Ok, don't show again
Inspiration, innovation and demonstrations at DevLearn 2019
What a week it was, DevLearn 2019 was better than ever! This year saw a record number of attendees and the buzz inside the exhibition hall was fantastic. Everyone was keen to learn and share their experiences in the industry and there was a great atmosphere of camaraderie.
We loved meeting with old friends and connecting with new contacts; introducing our new solutions and telling the Bridge Learning Tech story, but it was also a great opportunity to review the latest trends in L&D and see what our global peers are doing in comparison to the UK.
It's clear that companies are taking on and recognising the importance and benefits of digitalising their learning and the consensus was that most L&D professionals were lagging behind. Many were still using Elearning and organising specific training days/sessions every 6 months, an expensive and time-consuming option.
Bridge Learning Tech at Devlearn 2019
Companies were really excited to hear about micro-learning and bot-style learning, not least because of the flexibility and engaging nature of this type of learning. Micro-learning has been proved to be much more effective than traditional forms of learning as it delivers engaging and bite-sized pieces of information over a specified period of time, thereby assuring the information is retained. Our AI bot proved popular as it is simple to use, engaging and can be integrated into essentially any system, LMS, Slack, different apps etc. The chatbot is not a new concept, but our Learnbot's ability to learn from the user and its deep artificial intelligence means that the learning experience takes on a whole new level – not just answering the users questions but collecting data that tailors the experience for each user, and reporting capabilities that can integrate into the wider L&D systems to maximise future learning.
We were really proud to be part of Demofest this year. We agreed that it was a bit like speed dating! Demonstrating our chatbot while the attendees moved from one demo to another. It was a great experience, everyone really interested on what technology is out there; dry throats and aching cheeks from smiling but our demo proved popular and we were overwhelmed with the interest in our specific technology! The feedback from meeting with everyone was incredibly beneficial and really interesting; hearing what different companies do and how they saw the chatbot benefitting learning in their specific industries.
With the sunshine of Vegas behind us we're back to the chill of the UK and getting busy working on our next projects, full of inspiration and bursting contact books.
Thank you to DevLearn and to all attendees and exhibitors, we're looking forward to next year!
