The Learning Solutions Conference and Expo is the event each year that our industry looks towards proven practices that exist within the intersection of learning and technology. LSCon brings together learning professionals from all over the world for a singular purpose: Sharing What Works.
This year we’re providing more space for those conversations to take place, and are excited to introduce a number of exciting new elements being added to the conference.
We’re excited to be hosting two new eLearning Guild Certificate Programs, one exploring Agile Project Management and another covering Storyline360. Each of these pre-conference programs takes place over two days, providing a detailed experience focused on building competence. Our Certificate Programs are fully endorsed by the Guild as meeting the standards of excellence in terms of both content and facilitation.
We are also hosting two new one-day events prior to the start of Learning Solutions. If you are interested in the evolving landscape of learning platforms, you should join us for our popular LMS & Learning Platforms Forum, which will be hosted at Learning Solutions for the first time. If games-based learning is part of your strategy, make sure you plan to join us for the first Serious Games Summit, being brought to Orlando by Designing Digitally.
Last, but certainly not least is Realities360, which will be co-located with Learning Solutions in Orlando this year. Realities360 is the premier event exploring the world of AR & VR for learning, and we’re excited to be bringing that conversation to Orlando in March. Your Learning Solutions 2020 registration will give you access to all Realities360 sessions at no extra charge.
And there’s more to come!
