In a current eLearning Guild survey, 86 percent of respondents said at least several”live” content was being changed to some other means of delivery. A challenge is to operate yet when potential do produce click-next screens of provide or text hours of lecture, with little else, at a meeting format. In some instances there are , possibly better, alternatives that are less-traditional which can be created and deployed.
Text-based messaging may work nicely in lieu of a much more typical strategy. We see examples of this with associations offering content in bites of around approximately 5 minutes each message, with messages delivered across the span of weeks or a couple of days.

Learners decide on the time of day and can subscribe to email or texts content will arrive. Figures 1-3 show the articles of that a day.

New alliances
Medtronic medical device maker and COVID patients — and Allego sales readiness platform teamed up to make a solution with considerable effect on the current hospital workers. Hospitals are taking whatever they can get, including products by. This can be coupled with a scenario where ventilator manufacturer reps and respiratory therapists are in short supply. By all reports, this involved an enormous 24/7 effort from both partners to provide translations for workers in non-English speaking states and to convince manufacturers to discuss information in an open manner.
