Transforming Learning, at Scale: How Saint Leo University Created the Ultimate Learning Ecosystem

Tuesday, February 14 | 1:45PM–2:30PM | Montgomery
Session Type: Breakout Session
In 2015, Saint Leo University discovered its LMS system was being "retired." In the 17 months that followed, Saint Leo built a hyperconnected, interdependent learning system that's already transforming teaching and learning at scale. In this session, we will showcase the original strategy used to create Saint Leo's immersive, multimodal, and learner-centric system. Hear about the many hurdles, from political to practical, in creating and launching a single user experience using multiple platforms. You'll also see how the infrastructure creates more meaningful data "hooks" than any known learning system to provide tremendous opportunities for retention improvement, as well as impact brand and enrollment.
