Ali Soper, Cofounder of MicroLearn, reflects on the Learning Technologies 2020 Conference and Exhibition, recapping the events of the show and celebrating another successful and rewarding exhibition. 

With Learning Technologies (LT20), Europe’s leading showcase of learning and technology innovation, wrapped up for another year, we’re back in the office and reflecting on the event.

busy standLT20 was an exciting show for us, marking our first major outing as part of the Access Group! In fact, the Learning Technologies Exhibitions each year are an important annual marker for the MicroLearn Team.

Launching at Learning Technologies 2017, with just 42 compliance titles and the promise of more, each year it’s always a proud moment for me to see how far the team has come.

In just 3 years, we’ve built a library of just over 160 titles in multiple formats and are now proud to be part of the Access Group, in the growing Digital Learning & Compliance division.

Access Stand

To transition from being a small but mighty team of 12 to now part of one of the UK’s top technology companies is really something!

The Access Group stand at LT20 was a true testament to the group’s commitment within the L&D space to offer the ultimate one-stop-shop for business technology solutions.

From Digital Learning to Human Capital Management, there is an industry-leading solution for all businesses across the sectors.

Plus, the introduction of the Learning Llama proved extremely popular, with huge queues of eager visitors ready to play the Valentine’s themed Gamebrain Quiz to be in with a chance to win a cuddly learning companion of their own!

As MicroLearn has grown and evolved, we’ve had the opportunity to work with some extraordinary customers and partners. These industry events are an awesome opportunity to connect and network with both old friends and new!

What’s more, it’s always a pleasure for me to catch up with the industry’s leaders to learn more about their solutions, to explore what’s on the roadmap for the year ahead and to celebrate each other’s successes.

On Day 2, Anthony Edwards, Business Development Manager for MicroLearn, delivered a fantastic demo of the MicroLearn Toolkit over in the Demo Zone which proved popular!

He exploring how to use the MicroLearn resources to promote learner engagement within the organisation, as readymade marketing tools.

Because we know a winning learning strategy takes more than simply deploying great content on a modern platform, the session highlighted the importance of building internal marketing campaigns to boost learner engagement and deliver that all-important ROI.

A personal highlight for me was having the opportunity to deliver a seminar on Day 2, exploring how to access the power of microlearning!

It’s a topic very close to my heart and one which, as a massive advocate of microlearning and learner engagement, I love to talk about! We defined “the modern learner”, looked at the science behind microlearning and explored why it can be so effective as part of the blend in today’s busy workplace.

The show was great fun and a huge success for the team! If you had an opportunity to stop by either stand – thank you! We love getting to talk to likeminded individuals and champion the hard work and passion in the L&D space.

If you’d like to know more about MicroLearn and Access or didn’t get a chance to meet the team at the event, we’d love to hear from you!

For now, here’s to another successful year ahead, looking forward together to LT21!
