Title: Creating Emergency Responders / Disaster Relief at a Global Level

About the Topic

Building and/or curating eLearning for a global audience is both rewarding and challenging. Our speaker, Bob Nutting, previously served in a global role with the DisasterReady.org initiative and will present some lessons learned and best practices during his 2+ years with this incredible nonprofit initiative. This will be a conversation–so bring your insights to share as well. A demo of a major global eLearning initiative will be provided to help participants understand some of the challenges and how this team overcame them.
