DETAILS:
An effective online learning strategy is necessary for government agencies to ensure employees continually improve their skills and gain new knowledge. Too often agencies invest significant time, money and effort in developing e-learning solutions only to find that employees don't use the solution or value the content. For online learning to be successful, organizations must challenge the status quo of standardized training and embrace the new normal of individualized learning.

Deanna Grady, lynda.com training solutions manager for State and Local Government, will host a complimentary webinar that will discuss how the online learning leader creates training content and programs that resonate across age groups and backgrounds and inspire users to want to learn. The webinar will also detail the education evolution currently transforming academia and how it applies to learning and development within government agencies. Additionally, attendees will learn the reasons that many e-learning implementations fail, how video and mobile technology are changing the way people learn, and how to discover the e-learning content that learners truly want and need.

"Stop Training. Start Learning: Online Content That Government Learners Love" is designed for learning and development, human resources, training and talent management professionals, as well as anyone responsible for improving performance within a government agency who wishes to discover how they can provide their teams with effective learning solutions that drive engagement and continuous development.
