Moderator: 
Ofer Luft – Senior Director, Platform Solutions, Kaltura

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.

Enterprise Learning

Video has played a major role in enterprise learning for a while, but today’s learners have higher expectations, greater needs, and far less time than ever before. How can L&D teams determine the right learning strategy for them and the role of video in it? How can they ensure their employees have access to all the information they need when they need it? Find out how your peers from enterprise learning teams continuously innovate and leverage big video in the service of higher engagement. Explore the latest trends in enterprise learning across industries, from interactivity to micro-learning. Take a look at the role of video in creating experience-rich learning environments in which video content, technology, and analytics are the key drivers in the design of personal learning experiences.

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. Video helps connect people in a way that’s still personal and effective. But today’s communications channels are converging. 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. See how other organizations like yours are driving effective organizational collaboration and knowledge sharing at scale. It’s time to build a video communications strategy.
