Speaker:
Jodie Bartz – Business Analyst, Mayo Clinic

Traditional teaching and learning has got to go. Today’s employees don’t have time or patience for yesterday’s classes, workshops, and all-day training sessions. What they really want is a way to get the specific information they need, right when they need it. They want it to be easy to find, easy to consume, and easy to use right away. That’s why forward-thinking companies are turning to micro-learning—it’s cheaper, more efficient, and ultimately more effective.

The Mayo Clinic needs to keep thousands of employees and patients across multiple facilities up-to-date on the latest research, treatment plans, and advice in a field that can change daily. Whether it’s a doctor looking to brush up on the details of a procedure or a patient who needs to understand their follow-up plan, the Mayo Clinic’s audience has one thing in common. They don’t have time to sift through hours of materials to find the info they need, and they can’t wait for some workshop a week or a month later. They need exactly the right information, right now. See how the Mayo Clinic has perfected micro-learning. Why does it work so well? What are tips for creating and managing so many pieces of content? Get real examples of how micro-learning is being used today and learn how you can make micro learning work for your employees.

Over the years, we’ve seen the importance of accessibility growing. This is not surprising. Today, over 1 billion people worldwide have a disability, and there is also a growing business case of creating accessible websites. Studies show that accessible websites have better search results. As accessible video becomes an increasingly important part of meeting accessibility regulations, organizations are turning from a tactical to a strategic approach to making sure they meet the necessary guidelines. In our own accessibility journey, we’ve come to acknowledge the power and responsibility to make sure that everyone has access to the products we create.

Designing for Accessibility

3:00pm-3:30pm

Cross-track with Enterprise Learning track.

Over the years, we’ve seen the importance of accessibility growing. This is not surprising. Today, over 1 billion people worldwide have a disability, and there is also a growing business case of creating accessible websites. Studies show that accessible websites have better search results. As accessible video becomes an increasingly important part of meeting accessibility regulations, organizations are turning from a tactical to a strategic approach to making sure they meet the necessary guidelines. In our own accessibility journey, we’ve come to acknowledge the power and responsibility to make sure that everyone has access to the products we create. In this session, we’re putting Kaltura’s product team in the hot seat for a discussion on what it means to design with accessibility in mind, how to take advantage of Kaltura’s accessibility tools and resources, and what you need to be thinking about to create an accessibility strategy that will serve your users’ needs in the coming years.

Communication and Collaboration

As the Digital Transformation changes the workplace, we’ve gone from a physical, local, 9-to-5 office to a virtual, global, 24/7 experience.

We used to use different tools for live and on-demand, 1-to-1 chats and full broadcasts, intranet/extranet/internet communications. Now, employees increasingly expect tools that will span across use cases, from executive communications to team organization to collaborating with colleagues. Find out how to navigate the shifting video tech landscape. Leverage video and live broadcasts to connect global teams, establish authentic leadership, and organize knowledge management.
