Learning Architect - Digital Technologies
American Tire Distributors (ATD)

As corporate organizations move to more “tribal” learning, there is a huge opportunity for learners to contribute learning assets via mobile devices. This includes geo-tagged images, videos, text, and audio recordings. By allowing learners to contribute and share knowledge, there is a sense of ownership and inclusion in the process of knowledge transfer. But how do we organize all these assets, and should they be included in today’s current learning-management system (LMS) architecture? Mobile-learning-asset ingestion goes beyond the capabilities of today’s LMS and begins to take on the characteristics of a digital asset management system. How do we combine a learning management system and a learner-driven digital asset management system? How can learners catalog content quickly and efficiently? What is the value proposition of having such a system in place, and what is the cost of implementation?

Participants in this session will learn about managing digital assets created by mobile devices, metadata, tagging, and asset search and retrieval for learning purposes. You’ll also discover the cost and benefit of having such a system. You’ll explore in detail what is required for learner content creation and management.

In this session, you will learn:

  • What a digital asset management (DAM) system is
  • Why metadata is important
  • How to empower employees to create learning content
  • How to search and retrieve media assets for training
  • How the combination of a DAM and LMS would work today
