This season we’re compiling the L&D classics that made the playlists of the most valued L&D heads. From the perennial favourite benchmark study from Towards Maturity to the LT Trends study from the up-and-coming Fosway group, launched back in April this year. We’ve compiled the white papers, downloads and resources that most L&D experts just couldn’t put down in 2016.
Track 1 Fosway’s all new state of the market study
This May, Europe’s number one L&D analyst business teamed up with Learning Technologies to create the long awaited state of the industry study that was deep in detail but delightfully light on language. We think that this new L&D resource was the one to watch in 2016
Track 2 Gamification without frontiers
Virtual reality got real for business learning in 2016 as gamification went mainstream and serious corporates took notice. Pokémon Go inspired the crossover by showing mainstream audiences what augmented reality can do, and the Society of Human Resource Management’s Michael Haberman helped reinvent the rules of the game for the HR industry by producing thought pieces like this. What’s the next move? In 2017 we’re hosting a webinar that will help you to deliver the winning game plan for L&D.

Track 3 The Time to Competency download
If time to competency was the earworm that didn’t stop echoing in our heads then we reckon that our very own time to competency white paper was at least partly responsible. Launched in September, it’s become our most downloaded L&D resource so far this year.
Track 4 Towards Maturity Benchmark
It’s the essential that has to be on any L&D best of compilation and the 2016 benchmark is out just in time for Christmas.
Track 5 How tech led training boosts sales
This white paper caught fire as soon as we released it early in 2016 and it’s been one of our top picks ever since.
Track 6 Compliance (the adaptive mix)
Remastered and remixed for 2016, compliance training found a whole new fanbase this year. The 2016 adaptive mix offers up a unique playlist of personalised training compliance. Staff reach compliance targets four times faster because adaptive courses edit out what learners already know, then fast forward to the key training points they need to practice.

Track 7 Mobile learning: What do you mean?
We understand the idea of eLearning and we get the concept of mLearning too. But who amongst us has not struggled to explain the difference to the CEO we report to, or the staff members we need to inspire? Thankfully, earlier this year the Elearning Centre came up with the Complete Guide to Mobile Learning. The guide offers up the clearest definition of mLearning available in 2016. It proposes a handy six point strategy to help you get mLearning off the ground in your business.
Track 8 Articulate: the Secret Storyline
The world’s leading course creation software changed all the rules in 2016 when it “Spotified“ and moved to ongoing subscription based pricing this November. It’s a chart topping move that’s introducing Articulate to a new generation of ambitious course developers looking to develop their own sound. But what will the next big names in course development come up with when they have all the Articulate tools to play with? Our up and coming Secret Storyline webinar uncovers the Lifehacks that 2017’s most adventurous course creators will want to know.
Track 9 Personalised learning
No one in the L&D business disputes the value of personalisation in learning, but actually rolling out a personalisation strategy can be daunting for the corporate training department. That’s why Christopher Pappas’ simple and straightforward help sheet “How To Offer Personalized Online Training Experiences For Your Employees” became an instant hit when released in March this year.
Track 10 Oh CloudRoooms: I can see clearly now
In a world where Microsoft products never stop changing, the Cloudrooms Office virtual online training centre has become a trusted classic. Now Microsoft users rely on it whenever Word, Excel, PowerPoint or Outlook become all click and no point.
