Weejee to Lead Guild Academy Pre-conference Blended Course on Project Management and Concurrent Session on xAPI Design Ideas
Durham, North Carolina – Oct. 9, 2014 – Weejee Learning, a global provider of fun, interactive enterprise-wide custom learning solutions, will serve as premium level sponsor at the upcoming DevLearn Conference and Expo 2014 where the company’s founders will be leading presentations on two different topics. Weejee Learning will also be sponsoring DevLearn’s eLearning DemoFest – an event where conference participants showcase their latest innovations.
DevLearn is one of North America’s leading technology events focused on learning technologies. It offers more than 125 concurrent sessions covering critical topics to assist attendees in developing new skills and expertise in the management, design and development of technology-based learning. The conference takes place in Las Vegas from Oct. 29 to 31,
Weejee Co-founder and CEO Ian Huckabee will be speaking at the conference. His session, “Seven Surprising Ways the xAPI Can Improve eLearning Design,” will demonstrate novel ways in which the Experience API can be used to overcome some of the most common learning challenges that organizations face. He will co-present with Saltbox president and CEO John Delano.
Tracy Bissette, co-founder and president of Weejee, will be leading a Guild Academy Pre-conference Blended Course entitled “Project Leadership for Instructional Designers” – a blended learning offering combining live online training beginning in October and culminating with a two-day in-person workshop at DevLearn. The five-part course helps participants cultivate and refine project management skills in the development of instructional design solutions.
Additionally, for the second consecutive year, Weejee Learning is sponsoring DevLearn’s eLearning DemoFest. This event provides conference participants with a forum to unveil their latest e-leaning innovations and share information about the tools, technologies and processes used to build them. Attendees vote in a peer review process on their favorite solution in each category, and Weejee presents the Weejee Award for innovation and engagement. The event will be held Thursday, Oct. 30 from 4 to 6 p.m. The winning entries will be recognized during the general session the following morning and will be featured in a DemoFest highlight webinar to go live following the close of the conference.
“We’re thrilled to be sponsoring DemoFest again this year. So much time, energy and innovation goes into development of e-learning solutions, and DemoFest is such a fun, interactive way for organizations to demonstrate new ideas in learning,” said Huckabee. “Tracy and I are also honored to be presenting at the conference. To be able to share insights and get feedback from peers is always such an incredibly rewarding experience.”
