Share how your team is practicing #LearnInPlace

Win 2 tickets to the OpenSesame User Conference or $500 toward the professional development program of your choice by sharing how your organization is continuing employee training efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic.

At OpenSesame, we’ve always believed that elearning presents the best option for organizations to scalably and effectively train their workforces. 

But the staggering impact of the coronavirus on corporate training — McKinsey estimates 50% of in-person programs in North America (and nearly 100% of programs in Asia and Europe) scheduled for the first half of 2020 have been postponed or canceled — has made it clear that every organization needs to incorporate digital learning into their training strategy. 

We understand that rapidly moving to a completely online training environment while working remotely during a pandemic might be overwhelming.

To help companies now facing substantial gaps in their L&D programs adapt or replace planned in-person training with digital learning, we invite you to share how you are delivering effective employee training virtually during this crisis through our #LearnInPlace video contest!

How to participate:

1. Create a short video (1 to 2 minutes) explaining how your organization is continuing its training efforts virtually during the coronavirus pandemic. No need to worry about making it look like a professional movie — feel free to just use your smartphone or computer webcam!

Consider these questions when making your video:

      • How did your organization deliver employee training before COVID-19?
      • How has your organization had to adapt its training efforts in response to this crisis?
      • What tools or programs does your company use to deliver learning content virtually?
      • What have you personally learned as a result of your efforts to transition your organization to a completely online training environment?

2. Post your video to social media by 15 May, making sure to tag OpenSesame and include the hashtag #LearnInPlace.

      • Tag us on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn: @OpenSesame
      • Tag us on Instagram: @OpenSesameNow

3. Don’t forget to follow OpenSesame on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram, where we’ll be sharing our favorite #LearnInPlace submissions and more tips for achieving success with elearning.


The person who submits the winning video chooses from these prize options:

      • 2 complimentary passes to the 2020 OpenSesame User Conference 13-15 October in Portland, Oregon (value of $598); OR
      • $500 to use toward the professional development training of your choice
