RE: New Section of Learning Innovations LAB Announced!

2017 Will be a Year of Major Learning Innovation!  Your learners and their managers are looking (and demanding) faster, smaller, more agile, targeted, personalized and affordable learning solutions for their employees and business imperatives.  Learning will shift from a single mandated activity to a wider set of options in a Learning Panorama. We invite you to our unique and popular Learning Innovations LAB.

Learning Innovations will combine learning "apps", user created content, performance focused support, big and small "data" and a combination of enterprise wide and "just for one learner" assets.

You and your colleagues are invited to participate in a unique, hands-on Learning Innovations LAB experience with Elliott Masie in our Learning Center in Saratoga Springs - deeply exploring, experimenting and deploying new technologies and designs for learning.
