NEWS: Multi award-winning learning provider, Sponge UK is ‘mixing it up’ at Europe’s largest learning technologies event to help businesses get the most out of workplace learning.

Sponge will be urging visitors and delegates at Learning Technologies 2017 (London Olympia, February 1-2) to join the discussion about the most effective digital mix to support modern learners.

Liam O’Meara, Head of Sales and Marketing at Sponge UK said:

Liam O'Meara, Head of Sales & Marketing, Sponge UK
“We’re getting people to think about digital learning interventions as the ingredients to drive improved performance, rather than viewing them as standalone solutions. We’ll be asking people to consider the best possible digital mix for their organisation, now and in the future. Of course, it wouldn’t be Sponge without a sprinkling of fun! Visitors to our Exhibition Hub will get a delicious handmade cupcake to decorate with colourful toppings, each one representing different digital learning elements. We’ll be taking lots of photos and posting them on social media under #spongeLT17.”

Sponge’s stand at location C10 also features Innovation Corner, where visitors will experience new learning technologies. There will be regular demonstrations of interactive 360° video, the award-winning Axonify employee knowledge platform and the latest elearning games.

Learning Technologies Designer of the Year, Kate Nicholls, who is Head of Learning Innovation at Sponge UK, is hosting a free seminar introducing learning professionals to the next step in 360° learning content. The session, Say hello to interactive 360 video: what it is and when to use it, will discuss the opportunities of this new learning technology, based on the results of a pioneering project.
