Emerging technologies such as virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), big data, machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI), and advanced learning and organizational analytics are exciting the L&D field. Yet these powerful tools won’t necessarily translate into powerful learning unless they are carefully utilized. The key to this is adaptive learning, a sophisticated methodology that intelligently adapts the learning experience to each individual learner and enables this new generation of technologies.Read More
This is part two of a two-part session. It starts with session 912 from 8:30 AM – 9:30 AM.
With the wide range of tools, apps, and online resources being launched all the time, it’s not always easy to stay on top of what might help you out in your day-to-day work. It’s also easy with this stream of new options to miss out on great new updates or techniques that can allow you to use old favorites in new ways.Read More
Uncovering the need is one thing, but organizing the mountain of content from an SME is an ID’s nightmare. You have to keep the goal in mind. Mind mapping helps you define the goal and align content to the intended outcome.Read More
After the blood, sweat, and tears you put into designing a learning experience, how do you know it made a difference? Ideally, you can measure Kirkpatrick Levels 1 – 4 following your education and be confident of your impact. More often, measuring changing behaviors in the real world is trickier due to issues like cost, or access, inherent in many performance environments (e.g., healthcare). What tools can bridge that gap?Read More
You’re sold on the benefits of performance support, but your internal customers don’t “get” it. With an LMS full of eLearning courses, your learning organization isn’t ready to jump full bore into a performance support approach to learning, and your IT department won’t be investing in performance support delivery technology anytime soon. How can you use your existing assets to create working solutions that prove the worth of this approach?Read More
Mobile learning is attractive to learning designers because it offers the convenience of a bring-your-own-device approach and lends itself to trendy microlearning program structures. The popularity of learning apps such as Duolingo has inspired many to adapt or retrofit their content and learning programs for mobile delivery. This session will explore the challenges presented by the South African context (including socioeconomic differences, technology, and staff competency) for the adoption of mobile learning.Read More
Research demonstrates that when learning is embedded in the everyday flow of work, it has more impact on both the business and learners. You should be wary of designing and investing in solutions that increase the barriers between working and learning. Learning must be available at the point of need. Delivering a true holistic learning experience requires modern tools—tools that enable just-in-time content delivery, streamlined curation of critical information, and comprehensive data analytics.Read More
As learning systems mature, there is an even stronger need to personalize and integrate them. This is possible thanks, in part, to APIs (application programming interfaces). Many learning professionals hear about APIs in their daily workflows but don’t know much about them, which prevents them from being able to comprehend the true potential of these important features.Read More
MOOCs, cMOOCs, SPOCs... To the L&D community, these are incredible tools to have in the toolbox, but there are challenges. Clients usually don’t understand what they really are or the partnerships required to create them. The approach and process is quite different from what is required for most other learning solutions, and as a result, most mainstream L&D practitioners lack the skills needed to create an effective cMOOC experience.Read More
