There is a big shake up, a paradigm shift in learning architecture. We have moved from course catalogs and compliance to microlearning and personalization. We’ve evolved from e-learning to digital learning in one generation. What does this mean to us not only as learners, but as learning architects?

In this session Conduent Learning’s Leo Blankenship and Barb Farley will take you through this evolution, discuss its impact and provide some hints on unlocking opportunities and possibilities in the new learning architecture. They also show you how to get there from developing a road map to taking the first step.
