Weejee Learning Serves As a Premium Level Sponsor at DevLearn 2013
Weejee to sponsor DemoFest and speak on the value of fun in enterprise-wide e-learning.
Durham, NC (PRWEB) July 26, 2013
Weejee Learning, a global provider of custom, interactive and fun enterprise-wide e-learning solutions, is a premium level sponsor at the upcoming DevLearn Conference and Expo 2013, North America’s leading event focused on learning technologies. Weejee will sponsor the DemoFest portion of the conference, a collective e-learning showcase where conference participants present their latest projects and are reviewed and recognized by their own peers.
DevLearn will take place Oct. 23 to 25 in Las Vegas, with the DemoFest Party on Thursday from 5 to 7 p.m. DemoFest participants, ranging from e-learning specialists to IT coordinators, will present a wide variety of solutions to common e-learning challenges and share information about the tools, technologies and processes used to build them. These participants then also vote on their favorite program in each category, in a peer review process. Winning entries will be recognized during the general session on Friday morning and will be featured in a DemoFest highlight webinar which will broadcast after the conference.
In addition to the sponsorship, Weejee Learning’s co-founders will speak at the conference on Weejee’s signature topic, funification, a term coined by Weejee for the idea that learning is more effective when it is fun. It is based on research showing learning in a positive emotional state stimulates the brain to learn more and that fun makes intimidating, perplexing information engaging and easier to comprehend. Weejee’s session, titled “Learning Made Fun: Gadgets, Games and a Safe Place to Explore,” will focus on the effect of using funification in organizations and in the workplace to result in better learning.
“We’re excited to be sponsoring DemoFest, which is such a unique opportunity for organizations to show their latest and greatest work in learning technologies,” said Ian Huckabee, CEO and co-founder of Weejee. “DemoFest is always a great chance for us to learn from each other and explore the latest learning innovations.”
Weejee utilizes funification in services such as custom digital solutions, curriculum and learning needs analyses, program design, social learning strategy, and instructional design and development. Weejee Learning was awarded Best in Show award at DemoFest in 2011 for Bissette’s work for the Door Security and Safety Foundation.
