Conor Gilligan, Head of Operations at global e-learning firm Webanywhere Ltd. has joined the community board of Learning Locker, the open source Tin Can / xAPI Learning Record Store.
Conor joins seven other e-learning experts from across the globe, and together they will be responsible for the overall direction of product development at Learning Locker, working in partnership with the technical board, who oversee programming development.
Learning Locker is an open source Learning Record Store - a system which stores records of learning activities. Organisations use this to analyse and store data about the learning undertaken by their employees. This allows a deeper understanding of how people in the organisation approach learning, what they’ve achieved and where the roadbloacks are. This knowledge equips companies to better design learning activities to maximise performance.
Conor commented, “At Webanywhere, we have a real belief in the power of open source e-learning, and as a Moodle and Totara partner, we’re really keen on the new perspectives offered by Tin Can data. I’m looking forward to working with the board at Learning Locker to help shape some of these possibilities into real-world solutions for organisations at all scales.”
