No Code? No Problem! Quick & Easy Approach to Automation & Creating L&D Apps

What if you could turn your ideas into real projects and build tools for automating work without needing to know how to code? Until recently, the only people who could build things on the internet were a few ambitious people who spent months learning to code before publishing even the most basic website. Today, anyone with a little creativity and access to the internet can use GUI-based (no code) tools quickly and easily to build not only websites, but also to create fully functional custom applications without writing any code. What seemed impossible a few years ago is now a reality: drag, drop, and deploy. This session is perfect for those who want to learn how to take advantage of opportunities to adapt and leverage the right technologies at the right time to meet organizational goals.

#NoCode tools allow anyone to create automated workflows between your favorite apps and services to synchronize files, get notifications, collect data, and more. They can boost business productivity to get more done in less time and even create custom apps without needing to write any code. In this session you’ll discover how, with the help of these #NoCode tools, you can develop, integrate, and automate your important L&D processes quickly and easier than ever before.

  34. Creating an Automation – Part 1 Always start with a

    challenge or a problem. What do you want to solve? What problem do I want to fix? Break-down the challenge in smaller steps What steps are there in the process of fixing the problem? A form app and a webinar app What apps do I need for these smaller steps? Check if your existing apps and tools can help you out What apps do I already use/have? Check if your existing apps and tools can be connected Can I connect my apps or do I need an automation tool?
  35. Creating an Automation – Part 2 What event will trigger

    my automation? New submission in our form app What event will my automation perform? Register the person for a webinar What information do I want to move between those apps? Contact’s name and email address
