10:00 AM - 10:45 AM Wednesday, October 24
Expo Hall: Management Xchange Stage
It’s a common story: An organization implements a proprietary learning platform that promises to meet the company’s every need. This pairing seems to be a match made in heaven... until it isn’t. Gone are the days of a “one-size-fits-all” solution. In today’s rapidly changing eLearning ecosystem, companies require a flexible solution that can be customized to meet a plethora of needs—from onboarding to PD to eCommerce and more.
Open-source solutions are now the key to a “happy-ever-after” LMS choice. In this session, you will learn how you can utilize the four freedoms that open-source platform Totara Learn provides: the freedom to innovate, save, choose, and learn—to achieve eLearning success. By leveraging an open-source learning platform, organizations are able to adapt their training solutions to meet evolving eLearning needs, allowing them to effectively future-proof their learning system and investment. This session will explore how Vistaprint uses Totara Learn to educate and empower its CARE specialists across the globe to achieve business objectives while enjoying the freedom to learn.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to structure your training programs with longevity in mind (and why the technology your LMS uses matters)
- Why current trends in the corporate eLearning ecosystem encourage the use of a flexible and interoperable learning platform
- How the robust functionality and endless integrations of open-source platforms like Totara Learn provide a scalable, customizable, best-of-breed, and future-proof eLearning solution
