Join Us for LMS Week: 5 Days, 5 Webinars, Tons of Great Insight
Psst ... Have you heard the big news? There's a five-day virtual event from Jan. 29–Feb. 2 going on called "LMS Week." It's a little like Shark Week but with fewer teeth and more impact for students (not just those studying marine biology).
We're hosting five days of insightful discussion with different experts guests each day that dive into key stages of the LMS journey. From vision setting and strategy building to evaluating, choosing, implementing, and transforming learning with LMSs, our jam-packed schedule has something for everyone.
So whether you're just starting out with edtech or looking for ways to advance your skills, this is the must-attend (and maybe the only) virtual LMS event of the year. I mean, just take a gander at what we have planned!
