Trends move so quickly in this digital age. L&D Professionals must keep up-to-date and informed with the latest technology, trends and techniques or risk being left behind. eLab is the only one of its kind in New Zealand with hands-on workshops allowing the L&D community to take time to play with new tech and learn low cost and free tools to create digital learning.

eLearnz eLab workshops focus on the latest in digital learning trends, technology and design. Attendees will work with thought leaders during these sessions where they will actively create digital learning. Participants will go away with up-to-date training methods that can be put into practice immediately back at their organisation and passed along to their team.

The two-day eLab in Auckland on 15th & 16th May features 6 mini workshops including Interactive 360 Video, Branching Scenarios using Twine, Creating Quizzes and Surveys using Typeform, Learn how to become a Game Designer, Build a Microsite for those who don’t have an LMS and always popular Articulate Storyline and xAPI. Participants will use the award-winning and fastest growing Docebo LMS to upload their learning and the best will win a VR headset!

“Through eLearnz eLab you’ll be treated to exciting new tech, but there’ll also be plenty of time for conversation, hands-on learning and collaboration that will inspire and invigorate your L&D spark,” says Bloom Founder and Director Rustica Lamb.

We are grateful to have the support of our sponsors Docebo, Learning eXperts and Sprout Labs to help bring the latest in learning tech to the L&D industry in New Zealand.
