Join me Dec 8 @ ATD Boston Shark Tank: The LMS Edition

Boston Area! Are you swimming in a sea of LMSs? Are the feeding chum to all the vendors out there and the waters have started to churn around you? Want to make some sense of these treacherous seas?

Join me at ATD Boston Shark Tank: The LMS Edition on Dec 8. (I'll be one of the sharks and I promise to make a lot of corny shark references).

December 8, 6 pm
Babson Executive Conference Center

More info and to register.

In case you haven’t heard, ATD-Boston is closing out the year with a big splash and you WILL NOT want to miss this one!  Three of our local sharks will be sinking their teeth into presentations from three very popular LMS vendors -- then you’ll get a chance to wear the shark hat as well.  All this takes place at a brand new venue (Babson College) and at this prestigious institute of higher learning, we promise that you will leave with an excellent education about the world of LMSs.
  • Cammy BeanVP of Learning Design, Kineo eLearning: A premier thought leader in the eLearning industry, frequent presenter at local and national events, and author of the Learning Circuits and Learning Visions blog.
  • Barry RichmanSr Manager of Global Learning Systems, Dunkin Brands:  A veteran in the eLearning industry with a deep background in LMS operations who has most recently helped Dunkin Brands with their deployment of a new LMS for their 100,000+ users.
  • Jean Marrapodi, Illumina Interactive:  Winner of a 2016 eLearning Guild’s Guild Master award and 2014 awards from Brandon Hall and USDLA for best learning team and best learning program, frequent presenter at local and national events, and recent addition to the staff at Illumina Interactive.
You and the sharks will be figuring out a way to attack:
  • Cornerstone on Demand:  An industry leading LMS that has rapidly become one of the most popular learning environments in the world.  Cornerstone is used by almost 30 million people in 191 countries.
  • Grovo:  An “edgy” LMS that focuses on modern learning in today’s workforce by embracing micro-learning and customized packaged content that is delivered in bite-sized chunks.
  •  eLearning Tool LMSs:  LMS environments that are already at your fingertips if you use eLearning development tools from vendors such as Articulate, Adobe, Lectora, and iSpring.  Do they have enough power to meet your needs?  That will be up to you to decide.
