E-Learning: A Strategy for Sustainability
Craig Chalmers, Instructional Designer, E-Learning, Cisco

More and more companies are looking for innovative ways to increase sustainability while driving down costs in these challenging economic times. Hi tech firms including Cisco, Microsoft, and Nokia are answering this question, and E-Learning specialist, Craig Chalmers, will present these e-learning applications in an interactive forum.

Over the last ten years, e-learning has emerged as a viable and cost-effective alternative to face-to-face training methods. The emergence of sustainability as an essential business requirement makes an even stronger case for developing an e-learning strategy, which can reduce costs and eliminate the associated environmental impact of traditional classroom learning.

In this presentation, the following questions will be addressed...

- What is e-learning and what's in it for me?
- How does e-learning fit into my sustainability strategy?
- How have Cisco, Microsoft, and Nokia implemented e-learning?
- What are some emerging trends and technologies in the industry?
- Where do I start?
