12:15 PM - 1:00 PM Thursday, October 26
Expo Hall: Innovation Showcase Stage
Respected industry analyst Josh Bersin has highlighted that more companies are choosing to turn their learning management systems “off.” When the inevitable five- to seven-year cycle of replacing the LMS comes up for discussion, more and more companies are simply not bothering to replace the old with the new.
If you are facing this decision in the near future, the obvious question is: What is the alternative?
Will an LMS always be necessary, or are you just paying deference to the investments in eLearning that you’ve already made? What might life look like after the LMS?
In this session, you will learn:
- Why organizations are choosing to “turn off” their LMSs
- What alternatives exist for delivering learning experiences
- How other organizations are changing their learning architectures
- How you can build the business case for an alternative to an LMS
Intermediate to advanced managers, directors, and senior leaders (VP, CLO, executive, etc.).
Technology discussed in this session:
Content curation tools, xAPI, learning record stores (LRSs), and personal learning environments.
