307 Creating a Plan for your Next Generation Learning Ecosystem

3:00 PM - 4:00 PM PT
Wednesday, October 26

Tracks: Emerging Tech

With talent development being reshaped via emerging technologies, hybrid work environments, and new demands on expected outcomes from training technologies, it’s never been more exciting or difficult to create your learning technology ecosystem. Deciphering new buzzwords and understanding their business impact, charting expectations for user experience, planning for new learning models, ensuring dependencies are in place, and reading the industry signals to verify you are making the right choices, are vital to creating a path toward success. Aimed at senior learning management and executives, this session will share insights and reusable templates to help you navigate the new learning ecosystem.

Learning ecosystems have gotten a lot of attention as of late. Not everyone has jumped on board though, and the reasons for this are varied. Complexity of the integration, added purchasing requirements, potential for confusion by learners, and the list goes on. It doesn’t have to be this complicated. You’ll learn the core elements of modern learning ecosystems, what problems they solve, and considerations in buying decisions. After laying the groundwork, you’ll see a detailed ecosystem roadmap and roll out plans you can use in your strategies when you return to the office.

In this session, you will learn:

  • What a learning ecosystem offers and see a path to create one for your enterprise
  • How to find value in seeing what key components that need to be in place to create a successful learning ecosystem
  • What ecosystem components augment and enhance others for more synergistic learning
  • How to plan an ecosystem rollout

Technology discussed:

Adaptive learning and AI, recommendation engines, web-based content management systems, mobile apps, AR/VR/XR, infrastructure technologies, LMS/LRS, xAPI
