In today’s post-pandemic world, yesterday’s L&D strategies are falling short. Cultural changes including a remote/hybrid workplace, the new “metaverse,” and the expectation of knowledge on-demand have forced learning strategies to change. Innovations including virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), microlearning, video-based practice, and machine learning (ML) are getting better results, so you need to be prepared.

If you haven’t been asked already to implement these newer strategies, expect it. The only question is, how will you adapt to this environment and work with these technologies in a practical way?

Join three heavy hitters: John Blackmon, CTO, ELB Learning (formerly eLearning Brothers); Stephen Baer, Chief Creative Officer, The Game Agency (a division of ELB Learning); Geoff Curless, SVP, Sales - Learning Solutions, ELB Learning, all from three different companies acquired by ELB Learning. These speakers with different areas of expertise can share exactly how to handle these technologies and processes with grace and ease!
