 ATDps: November 2018 Seattle Chapter Meeting

Building a Learning Ecosystem: What You Need to Know


Online and social learning reduces the cost of training, expands the ability to reach a larger event for your content, and increases the speed at which learning experiences can be accessed and offered. However, because of these growing complexities, it’s increasingly important to ensure you’re looking at both how these ever-increasing types of content interconnect and how your learning architecture scales with the business needs of your organization. We will explore social platforms; performance support platforms; eLearning, video, and mobile learning; learning management systems and HRIS system integration.

Learning objectives:

  • How learning paths will push people past compliance and “required” learning
  • How new platforms exist to give employees the opportunity to innovate through enhanced collaboration with peers
  • Allow learners to see new ideas emerge through informal learning activities
  • Explore the link between performance and learning in systems.
  • How using both asynchronous and synchronous content can give additional flexibility to your ecosystem.
  • How to prepare yourself for continued technological evolution.
