T102 - Parsing the Latest Trends in Learning Platforms - Technology, UX, Interoperability and More

Monday, May 03, 2021
Learning Platforms

The myriad learning ecosystem solutions out there today, LMS, LCMS, LXP, performance support, adoption platforms, document asset management systems, and more, all have design heuristics and trends, technology buzzwords, and marketing tactics that can be confusing as you work through your buying decisions. 

How do adaptive platforms work, for example? What do people mean when they say “Netflix of Learning”? How can L&D make their content more “snackable” or more like TikTok? What types of technology are truly new, and what is simply an evolution of something we’ve seen before but with a new name?

Leveraging the presenter’s BUILDS framework, showcased in his most recent book, Shock of the New, Chad Udell will cover the biggest trends shaping our technology buying decisions today. Various ecosystem platform types, use cases, and emerging technologies will be explored.

Adaptive learning, recommendation engines, augmented reality,  self-regulated learning, push vs. pull content distribution, and more will be discussed. Expect a lively discussion and walk away with a reusable rubric you can use to determine if a technology is right for you and your audience.

In this session, you will learn:

  • The top trends driving innovation in learning platforms today
  • How to make sense of the buzzwords currently making the rounds
  • What trends really can affect your learner’s experience and the overall effectiveness of your key initiatives
