Join us July 18 for “Absorb SMARTLAB: Where Learners Go to Escape Learning Management Systems”


Let’s be honest. A lot of learning management systems (LMS) look like boring enterprise software applications. When a learner logs in, they see their list of learning activities, take a course module or two, and then reward themselves with a trip to where they actually want to spend their time online: Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, etc.

Absorb SMARTLAB provides a revolutionary approach to learning and development. SMARTLAB creates an experience that resembles the sites people enjoy. Chances are, in fact, that your SMARTLAB learners will not even be aware that they are accessing information in an enterprise learning platform.

Although your learners may be oblivious to the fact that they are spending time within a learning management system, your administrators will be able to track easily the improvements in skills, performance, and knowledge of your workforce.

This free Webinar will cover the following:

  • Overview of Absorb SMARTLAB
  • Absorb SMARTLAB demo
  • How organizations uses Absorb SMARTLAB to project their brand and increase product knowledge among employees, and retail sales associates
  • How to assess if Absorb SMARTLAB is right for you

Join us for an overview of Absorb SMARTLAB and find out how you can create a site where learners want to be.
