Custom Learning Experiences:  When No LMS Will Do 

Recorded Wednesday, July 26, 2017


Are training revenues the lifeblood of your business? With so much at stake, you can’t afford a learning platform and content that misses the mark. Yet, even with more than 700 LMSs available today, it’s easy to come up short.

That’s because most LMSs were built to support mandatory employee compliance training. They weren’t designed to attract, engage and support voluntary training customers with compelling, adaptive and social learning experiences. So, when an out-of-the-box LMS can’t meet your commercial training objectives, what should you do?

To differentiate themselves and sell more content, higher-end learning providers are turning to custom learning experiences.  But what should you know before you dig in? Edward Daciuk, Principal Learning Strategist at ExtensionEngine and I will map it out for you.


How to Think Outside the Internal Training Box: Extending Your Learning Reach Beyond Employees

Recorded Thursday, June 29


When business decision makers think of training, they typically think of employees first. That’s one reason why so many learning platforms focus on workforce development and compliance. But for most organizations, employee training is only one piece of a much larger learning blueprint.

Business success also depends upon the ability to educate customers, channel partners and others in your value chain. So, how can you leverage learning technology to move beyond an “employees only” mentality? What’s the best way to engage and educate diverse audiences, simultaneously?

I’ll be joined by one of the world’s best LMS experts, Gary Underhill, Sr. Solution Architect at Expertus, as we help you take a deep dive into the uncertain waters of extended enterprise learning.

Join Tom Holz, Blackboard International Senior Director, and me, as we shine a light on corporate LMS issues that are vitally important but too-often neglected in today’s global business environment.
