Xperience 2018 is just a few weeks away, and around here we’re gearing up for four days’ full of learning, networking, innovation, and fun! This year’s conference is bigger and better than ever, with tracks targeted specifically for continuing education professionals like you. Make sure to check out these sessions during your time in Orlando!

Roadmap Sessions: Join us on day one of the conference for the Crowd Wisdom LMS and Freestone LMS Roadmap sessions. Here, we’ll review the latest features and enhancements from the past year and discuss the product strategy and accelerated innovation shaping the upcoming releases and roadmap. Hear firsthand from the product managers about the bright futures of Community Brands learning solutions.

Meet the Products: Are Crowd Wisdom and Freestone totally new to you? Do you want to learn more about the benefits of a powerful LMS? Join our “Meet Freestone” and “Meet Crowd Wisdom” sessions to hear more about each product and how they empower your organization to deliver impactful education to your members. Whether it’s delivering interactive live events or robust on-demand courses, Community Brands has the tools to meet the needs of your learners.

Repurpose Your Content Without Breaking the Bank or Losing Your Mind: Learners are after a variety of content types and want education that’s customized to meet their preferences. Meeting the individual learner’s needs can seem like a tall order, but with the right system, it’s easy to get the most bang for your buck on any given program. In this session, we’ll talk about best practices and strategies for stretching your content.

Understanding the Millennial Mind: As the Millennial influence continues to grow, these young learners are redefining education programs, innovation in technology, and content development and consumption. Join us as we take a closer look at the challenges of attracting and retaining Millennial learners. We’ll take a deep dive into Millennial education preferences and tactics for how to target them with pricing, content, program types, and more. You’ll walk away with engagement strategies that will not only meet the needs of Millennials, but also generate revenue for your organization.

The Dynamic Duo: Careers and Education: Through our research, we’ve learned job opportunities and certification are two of the top reasons a member joins an association. This makes your learning management system (LMS) and your career center a killer combo for meeting your members’ needs. Members are looking to you to help them set themselves apart from the crowd and advance in their careers. In this session, we’ll look at how Community Brands systems can help you better engage with your members and make some money along the way.

Tricks of the Trade:  Creating Effective Management Processes for a Kick-Butt Certification Program: In this session, you’ll learn the tricks of the trade to developing and maintaining your certification management processes and preparing your organization to meet and maintain third-party accreditation best practices. Whether your program is looking for third-party accreditation or not, this presentation will discuss many things to consider and lessons learned when organizing your documentation for accreditation readiness.

These sessions just scratch the surface of the learning opportunities available to you in Orlando! We hope to see you there! If you aren’t registered to attend Xperience 2018, it’s not too late! Register now to secure your spot!
