With the proliferation of learning delivery innovations throughout organizations it can often be difficult to for cohesion of all the independent interventions. If this complexity creates challenges for your or your company come join our session. We will provide first-hand experience and recommendations in how to have all of these independent learning delivery innovations work seamlessly and aligned to common human performance outcomes.

We kicked off this session by exploring I-Corps innovation management and analysis techniques to determine what new innovations might work best together to produce the desired learning outcomes – from messaging to mobile apps to simulation, games, virtual and augmented reality or even advanced artificial intelligence. Understanding how to structure and deliver effective learning programs using these advanced tools in your online learning offerings is what a structured transmedia framework can offer you. Having sensible, practical innovation that accomplishes its goals without breaking the budget is what we all want.

Come hear about leading edge examples from Google, Johnson & Johnson, Department of Defense, Lowes and many others that show that this is more than just a theory, but a practical way to use lean startup practices to produce your next successful learning project.
