The Learning Technologies 2018 expo took place last week at the Olympia London and lived up to its reputation as Europe’s leading showcase of eLearning and blended learning solutions.
Over the course of the two-day event, Learning and Development (L&D) professionals came together to share best practices, discover new trends, hear presentations and visit industry professionals.
There was plenty to get excited about at this year’s conference, including our own stand. NetDimensions’ award-winning LMS was exhibited at the event and we were excited to speak to so many attendees about our connected learning solutions.
The importance of API and interconnectivity
One noticeable trend this year was just how important a strong set of API/open connectors is to learning professionals when they choose a new LMS.
L&D managers need solutions which can slot into their current Human Resources ecosystem but provide a much richer and deeper learner and manager experience, as well as greater efficiencies on the admin side. NetDimensions makes it easy to connect multiple systems together using API/connectors. How we do that and why it’s so important was the subject of our seminar talk, “Fool proof ways to implement learning ecosystems”, hosted by Bill Mastin, SVP at NetDimensions, and Rose Benedicks, Strategic Consulting Lead at our sister company LEO Learning. In case you missed it, here’s a link to the slides from the presentation.
