Social Media integration in the LMS

Social Media integration right within your LMS - what a novel concept.  In building iPresent Online, one of our goals was to integrate easily with the various 3rd party social media sites that have become so popular around the web these days.  When planning an online training initiative, one of the biggest hassles is figuring out how to get your existing users registered in the new system.  This often makes the thought of changing LMS providers a daunting one.  Well, in this wonderful new world of Social Learning, your users or members or students can simply sign in to your new LMS using their existing social media account. 

iPresent Online supports user registration and authentication via Twitter, Facebook, Linked In, Google, and Yahoo.  We will be adding more 3rd party providers in the future.  iPresent Online is also, all about flexibility.  So we allow site administrators to choose either Social Media account registration or standard registration, or both.  Also, administrators may choose which social site providers your members can authenticate with. 

By integrating with some of the web's most popular social services, this also allows for deeper integrations in the future.  I hope you enjoy the new updates.
