Towards a unified e-learning strategy


London, UK, December 14, 2004 -- Chris Yapp, Head of Public Sector Innovation, Microsoft, will lead the second of four conference tracks, ’Enabling Technologies’, at Learning Technologies 2005.

Going beyond mere technology, Chris Yapp examines the greater learning environment to suggest that e-learning can transform the experience of education. By exploring the demands for an increasingly highly skilled workforce, he looks at how the UK’s current educational infrastructure needs to be re-engineered in order to make it responsive to the needs of the economy, and have the learner at its centre.

Conference organiser, Mark Penton, said: “It’s not about the technology, it’s about the learner, we all know that, but how can the technology help? The Enabling Technologies track explores the detail of how learning and development systems and software can be implemented to assist learners and organisations in achieving their goals.”

Chris examines not only the technological, but also the cultural changes this will require. He also - of course - considers the potential pitfalls.

Back by popular demand, Chris is an engaging and thought-provoking speaker who will challenge your pre-conceptions about learning and education.

The Learning Technologies 2005 Conference has attracted many of the country’s best-known commentators on learning, including Chris Yapp of Microsoft, Bob Fryer of the NHS, Nigel Payne of the BBC and Dr Rob Yeung of Talentspace. The programme is designed for business, HR, IT and education and training professionals concerned with organisational learning.
