Learning Experience Platform – WRONG

eLearning 24-7

I’ll get right to the point. I totally dislike the term, “learning experience platform” It really makes no sense, because anything and everything we do, can turn into a learning experience. Secondly, it does a major disservice to any platform that is called by that name. Allow me to elaborate.
