SAP will present The Future of Learning – are we transforming?
We hear a lot about the future of technology – about the power of artificial intelligence, peer to peer networks, elegant user interfaces but whilst we are busy transforming our organisations, products and markets are we applying technology to how our staff learn about these areas. And what about our customers and suppliers too? And could we do more?
In this talk you will look at what has really changed in the way organisations upskill and whether they are getting the best value out of what is available today – as well as taking a peek at how will learning look like in the future. For example, will formal learning disappear and point of need learning cover everything? What will people need to learn and how will real-time analytics empower the super user community?
Derek Maynard, SIG Co-Chair will present Lost In Translation
In the global marketplace we often have teams spread across the world all speaking, and learning, in different languages. Historically, many larger companies have taken the line 'Our business language is English', but in the modern world, with more and more learning being self-serve and online, we need to consider the option of offering users training in their local language.
In this session, we will look at some different options available for translating materials and discuss some of the benefits and disadvantages of each.
In preparation for this session, if you have any comments on particular translation services, software based tools or any other thoughts, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org
Roy Clark, SIG Co-Chair will be delivering a Super User Update.
Many of us try to identify, prepare and use Super Users within our organisations to try and train and inform others in the use of our systems. At the UKISUG Connect 2017 conference we visited this topic and updated an old document of what Super Users are.
In this session, we will look at the updated Super User guide and fine tune any details.
