Finally educators and trainers have the power to detect early potential problems with learning and to intervene early – improving the chance that the student will meet and even exceed their expectations. In this session Dr. Allen Partridge, Adobe Sr. eLearning Evangelist will demonstrate the Learning Intervention and Collaboration technology in Adobe Presenter 9, and discuss the state of Learning outcomes prediction, recommendation and intervention in eLearning today.
