I’m supposed to be working on my presentation for Learning Solutions next week, “Extending your Reach: Taking your training content beyond your LMS”. So naturally I decided to write a blog instead to tell you what I’ll be talking about and procrastinate just a little bit more. I’m having flashbacks to my college days when that extra layer of stress that a deadline brings causes me to do everything but the task at hand.

Make no mistake, the process for getting there might be slow and caffeine driven, but I’m really excited to be talking about extended enterprise training models, most specifically the technical bits to consider.

We talk to people everyday that are trying to figure out how to make content and systems work together, and more and more often it’s to fulfill an extended enterprise use case. At Rustici Software, when we think about what an extended enterprise model means, we immediately start to ask questions around the systems in play and the desired learner experiences. For us, we want to help organizations (and the platforms that they use) provide the most elegant and practical approaches for tackling a distributed content model. We won’t have strong opinions on what your content includes, who you train or how you measure it. But we will push you to consider the technical details to enable you to execute a plan that supports delivering your content to your various audiences and ensuring that you have the data to track the results.

So that’s a sneak peek at what we’ll be talking about at LSCON next week. If you’re coming to the conference, let us know! We’d love to meet up. Or just come to my session on Wednesday, March 27 from 10:45 AM – 11:45 AM ET, to see the slides that will somehow all be put together and beautiful by then.
