Webinar Q & A | Reaching Learners at the Point of Need With iBeacons

June 30, 2015 by
Posted in Technology

Since the advent of mobile computing, learners are able to access training and performance support materials virtually anywhere at any time. However, it typically remains the responsibility of learners to proactively search for learning and determine when they need it.

MOOCs

Do you remember when companies had telex machines? When you had to print out black and white charts and tables on acetate to stick on an overhead projector? Yeah, back in the days when business suits had flared trousers and all telephones were wired to the wall?

The corporate world has come a long way since then. But one vestige of yesteryear still clings on: the old-school performance management process. You know the one—where each manager gets to sit down, one by one, with his or her direct reports and hand them a grade-card for the year. Jane scored four out of five, but Bob scored a two. “We are really going to have to do something about Bob this year,” thinks the manager… Read the rest of this entry »
