The Role of IT in an Organization

As IT people we can get so bogged down in the day to day issues that we lose track of why we are even trying to solve them. Organizations can unfortunately see IT as a money drain and lose site of the possible advantages. This is wasting a valuable resource. We need to take a step back and talk about how to change IT from a reactionary service department into a proactive strategic partner.

Unpacking the broad and diverse world of e-learning options

Does your organization have an interest in pursuing some kind of e-learning technology? Are they coming to you for advice or asking you to implement something? Today there is much talk about “e-learning” and many options out there competing for your attention. This workshop will orient you to the breadth of variants that all fall under the category e-learning — online courses, webinars, on-demand video, virtual classroom, podcasts, wikis, independent study courses, micro-learning, mobile apps — and then explore what each is particularly capable of and how to assemble a unique combination of learning options for your unique community of learners. Whether you are trying to bring together peers that are geographically spread out or trying to make learning available right at the moment of need, there may be a tool out there that can deliver.
