Reimagining Next-Gen Learning with an Open LMS Platform
Support the demands and needs of modern learners with a flexible learning environment.
About this webinar
When: April 15, 2021 @ 2PM EST
Educational technology is evolving rapidly, and nobody knows exactly what the next “new normal” will be. Leaders need to ensure that their learning environment is able to support the demands and needs of modern learners and to be resilient enough to adapt as their needs change.
Platforms designed to break down barriers to learning can enable organizations to innovate, create new experiences, and attract new types of learners.
Join us and hear from James Wiley, principal analyst at Eduventures, about how choosing technology is about business strategy and resiliency as much as it is about the technology and its features. During this webinar, we’ll discuss:
- What an open platform is and how it enables next-generation learning experiences
- Overcoming challenges in adopting and working with open platforms
- How a learning management system (LMS) built as an open platform can serve diverse and changing learner needs
- Examples of innovative organizations leveraging unique capabilities of modern LMSs
