With the BETT show only just finished, I’ve dashed down to London again for another big date in our calendar; the 2012 Learning Technologies Exhibition. Held over the 25th and 26th of January in the Olympia 2, London, it’s a showcase of the best technology and innovations designed to support workplace learning.

After an early start setting up at stand 14, we’ve had loads of visitors so far, making it a busy, but exciting morning.

Delegates have been chatting with us about all aspects of workplace learning, from consultancy to support. They’ve also been interested in live demonstrations of our open source training solutions, including the fantastic Totara LMS.

Of course, me and the Workplace Learning team are still looking forward to the rest of the exhibition. Here at Webanywhere, the idea of lifetime learning is key to what we do, so I can’t wait to show off our latest innovations and find out what the other exhibitors have been getting up to.

I’m at the show with both Martin Judd and Conor Gilligan, two experts in e-learning, training and development who are ready to offer their tips, ideas and advice. So, if your at Learning Technologies, or in the area, please do come and say hello at stand 14.

Welcome to BETT 2012

Yesterday I travelled all the way down to London with the team for the first day of the BETT Show 2012. We set up in the morning at Stand K49, and its been all go since then. With Wednesday traditionally meant to be a quiet day, I wouldn’t be surprised if we were rushed off our feet all the way till Saturday 14th of January when it finishes.

The show, for those of you that don’t know, is an annual event that showcases the best uses of ICT and e-learning in education. It’s a great opportunity for me and my staff to meet new customers and catch up with a few familiar faces too. The exhibition is also a big inspiration, with plenty of exciting demonstrations and eye-catching inventions.

We started the day with a Webanywhere presentation at the Google stand all about Google Apps and Moodle. Then, we dived right in at our own stand with chats, coffee and demos of our software. My personal highlight was showing off the brand new version of our school website builder; School Jotter 2.

As well as a team at the stand, we also had our multimedia crew filming and snapping the event. Take a look at their BETT 2012 video round-up of the show, featured below.
