Upcoming eLearning Network Events
How should you procure the technologies to support learning in your organisation? There’s a vast array of LMSs, authoring tools and other technologies to choose from: Exe, Ilias, eFront, Moodle, Xerte to name but a few. A day of practical case studies, sharing experiences and your chance to join the debate.
The key questions we expect to be looking at on the day are:
- Are there any examples of open-source software that isn't designed for geeks?
- When is it a good idea to look at open-source software?
- How can we make open-source software work in our organisation?
- Why would you choose software that doesn't come with any support?
- What are the objections your IT department may raise about opensource and how to address them?
This workshop will be useful to:
- In-house L&D staff under cost pressure to get more from learning technologies
- L&D practitioners (both in-house and consultants) who want to offer a wider blend of learning than classic self-paced e-learning
- People who are frustrated that the proprietory softwares they use for learning are not flexible enough/customisable to their needs

Quality interaction is more than bolting together a series of unrelated activities. The ultimate goal is to think holistically and create a seamless immersive experience for an entire course.

In a tough economic climate how can Learning and Development departments maximise their value to the organisation? The answer: focus on improving employee performance and nurturing talent rather than the delivery of courses. It doesn’t matter what your people know, it’s what they can do that matters, and a focus on performance and solving organisational problems aligns L&D to the business. Unfortunately for some, performance support and talent management means your yearly appraisal process and nothing more. To build high performing teams and recruit and retain the best people, there is more to consider.
In this event we will look at how leading organisations approach this challenge, the processes they use and the systems that help them. We’ll explore how L&D can work with HR to ensure their employees have what they need to excel in their jobs when they need it, providing a clear career path and retaining the best people.
