10:45 AM - 11:45 AM Wednesday, October 25
Consumer experiences with YouTube, Snapchat, Netflix, console games, and virtual and augmented reality are shaping demand for a new generation of corporate digital learning. How do you develop a generation of learners who may have spent more time with video games than in school? How do you leverage the explosion of screens and devices to change behavior? How can augmented and virtual reality bring immersion, engagement, and presence to new levels?
In this session, you’ll learn how the new corporate digital learning landscape of serious games, podcasts, simulations, short-form videos, 3-D immersive experiences, mobile, and virtual reality is poised to forever change the way people learn and organizations teach. You’ll examine how leading Fortune 500 companies are harnessing corporate digital learning to build organizational capabilities. From sales skills taught in a spy-themed game with live-action video, to leadership skills taught with 3-D immersive simulations, to technical skills taught with virtual and augmented reality, you will see what corporate digital learning can look like.
In this session, you will learn:
- How corporate digital learning represents a shift from a classroom model to a consumer-app mindset
