Question: What inspires fear and excitement at the same time?
Answer: The FUTURE!

People have been afraid of the future since time immemorial. Not knowing for sure what tomorrow has in store for us can really be stressful. At the same time, thinking about the future and realizing our present actions can have an influence over it unleashed our creativity like nothing else could.

Fearful and excited, the world of workplace learning is galloping towards the future. Whereas the L&D industry has focused on training activities that provide people the opportunity to learn, the expanding availability of digital information and resources has made learning activities increasingly self-driven.

Mobile learning, bite-sized learning, gamification, blended learning, or video learning used to be things of the future. Now they are either basic requirements of a learning and development program or are becoming such.

Just as the visionaries from DevLearn say it,

The future is here.

New to DevLearn?

The DevLearn Conference and Expo is one of the major events hosted by eLearning Guild, one of the oldest and most trusted community and resources for e-learning professionals. It is the largest learning technologies expo in North America and 2017 marks its 12th edition. It will be held October 25 – 27 at The Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas, NV.

DevLearn is the place where the future of learning comes alive, putting L&D people at the forefront of what’s happening in the learning industry. The conversations that happen here are shaping what’s next for learning.

That’s no wonder, since the people attending the event include Chief Learning Officers, Training Directors and Managers, Social Learning Managers, Learning Systems Analysts, LMS/LCMS Administrators, Training Specialists, Instructional Designers, and anyone looking to expand the use of learning technologies in their organization to ensure maximum impact with their training and development efforts.

The Expo Hall will gather together, besides the aforementioned attendees, more than 120 leading industry suppliers of learning technologies, tools, products, and services to help you discover what’s possible today and prepare for the L&D world of tomorrow.
