Most learning solutions today fail to meet employees where they are in their learning journey. Cognitive overload while in training, knowledge and skill gaps in the moment of need, and information access issues prevent employees and teams from performing at their very best. Each of these has a major impact on productivity. The solution? Contextualized learning provides content at the moment of need, in the space where it is needed most.

In this session, you will learn about beacon-based learning solutions that support just-in-time, in-the-space learning. You will see how this approach is flexible, customizable, trackable, and doesn’t require an intense technology implementation cycle. Learn how beacon technology puts learning in your employees’ hands, enabling on-the-spot performance support and a flexible solution that is easily adaptable to changes in the business.

In this session, you will learn:

  • About beacon-based mLearning solutions
  • How beacon technology can be used to contextualize learning

  • To correlate beacon technology to potential opportunities in your environment
