Are you being asked to deliver your learning content in new ways, such as microlearning? Do your users want to have personalized training? Do you need to support multiple learning platforms? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then structuring your learning content in XML may be the right strategy for you. By creating your content in a neutral XML source and then transforming it for each delivery platform, you can simplify your content maintenance and still leverage the delivery features that users enjoy in each platform.

Join us to learn how companies are using Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) as the single source to power their learning content, including leveraging learning objectives to drive personalized learning. Dawn Stevens, President of Comtech Services, and Amber Swope, President of DITA Strategies, are co-chairs of the Learning & Training OASIS subcommittee and will explain how DITA can provide the structured foundation for your learning initiatives.
