If you look on the internet, a strategy is a very long and extensive document with specific headers for whatever type it might be (marketing for example) and always seems to require a lot of pages, even if you use a template.

Making the best use of the Learning Management System

Learning Wire

Indicators are the only way of getting the information you need to define ways of improving the use and efficiency of an LMS platform. Teasers, posters, newsletters, and even mini‐movies are effective ways of communicating information about your project internally. But today you can integrate LMS platforms with Intranets (for example, Sharepoint) and corporate social networks (for example, Yammer or Jive), so that training comes to learners – rather than the other way round – and forms part of their day‐to‐day lives.

What You Need To Know About Corporate Gamification of Learning

eLearningMind

Microlearning is meant to be a short-form version of information that is super portable and quick to digest.
