Corporate Learning Analytics in Practice [Introduction]

By Andrew Downes | Jan 08, 2019

During the summer of 2018, we conducted a Learning Analytics Research Study to research how our clients are actually implementing these analytics. This research aimed to place organizations on the learning analytics triangle as a measure of maturity, and to paint a picture of what this looked like during 2018.* In this blog series, we’ll explore the results from our study and how real people are doing real learning analytics.

What Is a Learning Ecosystem?

By Tim Dickinson | Nov 28, 2018

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.

L&D Spotlight: How Visa & Verizon built learning ecosystems with LMSs

By Andrew Downes | Nov 07, 2018

In our last blog post, we looked at how The Behr Paint Company replaced the LMS when implementing their learning ecosystem. But that’s actually a less common route, as many organizations keep their LMSs playing key roles within their ecosystems. For example, organizations may keep the LMS to manage event bookings, assign compliance training, or keep centrally managed content repositories. In this post, we’ll look at how Visa and Verizon have kept their LMSs as part of their ecosystems.

As you start to consider your learning ecosystem, you’ll need to reflect on the role of the LMS.

How to Develop a Learning Ecosystem Strategy [Guide]

By Tim Dickinson | Aug 29, 2018

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.
