2018 E-Learning & Training Conferences

LearnDash

Get out your calendars because it is time to start saving some dates! Every year there are a number of really great e-learning and training conferences taking place across the United States. If you haven’t been to one then make it a resolution to attend an event that matches your interests. Not only will you learn something but you will come away from the event with a stronger network and renewed enthusiasm for your craft! Some of these events do come with a pricier admission fee.

Reflections on 2017

Clark Quinn

The end of the calendar year, although arbitrary, becomes a time for reflection. I looked back at my calendar to see what I’d done this past year, and it was an interesting review. Places I’ve been and things I’ve done point to some common themes. Such are the nature of reflections. One of the things I did was speak at a number of events. My messages have been pretty consistent along two core themes: doing learning better, and going beyond the course.

2018 Trajectories

Clark Quinn

Given my reflections on the past year, it’s worth thinking about the implications. What trajectories can we expect if the trends are extended? These are not predictions (as has been said, “never predict anything, particularly the future”). Instead, these are musings, and perhaps wishes for what could (even should ) occur. I mentioned an interest in AR and VR. I think these are definitely on the upswing.
