Today's learners face a number of real challenges in finding the appropriate resources and materials that can positively impact their education and provide the necessary tools for ongoing personal and career development. Although individuals seek learner-centric resources that expand their skills when needed, help solve problems and add value, traditional courses and learning methods often prove to be ineffective and fall short of expectations.
During this complimentary webinar, Laurie Burruss, education consultant for lynda.com, will define personalized learning and explain how online video technology can meet the needs of today's learners. Burruss will explore how such solutions foster confidence, improve motivation and encourage productivity in individuals. Attendees will evaluate their current state and future goals and identify a roadmap and resources for achieving those goals.
