Modern Learning Platforms: The LMS Evolves
Friday 23rd March 2018, 12 noon till 1.00pm (GMT)
With John Curran, Director and Learning Architect at Designed for Learning and former ELN Chair.
If there’s one thing that is almost universally disliked in the e-learning business it has to be the LMS.
In the past most LMSs were designed as ‘back-office’ systems - they focused on gatekeeping, tracking and reporting. Frustratingly for those of us championing the uptake of e-learning the user interface and user experience was low down on the list of priorities. But in the past few years things have changed substantially. There is now a vast range of ‘modern LMSs’ that not only vastly improve the user experience but also make the design and development of online courses much more straightforward.
In this webinar we’ll look at the range of learning platforms now available and explore the pros and cons of different platforms from the perspective of effective learning design. We’ll also look at how modern learning platforms incorporate approaches such as gamification, spaced learning and performance support.
If you are currently considering a new LMS this webinar will help guide your thinking. If you are a learning designer then this webinar will help you explore what’s possible beyond the conventional SCORM module!
Yes…LMSs really can be fun!

eLN webinar: Dreaming and Building your Future Learning Ecosystem,
Friday 26th April 2018, 12 noon till 1.00pm (BST)
With Michael Hruska
Learning ‘ecosystems’ are a place where technology, people, process, analytics and experiences align with business strategy. In a place where connectivity just continues to increase along with technology choices beyond the traditional LMS, we as L&D professionals need tools to tame the complexity and show business impact.
In this members' webinar, Mike Hruska will define the learning ecosystem, unpack it into discrete elements, and provide design approaches for pilots and long term strategy. Additionally, we will cover what the Experience API (xAPI) is, what is going on with emerging technology in this space, and how you might approach xAPI as part of the solutions for your learning ecosystem.
Based in the US, Mike is a technologist with experiences spanning across standards, emerging technologies, learning and science. His experience spans the continuum between advanced research on adaptive learning ecosystems and solution/product design. He does research, strategy, design and makes learning ecosystem solutions and product.You need to be an Associate or Member to register for this webinar. Sign-up or login here.
