Workforce training is widely recognised as an important force driving business performance. In recent years more and more organisations have shown interest in making the shift from instructor-led to electronic learning, because of its time and cost efficiency and flexible way of getting knowledge across to the targeted people.

Recent trends have shown some exiting developments in eLearning technology with the introduction and development of social networking tools, mLearning technology and the adoption of virtual worlds in training programs.

However, there is a still lack of knowledge about the capabilities of these new eLearning technologies. Organisations also face numerous pitfalls in the instructional design stage and implementation of eLearning solutions and content. Accessible systems that have educative and engaging content for the learner are difficult to find and develop. Due to lack of insight into the possibilities and knowledge of implementation war-stories, many organisations are therefore weary to adopt eLearning technologies.

This conference focuses on the range of eLearning tools and technologies available and will allow you to hear practical case studies and learn from professionals on the following areas:

Overcoming objections to adopting eLearning technologies

Deploying an instructional design approach in developing eLearning systems and content

Designing and implementing user-centred, engaging and accessible eLearning solutions

Getting people to use the technology

Using Web 2.0, mLearning, podcasting and virtual world technologies for learning and development

Benchmarking your organisation’s eLearning efforts against other organisations
