linux flavors. Unfortunately windows are not supported for the time being.
In the following we assume that an eFront instance is already up and running on the server. In addition, all commands should be run with root privileges. Continue reading
We recently had the pleasure of speaking with eFront partner FusedLearning. FusedLearning is a learning solutions provider that offers technology and services in learning management and mobile education – and FusedLearning has partnered with Epignosis and eFront Learning to offer comprehensive online learning business solutions.

“Prior to teaming up with eFront, we reviewed over 5 other top LMS companies and none had the ease-of-use, flexibility and growth capabilities that eFront provides out of the box.”
