eLearn Success Series Part 2 - The Instructor Session

In 2021, we had more than 8,000 people passionate about eLearning register for the ESS. Join us this year!

What is the eLearn Success Series?

The eLearn Success Series (ESS) is a uniquely valuable set of events that bring together sector experts and thought leaders to offer solutions to the most critical challenges and issues at the intersection of education and technology.

Based on the feedback we’ve received from our audience of more than 10,000 people passionate about eLearning over the past two years (under our previous name of the eLearning Success Summit), in 2022, ESS will be composed of three, specialized but interrelated sessions that culminate in a final capstone event.

The best part? You can join us for one event or many depending on what sessions you are most interested by!

May 4th - The Instructor Session

This session is dedicated to being the best trainer, teacher, or professor possible. Presentations and discussions will cover everything from how to deal with disruptors to sharpening your video presence to staying sane in the back and forth required by the blended future.
