R U Asking the Right Questions to your content provider?
Reviewing and examing the data on your learning system as it relates to usage and engagement by your learners with a 3rd party publisher or provider is just part of the story. The real data, the metrics you want to find out isn't sitting your learning system, it is being captured or should be by your course aggregator or publisher.  Here are the questions you should ask.  This episode is also available as a blog post: https://elearninfo247.com/2022/03/07/r-u-asking-the-right-questions-to-your-content-provider/

In Memory – Corporate Instructional Designers
This episode is also available as a blog post: https://elearninfo247.com/2021/09/20/in-memory-corporate-instructional-designers/ The Podcast goes further in-depth that the blog post, with information you won't see (read) in the post. Instructional designers, e-learning developers in-house at the Corporate level (inc. non-profit, association, business, etc.) are going by the wayside.  The new way to build courses and content? Anyone, without any knowledge around training techniques, adult learning, learning techniques, WIFM, instructional design knowledge can build a course.   Why did this happen?  A perfect storm of eight components hitting at the same time.  Change is here. Are you ready?

Hybrid Workplace – Will ILT become a relic?
This episode is also available as a blog post: https://elearninfo247.com/2021/05/13/hybrid-workplace-will-ilt-become-a-relic/ Hybrid Workplaces will become the standard in the business world. ILT will take a major hit as a result - but not for everyone.  It will remain strong and highly used for frontline workers and those who are blue-collar.  For those white-collar professionals, on the other hand, ILT will become a relic.  And that isn't a bad thing.
