2016 was a year of great learning, growth and excitement at EdCast. Some of my personal highlights include:

As for 2017, we have hit the ground running by partnering with Josh Bersin, Principal and Founder of Bersin by Deloitte, to host a webinar where he will discuss if we are seeing the beginning of the end of the learning management system as we know it. It’s an important topic. We encourage you to attend – register now.
We have an amazing year of continuous innovation planned for 2017 and we look forward to sharing our progress with you. In the meantime, we welcome the chance to hear about your achievements and your plans for 2017. If it has been awhile since we discussed everything that EdCast now has to offer for your learning needs, let’s reconnect.
Thank you for your interest and support. Together we will make 2017 a great year!
All the best in 2017,
