Learning Portals – User Centric Gateway to Learning & Knowledge


In the age of information glut, Learning Portals can provide Learners a way through the chaos to Learning and Knowledge that is useful and easier to access. However success stories are few and far between due to technology and design challenges. In many organisations the LMS is viewed as a Learning portal but not the one that provides the flexibility and user experience required.

With the Learning ecosystem becoming more complex and connected, Learner experience expectations are rising with an increase in the need to reduce costs. 

Is it possible to implement a Learning portal that meets these requirements? We discuss with an experienced panel about the state of Learning portals and which way is it heading.

Date & Time : Thu, 29th June 2017, 12 – 1 pm Sydney Time

We Discuss

  1. Should Learning Portals be the gateway for all learning and knowledge in the organisation?
  2. What is user experience expected from a Learning Portal?
  3. What are the benefits and drawbacks of using the LMS as a Learning Portal?
  4. Can a Learning Portal be developed in the face of IT and policy restrictions?
