Everybody who’s anybody in e-learning has heard of either ‘Experience API’ or ‘Experience API’ and most of you have questions: What’s the impact on my learning design? What are some examples of real world projects? I’m sold; how do I get buy in from my boss? How do I practically get started and solve this particular problem?
At 6pm-7pm on May 18th during ATD ICE in Orlando Florida, five brave experts will band together in the Taverna Opa to chat, answer your questions and discuss solutions to your problems. You’ll chat with each expert in an informal setting during this free event at a conference you’re probably already in town for. How awesome is that?
There’s 60 spots available at the time of writing. Sign up happening via Eventbrite. There’s no cost for the event, but please do let us know as soon as you know if you book but then can’t attend so we can open up the spot for somebody else.
Which experts will you meet at this Greek-appetizer-furnished event? The list is below. Each expert has a specific area of expertise they’ll be ready to talk to you about, so think about the questions you’d like to ask each one. Come prepared to share your experiences and challenges.
