“Digital Learning is not a game of technology or fanciness; it is more a race for efficiency and competitive advantage in the marketplace.
“It is now the duty of learning managers to adapt to these changes by up -skilling or re -purposing their employees.”
Rob Taiwo, the Managing Director, Phillips Consulting Limited (PCL), said during the company’s annual digital learning breakfast roundtable.
The forum deliberated on how emerging digital trends creates opportunities for business growth and how companies can successfully incorporate digitalisation into their business models.
He urged the Nigerian community to embrace digital trends as it presents opportunities for business growth and global competitiveness.
“Indeed, the World Bank stated two months ago that Africa must invest aggressively on digitalising its economy to meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals by 2030,” he said.
A Senior Partner at PCL, Paul Ayim, presented a video clip to show how technology was changing learning environments.
Amobi shared some experiences Stanbic IBTC had while trying to implement Digital Learning at her workplace, and how they handled setbacks.
