The modern workforce is now more connected than ever. This blog explores ways to maximize the potential of today’s hyper-connected learners.
The sense of being constantly connected, or ‘plugged-in’, is more and more familiar to us. From email and messaging apps to social media and Alexa, it’s rare to feel completely disconnected from people or technology, without taking drastic measures.
The rise of hyperconnectivity is sometimes perceived as one of the more negative aspects of modern culture. Our depleted attention spans are an often-cited casualty of the rise in smartphone and Internet use (although this is contentious).
At NextSteps, NetDimensions’ global users conference, we heard from Amar Dhaliwhal, Senior Vice-President of Marketing and Product at leading Augmented Reality platform company, Atheer. He gave us a glimpse into the (near) future of AR for training.
Amar spoke compellingly on the potential of augmented reality (AR) to transform how training is delivered, and shared his insights on best practice use of AR for training.
How can a strong talent development strategy help prepare your organization for the future? Find out in this blog based on LinkedIn’s 2018 Workplace Learning Report.
LinkedIn’s 2018 Workplace Learning Report paints an interesting picture of the challenges organizations face to maximize the potential of their workforce. We take a look at the key insights and what they could mean for your talent development strategy.
The report surveyed 4,000 professionals made up of 1,200 L&D or HR professionals, 400 people managers, 200 executives, and 2,200 learners from North America, Europe, and Asia.
We often hear from L&D teams who are not yet leveraging LMS features that could transform the way they work and improve the learning experience for their employees. In this blog, we look at some LMS features you need for effective learning management.
If you currently have an LMS, how many of its various tools and features do you use on a regular basis?
If you’re looking to purchase an LMS, do you know which tools and features could make a real difference on your team’s day-to-day work?
An LMS is a big investment, and it needs to work for you. An LMS that doesn’t create admin efficiencies, or improve compliance and learner engagement will not deliver significant ROI for your organization.
From our experience advising many leading organizations, we’ve put together a list of ten LMS features that deliver great benefits. In the rest of this blog, we’re going to share a few of our favorites.
The GDPR comes into effect on May 25 2018. Here at NetDimensions, we’re busy getting ready to meet GDPR LMS requirements. But how ready are you?
If you’re reading this, then you probably know that the GDPR is a major update to European data protection laws. The GDPR will affect businesses around the world given its very wide reach and applicability. It regulates when both ‘data controllers’ and ‘data processors’ are allowed to process personal data, and which safeguards need to apply to such processing.
Many organizations impacted by the GDPR will already have their preparations well underway, but reports suggest many others are still unsure what steps to take to become compliant.
As an L&D professional, it’s critical to analyze and capture your organization’s approach to learner data management and storage. You should also review your LMS to identify the features and functionality that will help you meet GDPR LMS requirements.
