Learning Technologies 2023 - Digital learning: the hype and reality.

At Learning Technologies 2023, 3-4 May in London, David Wilson and David Perring will preview Fosway's latest research into the digital learning market. 

Don’t believe the hype. Economic pressures and the need to build skills and be agile in a world of hybrid work is pushing L&D to a new level of criticality. But at Learning Technologies, every vendor wants to be your partner or sell you their technology or solution. Cutting through the noise to understand which providers will be the best for you is tough. David Wilson and David Perring of Fosway Group, Europe’s #1 HR Industry Analyst, have the data and insight to you what works and what doesn’t, and who can really deliver what for you. They will be previewing their latest 2023 Digital Learning Realities research.

Learning Technologies Conference Chair, Donald H Taylor, said: “Successfully navigating the thriving landscape of learning technology can be fraught with peril. Which vendors would be your best partners? Which tools and technology should you be looking at in the first place? Providing us with a compass based on decades of insight and deep research are David Wilson and David Perring of Fosway Group, Europe’s #1 HR Industry Analyst. If you want to know your AI from your AR, or your LMS from your LXP, this session tells you everything you need to know.”
