301 How Data Can Enable Learning Personalization

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM Wednesday, November 8

Learning personalization is a term that many in the L&D field are interested in. The problem is that, even if you are sick of the "one size fits all" approach to learning, you may not know where to start to work toward a more individualized approach. The engines that drive learning personalization feed on data, and that requires an organizational commitment and ability to generate that data, store it, and make it available.

This session will cover several approaches to leveraging data for learning personalization. You will explore simple techniques you can apply right now within a single authoring tool or your existing LMS, full-scale integration of training, HR and business data, and things that fall in between. These approaches will serve as a backdrop to a set of questions that you can use to assess your organizational readiness for personalization and what your next steps might be.
