July 3rd: Cool Things You Can Do With a Learning Management System (That You Probably Haven’t Thought Of)

June 5, 2013 2 comments

I’ll be presenting a new Webinar for HR.com on July 3rd titled “Cool Things You Can Do With a Learning Management System (That You Probably Haven’t Thought Of).”

Description:

Learning management systems are designed to enrol learners into courses and learning events and track their progress. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Some systems have become so powerful and feature rich that they can be used to do much more, allowing you to leverage learning management system technology to meet other business needs.

Join me, Richard Nantel. VP, Enterprise Learning Solutions at Blatant Media, to examine:

  • How to use a learning management system as a communication platform
  • How to use a learning management system to manage contests
  • Using a learning management system as a curator to the Web’s best content
  • How to use a learning management system for team problem solving and collaboration
  • How to use a learning management system for document management
  • Using a learning management system as an intranet
  • How to use a learning management system to manage the onboarding of new employees
  • How to use surveys to gather information about your learners
  • How to use a learning management system for market research
  • And much, much more

This fast-paced presentation won’t bore you with a bunch of PowerPoint slides. Instead, we’ll focus on hands-on demonstrations of ways a learning management system can be used to do more than just deliver courses and track learner progress.

I hope you’ll join me and share your ideas.
