- The Hangout model has proven effective for a range of learning topics; - TIS believes that this model will bridge the gap between traditional classroom delivery and digital-based learning.

Mumbai, February 23, 2015: Tata Interactive Systems (TIS), a global provider of learning solutions, will host a live workshop using Google Hangout that showcases a blended but personalised learning experience. This follows the ‘standing room only’ success of Joanna Kori’s blended learning seminar at Learning Technologies show in January 2015. 58 volunteers will experience the mechanics of ‘More than a Hangout’ workshop starting on February 25th 2015.

TIS will use Google applications to explore contemporary learning models and complete a pre-workshop task. This will be followed by an activity-based Hangout for peer-to-peer exploration of these models. Joanna Kori, Senior Learning Consultant, TIS, cites, “We are overwhelmed with the response to join the workshop. We now look forward to demonstrating how to maximise these applications using a topic close to the heart of learning professionals.”

Will Chadwick, Vice President – UK, TIS, adds, “It was pleasing to be ranked as the only Potential Leader in Elearnity’s 9-box grid. This is an example of the types of thought leadership content we have created for our clients. The Hangout model has now been proven for a range of topics and we believe it bridges the gap between traditional classroom delivery and digital-based learning.”

The post-workshop activity will focus on designing reflective tasks and encouraging peer-to-peer feedback via Google Plus community.
