Assignment 2: SWOT Analysis and Presentation

Based on the feedback from your professor for the first assignment,

You will continue working on your recommendations for an LMS for your organization. You must compare and contrast two (2) different LMSs using a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) analysis on each system that you have identified as two (2) potential solutions.

Once you have completed the SWOT analysis, you will create a presentation for the organization so that they are able to make the best choice possible.

You must submit the SWOT analysis and your recommendation as two (2) separate files for the completion of this assignment. Label each file name according to the section of the assignment it is written for.

******Professors Feedback (This paper was very difficult to grade because you didn’t follow the required APA format in the organization of your paper! You must always provide headers for each section that coincides with assignment instructions. This is required in APA style papers.  In APA, you must have at least level one and level two headers! APA requires them, because they give structure to your writing. They not only tell the reader what content to expect but also speak to its relative position within a hierarchy.)
