The event also will bring together Inkling customers to share how they are using digital content to power their business, and to learn about upcoming platform and feature improvements.

“Traditional learning management systems (LMS) were never designed to deliver continuous learning in the flow of work,” said Bersin, a global industry analyst who will deliver a keynote on September 17. “The new paradigm will be defined by just-in-time learning, combining formal, informal, collaboration and micro-learning in context, delivered to employees on the job.”
