Learning concepts and trends to help transform your business

Get to Know ECHO at Learntec 2017

Posted by Sebastian Frankenberger on Thu, Jan 19, 2017


Every year, over 7,000 HR decision-makers and IT managers from all over the world come to the Learntec Convention in Karlsruhe, Germany to exchange new information and innovations in Learning and Development. This makes this event the number one place to go for technology enabled learning in German-speaking Europe. Once again, SwissVBS will be at Learntec and we are looking forward to the exciting conversations ahead. Come visit us at Booth C59 and we will share our newest solutions and case studies with you, from onboarding to reinforcement and continuous performance support. You can also schedule a demo of ECHO and SET, two new award-winning apps from SwissVBS.

On Thursday, January 26 between 11:50 a.m. and 12:10 p.m., I will be speaking at the Learntec user forum on Overcoming the Forgetting Curve Through Reinforcement.  While many of us in corporate learning focus on creating an engaging learning moment, it is becoming increasingly more important to focus on what we do after this initial training. Science shows that we forget 90% of what we learn within the first week after training. If you don't want to waste 90% of your training budget, you had better be certain to create an experience that works against the forgetting curve. In my presentation I will show real examples of how five minutes of reinforcement, three days a week, over a period of one month can improve your learning retention results by more than 50% - based on actual data and supported by rich, real-time analytics on competency development.

We look forward to seeing you in Karlsruhe this year!

Sebastian and the entire SwissVBS Team
