2:15 PM - 3:00 PM Thursday, October 24
Expo Hall: Emerging Tech Stage
LXP, LMS, LRS, bots and more … the complexity of next generation learning technology is growing. Learning Pool is here to make life simple. This session will present a simple architecture into which you can categorize learning technology and present a seamless, simple way to bring all of the elements of a “next generation” learning ecosystem to life.
In this session we will present a simple method for architecting your learning technology ecosystem and showcase how, using mostly open source technology, Learning Pool has created a seamless set of platforms and tools to create a next generation learning experience.
We will explore the LMS vs LXP debate, seeking to understand whether the technologies should be complementary or competitive, and look at options for integrating content from multiple sources and many providers.
We will showcase some best practice examples of “learning in the flow” of work, as well as advanced analytics capabilities to help understand how your users are interacting with your ecosystem.
In this session, you will learn:
- The 3-layer architecture principle
- How LXPs, LMS, LRS and content providers can work together
- Case examples of companies making the “ecosystem” concept work
- How bots, nudges, and smart campaigns form part of the mix
