GS03 KEYNOTE: The Great Debate: Where Is eLearning Headed?

11:15 AM - 12:30 PM Friday, June 10

Lone Star A-E

Trends are easy to identify. They’re present, and there’s evidence to show how popular they are. Identifying which trends will fizzle and which ones will transform the future is a much more difficult task.

In this closing session, you will join four industry experts as they debate the current and future state of learning and technology. You will hear different and unique opinions and learn as each perspective is challenged and defended. The conflicting opinions shared will open your mind to the possibilities posed by the trends we need to focus on and help you build the context around what works and what doesn’t in your own organization.
