SMNX201 Give Your Organization the Freedom to Innovate
10:00 AM - 10:45 AM Thursday, October 25
Expo Hall: Management Xchange Stage
Highly customized learning platforms may sound like an inherently good thing. But what if those customizations are patching holes rather than tailoring the performance of your learning solution to your organization’s needs? These kinds of patches and workarounds can hinder a learning professional’s ability to innovate. In the rapidly evolving world of digital learning, the freedom to innovate is essential for a sustainable, scalable, and efficient learning program.
By leveraging open-source solutions, organizations can adapt a completely supported system to their evolving business needs. In this session, Totara partner Remote-Learner will detail how they helped the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence to reimagine what their nationally renowned training could be. Along the way, attendees will learn how to increase the likelihood of success, how to minimize the likelihood of confusion, how to organize the segmentation of learner audiences, and how to improve the efficiency of learning administration.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to increase the likelihood of success through strong project scoping
- How to minimize the likelihood of organizational turmoil through strong implementation practices
- How to organize the segmentation of learner audiences for efficient content delivery
- How to improve the efficiency of learning administration through sound system design
Intermediate to advanced designers, managers, and senior leaders (VP, CLO, executive, etc.).
