Design a New World of Learning with Innovative Digital Tools

Digital technology is fundamental in supporting different approaches to workplace learning. Digital modalities have transformed the methodology for facilitating training, altering current practices in learning and development (L&D). Organizations that are not already seeking digital tools to design practical L&D training are falling behind. Keeping pace with the accelerated rate of change in the work dynamic requires learning leaders to adopt and apply new ways of thinking.

In this session, Mike Taylor, an expert learning consultant, and Karl G Richter, founder and chief executive officer of eLearning Blends, will share innovative digital tools to keep your organization ahead of the learning curve. They will share new developments in digital tools and platforms, such as synchronous and asynchronous learning, and innovative technologies for instructional design. They will challenge you to rethink the traditional view of learning in the workplace. You will walk away with the gained insight to implement digital tools to your organization’s L&D program.

In this session, you will learn:

» Innovative artificial intelligence (AI) enabled tools that can help create better learning content at a faster rate.
» Digital tools utilized in other fields that L&D leaders can leverage for optimal learning design.
» No-code development options for designing custom learning apps for your organization.
» Key methodologies for connecting different digital tools to form an effective learning ecosystem.
