Think Your Training Isn’t “High-Consequence?” You Might be Surprised

Sep 12, 2018   /   by

The term “high-consequence” sounds serious. It brings to mind images of bunkers and intelligence agencies connecting to secure satellites and discussions of state secrets and military operations. There is no doubt that these TV drama-ready situations do exist for conferencing and training. For most organizations though, a greater concern is the high-consequence situations that aren’t […]

Getting workers excited about virtual training can be a challenge on any day of the year. But summer always seems particularly difficult, doesn’t it?

Virtual Training and Web Conferencing Just Wants Your Respect (and Protection)

May 22, 2018   /   by

In some ways, virtual training and web conferencing no longer get the credit they deserve. Around the time MTV was introducing the world to the music video concept (ushering it in fittingly with the Buggles’ “Video Killed the Radio Star”), Compression Labs was set to introduce the world’s first video conferencing system for business.

The other day I walked into a car dealership. I wasn’t quite ready to buy but I wanted to see some of the vehicles that I’ve been checking out online. After talking to the salesperson for a few minutes, he said, “On a hunch, I’d like to show you something that just came in. It’s […]

What Your Learners Really Said

May 9, 2017   /   by

Attention trainers: We talked to your learners. They say they want to learn, but you’re failing to engage them. Okay, maybe we didn’t talk to your learners. But we did survey 550 workers, and chances are your learners are harboring at least some of the same complaints. But before we get to those, consider this: […]

It was about the need for organizations to start taking the matter more seriously. Think about it. What kind of information […]

It’s Time to Start Talking about eLearning Security

Jan 30, 2017   /   by

It’s funny. When I ask people if they ever think about eLearning security, they often come back with the same thing: “You mean security training?” It pretty much answers my question: When it comes to eLearning, security isn’t quite top of mind. And yet, it’s an area where sensitive information is being shared about an […]
