The Business of Learning Conference

Web Courseworks will be exhibiting and presenting a demo at this year’s Tagoras Learning Technology Design (LTD) virtual conference. LTD is a conference designed to help anyone in the business of learning to create lifelong education initiatives through learner engagement and effective use of learning technology.

The conference will be held from March 1st– March 3rd. During the conference, attendees will have a chance to “visit” the exhibitors virtual booths, as well as chat with the exhibitors at certain times throughout the event. The first two days will be dedicated to presentations and exhibit times, where as the third day will be focused on demonstrations from the exhibitors on their technology platforms.

The conference schedule was created to have two presentations at each time, which will give the attendees options to learn about which session better suits their interests or learning needs. The presentation topics vary from gamification and microlearning, to practical pricing and  making virtual conferences successful. The presentations are geared to provide marketing and technology strategies for associations to help develop or grow their current education initiatives. The Tagoras duo, Jeff Cobb and Celisa Steele, will both facilitate and present several sessions during the conference. Other presentations will be delivered from subject matter experts in the business of learning, and education leaders in associations who will share their current organization’s education initiatives.

The goal of the LTD conference is to bring together associations and professional development organizations that have access to limited resources on learning technology in their industry, due to the majority of information in eLearning being focused on higher education and corporate training technology. Tagoras LTD focuses solely on the niche industry of Learning Businesses, in order to fill the gap of information in the learning industry.

Tagoras also provides other great resources and research for learning businesses and associations. One of their most recent publications is on the newly developed Learning Business Maturity Model (LBMM). The model highlights four different stages a learning business will move through as they grow and mature. It is a helpful model for associations and other professional development providers to gauge their current status, and to visualize their future goals. By understanding where you are now, and where you would like to be in the future, the LBMM enables you to define the strategy and technologies that can transition you from “now” to “next.”

Web Courseworks will be delivering a demo March 3, from 2:00-2:20pm EST on how our LMS, CourseStage offers features for both the “now” and “next” in your eLearning journey.
