BACK TO TOP

The evolution of the modern workforce continues to forge ahead at a rapid speed.

Even before the pandemic, the corporate world was becoming more and more virtual every year, and the need for flexible and convenient online training solutions has become essential for almost every organization in any industry.  

Now that many of us have spent more than a year working, communicating and learning together remotely (and will likely continue to do so to some extent moving forward), teams are searching for more engaging and sustainable ways to connect and learn collaboratively.
 
Hear from experts from OpenSesame and Open LMS — two leaders in enterprise learning and talent management — for a discussion about how to create active learning experiences that enhance online training content.

Here are some of the sessions you can expect...

GET LEARNING

H5P Creator Workshop
What’s one of the best ways to boost engagement and increase learner retention? Interactive content! Join Open LMS Academy’s team at Connected 2023 for a live workshop deep diving into how you can give your courses a boost with interactive content created in H5P. This workshop will explore a variety of H5P interactive content types and how to utilize them, completion settings, grading, and the content bank to your advantage. With the team’s deep background in learner engagement and digital learning tools, this course will be a unique opportunity to collaborate with well-versed experts who have been in your shoes.

Intro to Site Administration Workshop
This interactive workshop provides site administrators with the information and tools they need to effectively administer their Moodle™ based LMS. Whether you found yourself jumping into an LMS admin role with no training or you are looking to make sure you are maximizing your LMS experience, this workshop is designed to empower administrators to optimize their site, navigate plugin databases, troubleshoot Tier 1 support questions, as well as how to make use of site-level settings, roles, and functionalities to keep your site running smoothly. This workshop is ideal for those who hold a client administrator role on a site and full administrators who are new to Moodle™ site administration or seeking to brush up on skills and learn about new admin features.

March 1 at 1:15pm
This live panel discussion will explore where the future of eLearning is going. Topics will include the latest in EdTech, how organizations are innovating, which trends are fads and which are here to stay, and more! This panel will get you to reflect on where the eLearning space is going and get inspired to take your LMS environment to the next level.

March 2nd at 9:30am
This live panel discussion will dive into how higher education institutions, including traditional universities and community colleges, and corporate and nonprofit organizations can use eLearning to achieve better outcomes and can help close the “skills gap”. Topics will include how institutions and organizations can learn from one another; how students can be better prepared for the next stage of their careers after their education; eLearning technology is changing both education and corporate spaces; and more.

What is on the horizon in the eLearning space? 

How can eLearning drive better alignment between higher education institutions and corporate organizations?

Ungrading
Ungrading has caught a lot of buzz in the education and training space recently, but it is commonly misunderstood or seen as an all-or-nothing approach to evaluating learners. Join this session to explore how you can pull from upgrading strategies and techniques to make your courses more impactful for your learners while incorporating effective knowledge checks that go beyond the standard examination strategy.

Adult Learning Theory
You’ve probably heard of pedagogy, but have you heard of andragogy? Andragogy, the theory of teaching adults, focuses heavily on embracing autonomy and individual experiences to provide effective learning experiences. Join this session to explore how you can use Adult Learning Theory to help you power an effective training and learning program at your business or institution.

Cultivating a Culture of Learning
Requiring learning for your team has benefits, but if learning isn’t a part of your organizational culture and strategy, you are likely missing out on the majority of the benefits you could see from the training courses your team is putting time and energy into creating and completing. Join this session to learn how to build a culture of learning within your organization that engages learners and engrains the value of consistent knowledge growth and sharing.
