501 Putting Data to Work

8:15 AM - 9:30 AM Thursday, August 23

Data are constantly evolving; the only way to keep up is to start thinking differently about the data you collect and use in order to make better data-driven decisions. In order to harness the potential of data, we must first seize the opportunities to advance the skillset required to be on top of your game in a data-driven digital world.

In this session, built upon recent research published by The eLearning Guild, you will discover how data are acting as a catalyst for change within the eLearning field. You will learn why the time to start thinking about data is now, not in the future. You will leave this session better understanding the expanding world of data and be able to determine if you are using the right data in your work.
