The conference featured speeches, panel discussions, workshops as well as brainstorming sessions on the topics of Driving High Performance, Customer Centric HR, Transforming HR, Redefining Engagement, Driving Innovation and HR strategies.
In his presentation titled “Running effective online learning interventions in Oman” Sajan focused on inviting attention of the audience to the changing world of corporate training and development in Oman as more and more organisations took the eLearning route to deliver corporate training in the phase of proliferation of internet and related technologies as well as digital communication devices. He presented statistics of the number of organizations and employees in Oman who used online learning for knowledge/skills enhancement from 2012 to 2015 which depicted a clear upward trend. Pointing to the success achieved by XpertLearning in this space, he emphasised the indispensability of engaging content as a critical factor for success of online learning interventions. In this connection he said, “People expect to be bored by eLearning—XpertLearning has shown that it doesn’t have to be so”. He also pointed to a range of “learner engagement strategies” that have been instrumental in the phenomenal success achieved by XpertLearning pointing that, “In order to ensure success of online learning interventions, the role of trainer is optional, but the role of learner is essential.” Responding to a question on designing custom learning experiences he said, “The most important principle for designing engaging learning experiences is to see custom content designing as designing an experience rather than designing information”.
The conference concluded on the 17th of February 2016 with a workshop on performance management. With live polls and surveys initiated by Fleming, it was clear that the delegates felt the conference to be insightful and inspirational.
