Understanding Analytics for the Learning Organization

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) HERNDON, VA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/14/12 -- Join Meridian Knowledge Solutions for a free, one-hour webinar on November 15, 2012, with Brandon Hall Group to learn about analytics for training and development. Managers inside organizations of all kinds are talking about analytics, asking for it and trying to figure out how to use it vis-à-vis training employees as well as the extended enterprise of partners and customers.


In a recent Brandon Hall Group survey, over 46 percent of organizations said that one of the top measures they used to evaluate the effectiveness of their learning is a "change in business performance." There is no doubt that the analytics derived from training and developing employees, business partners and customers is important. But data is only valuable if you know how to leverage it for sound business decisions.

Join Stacey Harris, vice president of Research for Brandon Hall Group, and Vinay Nilakantan, director of Product Development and Research for Meridian, as they hold an in-depth conversation on the topic of Learning Analytics from 1 p.m. EST to 2 p.m. EST (U.S.) on Nov. 15.

Webinar takeaways will include: Defining Learning Analytics: What is it and how does it work Context is Everything: Preparing your data and organization for analytics. Useful Analytics: Identifying the most useful analytics for your organization. Lessons Learned: Avoiding pitfalls and challenges.

"Any field captured in a learning management system is learning data, and managers can potentially use this information to great effectiveness if their goals for training are clearly defined," said Nilakantan. "Learning analytics is the analysis of connections and insights that managers can gather from comparing learning, people and data for the purpose of making better business decisions."
