#GuildChat for 1/11/19: Collecting Better Data

Our next #GuildChat takes place Friday, January 11th at 11am PT / 2pm ET. Our topic for this week’s chat is on collecting better data.


When we speak of data in regards to learning solutions we are seeking those elements that inform and help us build understanding around everything from our business’s needs, the learner, the context and effectiveness and impact.

Data is plentiful and can be powerful if we know how to find it, how to access it and how to determine what is most valuable to our and our stakeholder’s needs.

Join us this week as we explore how data is collected, analyzed and used. Look for the community to share their tips on the tools and techniques to find the most meaningful data and extract the powerful meaning from it.
