Reflections on the Learning Technologies Conference (#LT18UK)

Patti Shank

First thing: Plan to come to the Learning Technologies conference. Learning from L&D folks from the UK, Europe, and elsewhere gives you a wider view of workplace learning around the world. Although US learning conferences often have some international presence, most of what we discuss relates to what we do in the US and Canada. Globalization has changed learning and work. The conference is a great place to meet, discuss, and learn from others.

May Big Q: Workplace Learning Technology 2015

Clark Quinn

The Learning Circuits Blog Big Question of the Month for May is “What will workplace learning technology look like in 2015?&# This is a tough question for me, because I tend to see what could be the workplace tech if we really took advantage of the opportunities. Consequently, my predictions tend to be optimistic, as the real world has a way of not moving near as fast as one could wish. Virtual worlds will also be more prevalent, though not ubiquitous.

Special Report: Learning Technology

CLO Magazine

Technophobes would have us believe that technology is bringing about the end of the world one click at a time. OK, that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but there is some fear — even in the most adaptive of us — that whispers that technology in its various seemingly ubiquitous forms may one day replace humans. Some artificial intelligence, machine learning and virtual reality innovations, however, beg to differ. That means the learning leader’s role will change.

Virtual Reality: The Game-Changing Educational Technology

CommLab India

Virtual Reality (VR) – It is no exaggeration to say that this is one of the hottest trends in the world of educational technology. Why are organizations going for learning applications based on VR? How does this technology help firms help train their people better? From these definitions, we can conclude that VR is a technology which produces an artificial three-dimensional environment that learners can interact with using special equipment.

Virtual reality and augmented reality: overhyped or new industry standard?

CLO Magazine

When you hear the words “virtual reality,” do you feel like you’re in a sci-fi film? I posit that learning and development professionals should consider AR and VR training because they can be incredibly effective. In fact, I predict that this technology will eventually become as ubiquitous in training as video. Let’s take a look at how VR will affect the 70:20:10 model of learning. We know that classroom and e-learning modules only account for 10 percent of learning.
