I regularly speak with organizations about measuring the effectiveness of training. And I’ve noticed a common challenge among L&D teams—learning evaluation is difficult. But it doesn’t have to be. In this post we'll explore how asking one question can not only uncover gaps in your training, but also surface how to align your training in a more measurable way.Read More >

And one way learning platforms are scaling learning is by using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning in learning technology via content recommendations and personalized learning. But let’s be clear, I’m not here to talk about the “Netflix of Learning.”
Rather, by understanding how AI seeks to use algorithmic software solutions to recreate processes similar to those of a human brain, we can begin to understand how enterprise learning and development can evolve from these concepts.Read More >
Whether it's navigating a new town, train system, or even a shopping mall, most of us have used maps to pinpoint our location, examine routes to our intended destinations, and see what to expect along the way. And the same can be said for mapping out your learning ecosystem—because having a map is critical if you want to truly understand how and where your learners are receiving information.Read More >
Designing and building new learning ecosystems can seem intimidating at first blush. Where do I start? Which key components should I consider? What’s my strategy? Answering everything on your own makes a challenging, but gratifying, task much harder. That’s why it’s important to make this process a team effort, involving the most important stakeholders to help you along the way. In that vain, we’ve invited Danny Abdo, vice president of solutions engineering at our partner, Degreed, to help provide some insight into how to strategically plan for and design a new learning ecosystem.Read More >
So far, we’ve established an overview of modern learning ecosystems and how you can identify them across your different learning programs. Now, it’s time to explore how changes to different elements of an ecosystem can impact not only learning experiences, but also other elements in the ecosystem.Read More >
Everyone seems to be talking about the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) right now. But what is it, and how will it affect xAPI and Learning Record Stores? Find out more as we explain everything you need to know about this important set of privacy regulations.Read More >
So far in this blog series, we’ve discussed the importance of data storytelling and covered how to use the STAR model to share your achievements as you might during a job interview. Now, we’ll explore how to draw from Hollywood’s version of storytelling—using the Hero’s Journey framework (departure, initiation, return)—to create an engrossing, transformative story.
