Track: Strategy

The way we learn is changing. In his Predictions for 2015 report, Josh Bersin states we are in an era where corporate learning is going through as much change as we witnessed when eLearning hit the scene. Corporate learning strategies have always treated learning as an event. That’s not how we learn best. We learn continuously, on the job. We learn by making mistakes and solving problems. Your learners are asking you to shift away from formal training to more focused, ad hoc learning. How do you evolve your learning strategy to adapt to this shift?

Track: Data and Measurement

The Experience API (xAPI) has been in production for more than a year now, and it is becoming more important for training and development teams to learn the ABCs of this important new set of technologies and approaches to tracking and reporting.

The development of workplace skills happens primarily beyond the traditional eLearning course, through on-the-job experience and coaching by managers. Mobile technologies like the Experience API have made it practical to implement on-the-job learning. You’ll see how a 70:20:10 learning path was deployed on employees’ smartphones to increase speed to proficiency. Using the TREK Learning Experience Manager platform, they accessed video modeling and performance support at the moment of need. They used their phones’ sensors (camera, audio, video, and GPS) to capture evidence of work and submit it to coaches for feedback. You’ll see how to design and implement scalable apprenticeship.

Track: Instructional Design

Learning and development professionals are under pressure to produce real results. Many times the traditional methods of instructional design and content development are not getting the job done. We have to think differently on how to design, develop, and leverage technology to create learning experiences that actually impact performance and get the results that matter.

This session will show how an LRS can cater to the L&D need to design learning solutions that better meet learner requirements by analyzing current user trends and business performance data. The bugs in a badly designed course, or the areas where learners have difficulty comprehending content, or a poorly designed assessment ultimately affects business performance and results. An LRS integrated with the LMS can be that “missing link” that can conclusively establish a relationship between learning and business performance and results.

Track: Data and Measurement

Medical education in North America is taught in a decentralized manner with in-class coursework delivered in small blocks and students gaining learning experiences in hospitals and other institutions outside of the university. Medical schools need a way to capture and analyze these experiences to get a true picture of a student’s readiness to treat patients. Furthermore, learning requirements are set to change for medical residents from set-year programs to a competency-based model. Current LMSs alone aren’t able to tie outside experiences to competencies.

Track: Emerging Tech

We have all experienced huge courses, documents, and texts that are barely manageable by the instructional designer. In fact, much of how we design courses and documents makes it impossible for an employee to find the one piece of information they need at the time they need it. Since content is so dense, it makes finding meaningful information difficult, and it makes tracking anything useful in it even more difficult.

With the growing use of the Experience API (xAPI), it’s easy to feel intimidated if you’re not a developer. While rapid development tools offer integration of the xAPI, a custom application would often be beneficial. In this session you’ll learn how non-developers can create their own Experience API projects. You’ll learn about readily available components that can be combined with some minor coding to build custom platforms. Finally, we’ll look at available HTML elements that come equipped with easily edited code to build solutions around content.

Two of the most popular technologies used to engage learners today are video and mobile. Videos are becoming increasingly interactive—even on mobile devices—but developing these videos can be complex. Where does an organization start? In this session you will explore how organizations can apply interactive video on any modern device to create an impactful experience. You will see how one organization in particular is managing the challenges that only bleeding-edge technology can provide. You will also explore how video interactions can be tracked and correlated with performance data using xAPI to measure real business impact from training.

Track: Tools

You’re all excited about the promise of an Experience API-enabled world, but you’ve still got a learning management system (LMS) and a whole host of SCORM-based courses. Now what? In most cases, you’ll need to manage the transition—read: republish your library for the Experience API (xAPI)—over the months and years to come. But what if you could get the most out of both an LMS and a learning record store (LRS) at the same time as you move to your next-generation learning-and-performance infrastructure?

Track: Data and Measurement

Every year, we spend millions of dollars on training and development. One of the ways we can determine the value achieved is by using analytics to assess who is using the content, where, when, and how. But with all this data available, which data points matter? Deciphering the ways to analyze a program’s effectiveness can be confusing. And just because we have a lot of data, does that really make any of it valuable?

Track: Data and Measurement

Tracking learning and performance activities to be able to analyze them and interpret their value has always been a desire of learning professionals. Having this information naturally leads to the opportunity to refine the effectiveness of the learning experiences. Until now, this has been time and cost prohibitive.
