410 Using a Content Aggregator to Create an Integrated Learning Experience
10:45 AM - 11:45 AM Thursday, October 26
St Croix A
Organizational learning is increasingly becoming a blend of multiple assets from a wide variety of resources. How do you combine YouTube videos, a learning vendor course, an SME white paper and PowerPoint, an internal presentation recording, conference proceedings, and other resources into an effective learner experience that you can track and report on? The simple answer is to use a learning stack with a content aggregation front end. But what does that mean?
In this session, you will learn how the combination of a learning stack and a content aggregator can provide a new and unique integrated learning approach for your organization. You will explore the components of a learning stack and examine a content aggregator from both the developer-curator and learner perspectives. You will discover how this approach allows you to solve the problem of integrating diverse content sources and types into a cohesive, measurable learning experience.
In this session, you will learn:
- What integrated learning is, and why it is so valuable to L&D
- About the critical elements of a learning stack
- How to tie elements of the learning stack together to create an integrated learning experience
- What to consider as you migrate to (or build) the infrastructure and practices for an integrated learning culture
Intermediate to advanced designers, developers, managers, and directors.
discussed in this session:
