Lance Dublin

If You Build They Won’t Necessarily Come: What it Takes to Engage Learners & Organizations

It is truly a myth that ‘if you build it, they will come’. Developing a great e-learning program is necessary but not sufficient to ensure your success. If you want learners to use the e-learning programs you develop, management to support them, and the organization to embrace them, you need to do more. The key to truly engaging learners and energizing organizations is to put on the hats – and get into the heads - of two key disciplines: consumer marketer and change management. Join Lance Dublin to learn how to apply proven principles and practices from these two disciplines to make sure the great programs you develop are not only used, but also produce the intended results.

Due to operator assisted error, audio will begin a few minutes into the presentation. You can drag the play head forward to "0:04:14" into the presentation, to hear Lance repeat his introduction and begin the presentation with recorded audio active.

Jay Cross

The Real Dirt on Elearning

Described by his wife as the "Jon Stewart of eLearning," Jay Cross will stretch your thinking about any aspect of learning you want to talk about. Our learning conversation may cover the foolishness of blending, what's wrong with the ROI yardstick, how instructional designers can quadruple their pay, the time sickness gripping Western civilization, "Blink learning," or why most of us are so stressed. Jay does not really plan to talk dirty but he cannot speak for his mystery guests, who may or may not be wearing clothes. What topics do you want an outside viewpoint on? Otherwise, we'll have to listen to Jay drone on about gossip from the training conference circuit, speculation on the next big thing, and reflections on the checkered history of eLearning (a term Jay originated a little over five years ago.)
