There are amazing software tools out there, but L&D departments are typically the first to be cut and the last to receive funding. How can you deliver world-class training on a shoestring budget?

In this session, you will learn how a large corporation used open-source tools to deliver a data scientist certification program, training for customers, and enablement for employees within the company. You will learn how open-source tools allow companies to go green by replacing printed materials with annotatable PDFs. And you will learn how collecting detailed analytics with an open-source LRS is shaping the direction of the entire education division.

  • What “open source” means
  • What open-source options are available
  • Different ways to deliver on an open-source platform
  • How you can utilize an open-source LRS
