Online and e-Learning Conference

Developing Skills Remotely | Enhancing Experiences | Improving Performance

The move towards online learning was greatly accelerated with advent of Covid. But while this sudden shift was challenging for learning leaders, the reality is online learning is here to stay.

Virtual learning offers a low-cost and effective way to instantaneously upskill entire teams globally. But it’s not enough to just offer learning in a virtual format. It’s essential to ensure your online learning programmes are fully engaging and effective too.

A one-size-fits-all approach is simply ineffective.

Learning solutions need to be customised to suit each learner’s situational need and create an virtual environment where learners can immerse themselves whenever and wherever they choose. Organisations need to move away from stiff, prescriptive learning, to learning where the learner is the protagonist and takes accountability for their own learning paths and upskilling.

The challenge is this:

How do organisations offer learners flexible, digital content that keeps them engaged, helps them retain knowledge and improve performance, whilst minimising digital fatigue and distraction (and keeping learning costs low)?

Join us 25 and 26 August at the Online and eLearning Summit and find out!

This two-day, virtual summit will update you on the latest trends and developments in digital learning. You’ll be exposed to local and international case studies, interactive discussions and the latest technology releases!

This event will help you build your professional network, unlock opportunities and enhance your professional capabilities to develop the next generation of talent in your organisation.

Join us to be inspired, grow your network and return to work a better-informed digital learning professional in 2021!
