In our previous blog post, we introduced modern eLearning. One of the themes we wanted to highlight in that introduction is that modern eLearning content delivers superior learning outcomes when it is creative, versatile, and pedagogicalally structured.

Here we will look at the subject of rich content and how applying that same creativity, versatility, and pedagogy to its design helps companies meet their learning needs.

If you’re not familiar with the term rich content, we can break it down into three main types.

How to create a multilingual marketing strategy

Posted by Annaelisa Huhtala on 09/08/18 06:02

If you have a product or service that you can sell to a foreign-language target market, then digital marketing channels and language versioning give you an easy way to make new customer contacts and start converting them into sales.

Done right, you can reuse the majority of your content and get similar – or sometimes better – results with less than half the production costs of the original version.

Four trends taking eLearning to the next level

Posted by Glennon Kiernan-Lahti on 14/06/18 06:02


As digitization continues to drive change in the workplace, it has transformed how we manage, how we collaborate, how we sell, and also how we choose to learn.
