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.

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
