Why Penton Is Rethinking Its eLearning Platform

first_img Ecke says the technology was vetted by the company’s centralized product development team, and has been implemented (or soon will be) in a total of four Penton markets. Undertaking the process on a corporate level is allowing faster execution and is offering a larger testing ground for improvements. Preliminary results show that the programs on the new platform are tracking ahead of expectations, he adds. The company got in on digital continuing education early—it launched its first course in 2004, and more than 14,000 users have taken classes since—but Penton’s agriculture division recently relaunched its elearning platform with an eye toward engagement and mobile access. Penton has made a very conscious pivot away from B2B publisher, toward a broader role as an “information services provider,” since David Kieselstein took the reins as CEO in 2012. As part of the strategy, investments in non-core businesses like data, events, and now elearning, have followed. Scalability is also a chief concern, says John Ecke, vice president of digital product management for Penton Agriculture. And not just in his market vertical. But despite the relative success, Ecke is being realistic about where elearning fits into the overall revenue pie for B2B media.center_img “We anticipate the market size for accredited, continuing education courses for the agriculture sector to grow as more state agencies embrace elearning as a viable alternative to their current in-classroom requirement,” he says. “We also wanted a platform that would scale across other Penton markets.” Interactive features like videos, quizzes and graphics are now embedded into the course modules, and the UX has been overhauled with today’s multiplatform experience in mind. Journalists and expert specialists, in conjunction with various state agencies in the agriculture sector, work together to come up with the course material. “We’ll certainly see more focus on elearning across the B2B markets, but I wouldn’t categorize it as the next big thing,” he says. “Our job is to serve information to our users to help them do their jobs better in all aspects—online education absolutely meets that criteria so we’ll continue to build out our capability [there].”last_img read more

Pentagon Update Push to Streamline Bureaucracy Expected to Fade amid Shakeup

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR One issue likely to get lost in the shuffle at the Pentagon following the departure of Secretary Jim Mattis is management reform, says a former DOD and Office of Management and Budget official. “I think that is going to lose momentum,” said Marc Cancian, with the department’s top posts now filled by individuals on an acting basis, including the chief management officer position. “I don’t think it had much momentum to begin with, but whatever little momentum it had will be gone,” Cancian, now a senior adviser with the Center for Strategic and International Studies’ international security program, told Defense News. “Six months ago there was a lot of talk about management reform, but you don’t hear about any big changes that are in the wind.”DoD photo by Army Sgt.
