205 Embracing the Learning Ecosystem: A Journey from LMS to LXP
1:15 PM - 2:15 PM Wednesday, October 23
Management and Strategy
Supporting the diverse learning needs of an organization where time is money can be challenging. The goal of most learning organizations is to drive content and "foot traffic" into their LMS. Today, gains in technology offer more efficient methods to complete tasks. Corporate learning organizations need to examine their goals and determine the best way to support employees in an era of shorter duration learning content, mobile-friendly options, and a workforce that takes ownership for their own learning. During this session, participants will follow one company's journey from LMS to LXP. Topics covered will include the process of finding, implementing, and launching a learning experience platform.
In this session, you will learn how to evaluate LMS/LXP options, what to include in your RFP, and things to look for when evaluating RFP responses. You’ll learn tips for setting up a solid project team structure, and how to communicate with internal and external stakeholders during implementation. Finally, you’ll learn how to make the switch and manage the change from a traditional LMS to a LXP.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to evaluate the need for a new learning platform
- What to include in your RFP, and things to look for when valuating responses from vendors
- Suggested ideas for creating and communicating with a project team
- Tips for managing the change from LMS to LXP
