From The Director’s Desk
 
On 7th April, we celebrated our 9th Anniversary! And with it, we also celebrated 9 years of bringing innovative learning technologies to workplaces across the world. Thank you for being a part of this journey. To celebrate this occasion, we have created some really exciting stuff using Parallax scrolling technology. Check out ‘View To Learn’ section for more details and the web link.

In this issue, we turn the spotlight on UpsideLMS. Find out what’s ‘more’ in this best value Learning Management System in the ‘Spotlight’ section.

I was in Australia for the past 2 weeks – attending AITD National Conference, delivering a learning session, catching up with some clients and meeting prospects. While it was a learning-rich experience no doubt, one thing that stuck with me is the common concern emerging in large mining businesses in Western Australia. This drove me to write a blog post addressing these concerns. Scroll to ‘Now Trending’ section to read the post.

I am looking forward to another such learning experience in my upcoming UK trip which will see me delivering another learning session at CIPD HRD 2013. I will also be conducting free consultancy on Mobile Learning for interested attendees. More details on this in ‘Upside Learning in News’. Also, learn about what the LMS of “Now” truly means and how you can leverage it and find about 8 things you need to follow while implementing blended learning via an LMS. Last but not the least; get a quick view of the latest eLearning industry news.
