    CommPartners and InspirEd host the final webinar in a 3-part webinar series: 

    Join us for this FREE webinar on February 11, 2020!

    About this Webinar:

    The new value proposition in the continuing education market is not information - its transformation. It's learning that translates into results. And given the fact industry analysts are projecting the eLearning industry to more than double in North America alone, we've got to get this right. What must we do to deliver results by design? Let’s talk about connecting the dots between intention and outcome in our learning portfolio.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Discover the key differentiators between information-based programming and transformational learning
    • Explore five program design decisions that generate the kinds of results your learners are hungry for
    • Discuss options for measuring outcomes and full-circle marketing to tell the hero story of your education programs

    CommPartners is sponsoring Learning ¥ Technology ¥ Design, a virtual conference hosted by Leading Learning on February 25 and 27!

    Learning ¥ Technology ¥ Design (LTD, for short) is an online conference designed specifically for those who work in the business of lifelong learning, continuing education, and professional development. The goal is to help attendees maximize the reach, revenue, and impact of the offerings in their learning portfolio.

    One of the things we really like about LTD is that the folks at Leading Learning "walk the walk" and work to find the most effective ways to deliver and facilitate adult learning experiences. This year they've designed LTD as a two-day event but with a gap day in between, to allow some time for reflection and potentially application after day 1 and before day 2 starts. You can find out much more about Learning ¥ Technology ¥ Design 2020 at, but here's a quick snapshot of what it'll offer:


    (4) 75-minute plenary sessions--one on the state of digital learning (and really learning in general), one on marketing and getting customers to click that "Buy" button, one on design thinking and learning experience, and one on online communities and their role in learning
    (12) 45-minute concurrents sessions, covering topics like action mapping, career pathways, converting place-based learning to a virtual format, metalearning, data-driven decision-making, and more
    (4) brief priming and synthesis sessions to start and end of each day, with a focus on bringing everything together
    An optional Follow-Up Friday--a participant-driven Q&A/discussion/reflection session


    If you're interested in participating, you can use the code org100cp for $100 off an organizational registration (good for a group of up to 5 people) or ind50cp for $50 off an individual registration through EOD Friday, February 14. We hope you'll join us at LTD. We think it's going to be a high-value event. If you have any questions, let us know, or feel free to contact the folks at Leading Learning directly at

    Associations offer a lot of educational opportunities. Start by counting the in-person and digital offerings. Then add in the publications and other association assets that deliver instruction, and you’ll see it adds up quickly. Most of us organize this content chronologically: When did it last occur or what registration opens next? But what if we adopted the characteristics of a university advisor? Individualized assessments, hand-picked courses, a clear pathway to graduation, course corrections along the way, and, ultimately, a certificate to demonstrate achievement.

    Hear Event Garde, CEO, Aaron Wolowiec and CommPartners, CEO, Rich Finstein, share how important it is for learners to receive more personalized learning recommendations. These pathways could be for stand-alone courses or a clear path comprising of a series of learning interventions, resulting in greater engagement and a higher return on their investment.

    In this session:

    • Identify your association’s current education assets.
    • Evaluate your association’s current organization of education assets.
    • Examine segmentation as a means of better organizing education assets.
    • Explore better organizing of education assets for a sample segment.
    • Consider the marketing implications associated with reorganizing content.
