Trends in Training: 2014 - Revisited in 2017

Posted by ilta on 28th April 2017

In April 2014, members of ILTA's user support volunteer team recorded a podcast on some common trends in training at that time. These topics continue to be widely discussed, so we take another look to see how (or if) our thoughts have changed since then. We cover:

  • The modern trainer
  • Performance support
  • Ways to support informal learning
  • Mobile learning
  • Gamification

In the next couple of months, we'll be recording a 2017 Trends in Training podcast to tackle several new topics, so be on the lookout for that, too.

Learning Management System Deep Dive Series - Reporting

Posted by ilta on 20th March 2017

Reporting is one of the most important and sometimes frustrating features of a LMS. Because firms have different needs, it can sometimes be difficult to get exactly what you need. Even with the data in hand, it may require skilled Excel manipulation. In this podcast, your ILTA panelists share great ideas and insights on how they are using reporting and getting at the data they need. We even touch on connecting the dots between your LMS data and actual performance data.
