LMS Predictions: Year of Employee-Centric Changes

No comments

The last decade and a half has witnessed a tectonic shift in the management style and management models that guide corporate business. The move has been from a very hierarchical, top-down, process-driven approach to a more democratic model, where problem-solving and managing happens in smaller, more agile and less structured teams. Consequently, it is of little surprise that the way companies structure and disseminate learning into their workplace has started to mirror this model.

No comments

What is API?  Application Programming Interface (API) is defined as “a set of subroutine definitions, protocols and tools for building application software.” In simpler terms, an API is essentially a language that enables different pieces of software to talk to each other. APIs also make it possible to move information from one program to another — for example, if you cut or copy something from Gmail, you can paste it into a Microsoft Word document.
