Many enterprises definitely intend to drive down training costs, according to Sue Martin, Global Certification Portfolio Manager at SAP, but employee qualification nevertheless remains a key factor in enhancing the ability to compete. "Against this background, e-learning could see its greatest upswing in years", the SAP manager asserts. "In times of tight or zero travel budgets and increasing environmental awareness, the importance of learning technologies has to be given a second look.”
Charles Jennings, Global Head of Learning at the media concern Thomson Reuters, says: "’Do more with less’ is today’s corporate byword. The path is leading away from resource-hungry approaches such as face-to-face teaching with its lack of scalability."
"Only the most business-critical training will remain unscathed", confirms the British e-learning consultant Clive Sheperd. Christophe Binot, E-Learning Manager at the French oil firm Total, adds: "The newest solutions make it possible to turn a PowerPoint presentation into a course for a thousand employees within two hours. The ROI outperfoms training in a classroom."

From December 3 - 5, the international conference and trade exhibition will tackle the gamut of issues related to learning technologies for schools, universities and enterprises.
