Delivering the Keynote at the World Swiss eLearning Conference: Empowering Knowledge That Creates Business Outcomes

- May 2, 2013 - 0 Comments

On April 10th I had the privilege to deliver, via TelePresence, the keynote address for the Swiss eLearning Conference 2013 (SeLC) in Zurich. Aimed at the Swiss professional learning community, the event was themed “Educate Your Customer” with a focus on e-learning, online training and augmented reality.  I enjoy engaging with forward-thinking educators who share my passion for creating new paths to learning.Swiss-eLearning-Conference

In my keynote, I described Learning@Cisco’s innovative approach to creating the next generation of IT talent.  The fact is that the industry is experiencing an IT networking skills gap at the very same time the world is approaching the Internet of Everything and the prospect of 50 billion connected devices by the year 2020. 

To help bridge this divide, Cisco has pioneered the use of virtual classrooms, social networking, games, and other resources to democratize learning via our social learning network.  We bring together groups and individuals across the globe to learn from each other about IT networking in ways that augment traditional classrooms. Our goal is to remove barriers to learning and assist our partners and customers with developing the right networking talent to run their businesses.
