Learning Technologies 2015 Trends

Last week Learning Technologies took place at the Olympia in London. Learning Technologies sees some of the big names and promising new-comers in the corporate learning sphere showing off their new learning technology, and talking about the methods they use for delivering effective learning in the workplace.
It was my first time at Learning Technologies (LT) after joining Learning Light as a research analyst in October 2014.

Learning Technologies 2015 Review

Learning Technologies is always a busy event and 2015 was no exception. With an expanded Learning Technologies (LTs) presence leading off to the Learning and Skills section you could even say that it was very very busy indeed!
There were several firsts at this event: the debut of Leo, the undoubted new market leader in content forged from Epic and Line; Filtered, a content provider with an interesting angle; and kokm, a new Drupal- based next generation LMS. KPMG appeared in strength this year, while Deloitte did not.

BETT 2015 a review

Another BETT and another review from Learning Light of one of the world’s largest exhibitions for educators.
BETT 2015 was as big and as busy at Dockland Excel centre as ever, but in our view slightly less ostentatious. Stands were if anything a little smaller amongst the big players in the industry, with fewer ‘castles in the sky’.

BETT 2013: What we saw and what was missing….

Learning Technologies 2013
