STRS103 Learning Ecosystem Success: 5 Plain and Simple Smart Hacks
12:15 PM - 1:00 PM Wednesday, October 24
Expo Hall: Strategic Solutions Stage
Learning is an intrinsically human activity that happens in many places and in many ways. It doesn’t matter how great or feature-rich any one learning system is; learning will never happen in just one place. The modern learning ecosystem not only recognizes this reality but embraces it to support the learner wherever and however he or she learns best.
Getting started on the journey to a learning ecosystem can seem daunting. So technical, so expensive, so involved and exhausting! But it doesn’t have to be. In fact, you’ll learn five smart hacks for making your journey towards a more mature learning ecosystem easier. These are simple, do-able hacks. You’ll start with a definition of a learning ecosystem—both for beginners and advanced audiences—and get into real, simple, tactical activities you can consider now.
In this session, you will learn:
- A functional definition of what a learning ecosystem is and the reasons companies are implementing them.
- To choose interoperable tools to begin with. Even if you’re not jumping into an ecosystem yet, put interoperability on your requirements checklist for any systems you pick up. You’ll be so happy later down the line.
- To set up a learning record store (LRS). An LRS sets you up to future-proof and standardize your data.
- To make measurement part of your world. The old carpenter’s adage says, “Measure twice, cut once.”
- To have single sign on (SSO) in place. It gives your learners a seamless experience and standardizes reporting.
- To have a “launch-support-improve” campaign. It’s more than adoption at this point, it’s about using the learning ecosystem for one of its key advantages—setting you up for continuous improvement.
