What’s new and exciting in the world of learning technology? What has practical application and which tools are little more than just shiny toys?
“This perennially popular session gets beyond the hype to bring us a carefully curated view of just which technologies L&D should be paying attention to and how they are going to have a big impact on workplace learning in the future. In addition this year we explore some key trends in vendor offerings - and how they affect you,” points out Donald H Taylor, Conference Chair, Learning Technologies.
AI, AR, VR…we hear so much about new technologies and how they might be applied in learning.
