Getting down to earth with Seminar Manager

Learner focused Catalogs
Let’s face it. The way you present your catalog of learning opportunities is very different from the way it needs to structured for the team managing and delivering them. Our solution: we give you two interconnected catalogs, making it simple to promote and also efficiently manage enterprise learning.
Motivate with Badges
Badges are a simple yet very effective way of accrediting and gamifying learning. Assign badges with any number of criteria such as completing an activity, a course or a set of courses, or passing an assessment.
Use badges to achieve a wide range of operational objectives:
- Flexible, visual, recognition of performance
- Talent pools - identify pools of talent and specialists quickly and easily
- Motivate teams – badges build reputation amongst peers, and motivate learners to go that extra step
- Extended enterprise – badges enable companies to innovate with their networks, build trust and promote the brand with learning managed across the extended enterprise in a valid and verifiable way.
