Navigating the Ever Changing (SAP) Education Landscape
This is the best webcast I’ve seen in quite a while on current learning trends, ERP training, and SAP Education.
If you want to keep up with what is going on in these areas, spend an hour spent listening to Richard Campitelli (Sr. VP of SAP Education, North America), and Elliott Masie (The Masie Center).
Both presenters are leaders in education and truly excited about making learning opportunities accessible, relevant and meaningful.
Spoiler alert: Lee won, Jack is on the loose, and I’m still Lost. Watch the webcast now, and then return to this blog, if you don’t want my opinions to affect how you perceive the information presented.
People want learning to be available when they want it (think SAP’s Learning on Demand), in bite sized pieces, at a reasonable price. The internet, social networking, and collaboration are the main keys to today’s learning environment.
Learners want to be in charge of their learning and that means that learning will become deeply personalized to the needs and learning style of the learner.
Over the last 12 months, SAP customers are paying a lot more attention to unleashing the power of SAP post go-live. Part of achieving post go-live progress is “sustainment” or “sustaining” the knowledge post go-live. You’ll be seeing more use of this terminology in the future.
Fully 1/3 of SAP Education’s classes are now offered virtually, in an instructor-led online environment.
In the future, SAP Education will offer a menu of choices which will probably result in more tightly focused offerings–such as a “slice of this” a “piece of that” rather than signing up for a 3, 4, or 5 day on premise or online class.
So, here are my questions for you:
What struck you most about what Richard and Elliott presented?
What changes are you seeing in your SAP learning environment today?
What are your predictions for future changes to that learning environment?
