Totara LMS will attend Learning Solutions 2014 Conference, a leading event in Orlando, Florida USA on the 19 and 20 March. The event is for training and learning professionals focused on the design, development, management, distribution of technology-based learning, performance support, and blended solutions.

The Learning Solutions Conference features over 100 sessions covering eLearning best practices, case studies, and emerging trends to help create more engaging and effective learning experiences. Co-located with Learning Solutions 2014, Ecosystem 2014 is focused exclusively on learning infrastructure systems and strategies and is designed for professionals who are responsible for managing learning and development and optimizing investments in employee development across their organization.

The Learning Solutions Conference & Expo is an essential resource for thousands of eLearning practitioners who want to expand their skills and knowledge in content creation. The 2014 Edition will continue this track record and enhance the program offerings in the areas of most rapid change: mobile technology, the use of social media and new developments in standards.

At the Ecosystem conference, Totara LMS will be involved in two sessions, the first one will focus on “Exploring the Current and Future of the Learning Management System” (Wednesday, March 19, 2014 04:00 PM - 5:00 PM), with Jonathan Newman Vice President of Product Solutions as a Panelist. The panel will explore the current state of the LMS and how this important technology is evolving to accommodate the expanding needs of organizations. Additionally, the panel will respond to current questions such as: 'Do we base this challenge upon limitations of the LMS technology?' and 'Are organizations not using the existing tools to their full capabilities?'.

And the second session will be hosted by Willem Boom, Vice President Partner Solutions for Totara LMS and Jonathan Newman, Vice President of Product Solutions for Totara LMS on Thursday, March 20, 2014 03:45 PM - 4:45 PM.  This session will give an overview of successful implementations of open-source LMS solutions in corporations.

Participants will hear about actual scenarios that help illustrate how to overcome any questions regarding open-source LMS offerings and how to implement them in an organization. They will examine key considerations in selecting and implementing an open-source LMS solution and learn how open-source functionality compares with that of proprietary solutions.


Totara LMS will be exhibiting at Learning Solutions 2014 – Booth number 307.
