Learning Technologies 2013 conference 'on the horizon'

schedule 26th January 2013 by Virtual College in Virtual College Last updated on 7th July 2016

Business leaders and online learning professionals are readying themselves for next week's Learning Technologies 2013 conference. Taking place at Olympia 2 in London on January 29th and 30th, the event will involve frontrunners in workplace training showcasing their latest developments and this year sees a Learning and Skills exhibition added to the bill. Attendees will be able to explore the offerings of more than 230 exhibitors and take part in over 120 free seminars, as they make their way around two halls packed with the newest technologies, business practices and innovation. The conference is likely to be particularly beneficial to companies that are looking for inspiration when it comes to training their staff online. A number of discussions are set to take place covering the importance of using the internet in this way, including talks on how to receive returns-on-investment via e-learning, creating online workbooks and how to educate employees using mobile devices. It will also give senior executives the chance to find out about training their staff using video, the future of digital education and how they can advance their Learning Management System (LMS). One e-learning provider due to appear at the event is Virtual College, a West Yorkshire-based institution that offers modules in a vast array of workplace practices. Rob Knox, chief executive officer and founder of the facility, is due to deliver a seminar entitled Job Roles, Competencies and Appraisals Don't Have to be Just Once a Year, which will explore how online training systems can establish personal development objectives that can be monitored within specific timescales and how they can remind managers about impending deadlines or overdue targets. He will also speak about the ways in which employees can grade themselves against these competencies using an LMS and set themselves a desired capability level for each skill within a specific job role. The expert said he is delighted to be given the opportunity to share his thoughts and tips about distance learning, adding: "An online LMS, such as Virtual College's Enable system, can really help organisations deliver a regular standardised appraisal process."
