LITE 2019 Schedule

Below is our schedule for LITE 2019, with full details of all the speakers and talks coming soon! Please keep an eye out for the full schedule.

Heather Bayfield & JJ Cranston

Administrate Learning Paths allow you not just to track learner progress over time but to sell bundles of Events. In this session, we'll take you through the improvements we've made since last LITE and give you tips on how to get the most out of Learning Paths. We'll also give you an insight into what we have planned for the future.

10am - 10:50am

Nate Smith & JJ Cranston

Recently we've been working to bring you a newly designed LMS. We've made the student experience cleaner and brought focus to what's next in learners' content. The LMS also now offers multi-brand white labelling and allows learners to browse a catalogue and self-register onto courses.

Nath Smith & Chris Palmer

We've been working on a WebLink solution which is 'hosted by Administrate'. This means we are better able to provide you support with your plugins and you'll also enjoy improved navigation and course discovery. Most notably, we've introduced a shopping cart, which will help you reduce customer dropoff, leading to increased sales. Smiles all round!

12pm - 1pm

2:40pm - 3pm

4:40pm - 5:30pm

5:30pm - 6:30pm

6:30pm - 10pm

Heather Bayfield, Nate Smith & JJ Cranston

Every year one of our most popular sessions is where you get to network with peers, giving you exclusive access to some other big players in training management, sharing industry best practice and Administrate tips and tricks.

We’ll pose group discussion topics to address key industry challenges and trends. You’ll discuss these in small groups before we share the wider findings with the room and compare responses.

This is a unique opportunity to network with other users of Administrate and discuss both strategic and tactical issues. You’ll share advice on how features and workarounds help you, whether it’s related to hitting strategic targets or solving your day-to-day woes.

This is another unique opportunity to learn from peers as well as influence the Administrate product roadmap as we look out into the future.

12pm - 1pm

Heather Bayfield, Nate Smith & JJ Cranston

This year we’re adding another exclusive session - the opportunity to help shape Administrate’s future. You’ll get a preview of what’s in the pipe and have your say on priority features, including our much anticipated Smart Scheduler!

Is the planning of courses a logistical nightmare for your organisation? Scheduling can be a frustrating, time-consuming and error-prone process. Inefficiencies can even affect the bottom line if it results in missing materials, unnecessary allocation of resources and a disappointing ROI.

You’re juggling multiple pieces of information, trying desperately to come up with the optimum plan. Venue availability, resource usage, instructor qualifications, the list is endless.

We want to change that by generating optimum schedules for you, simply by telling Administrate what needs to be available, where and when. The result? A perfectly planned schedule without the room full of screwed up paper and Post-its to clean up!

Join us as we dig into your deepest scheduling pains and discuss ways your life can be made easier with Administrate.

Our Speakers
