Have you ever (almost) fallen asleep during a traditional e-learning course? Have you desperately tried to focus and remember 30-90 minutes of digital click-next training, only to realize that most of it was gone immediately after the test?
This agonizing exercise is no longer necessary. Digital learning has evolved and adapted to the way people actually learn, and modern technology now gives us exciting new ways to engage learners and help employees get access to knowledge when they need it. In this workshop, Peter will introduce modern learning principles and discuss how this can solve some of your current training and learning challenges.
