McAfee - 2014 Best Place to Learn Winner

Emerging Technology

In 2013, McAfee was recognized by Dallas ASTD as a Best Place to Learn for their use of emerging technologies. Driven by their need to reach a diverse sales and technical audience, across multiple geographic regions, with a broad range of products, McAfee has relied on innovation technologies to reach their educational goals.

At our May 20th meeting, members of McAfee’s Learning teams will showcase some of their innovative strategies that have been most successful including how they:
  • Use technology to spread and support a learning and teaching culture
  • Implement simulations on products not readily available to technical agents, engineers and sales.
  • Develop an integrated infrastructure using Jive, SharePoint, SumTotal, WebEx and Brightcove to help employees easily navigate learning resources, provide performance support tools, share information through blog sites, and ultimately train all our employees to share their expertise

Speakers include:
  • Linda Smith, Senior Director, Technical Learning
  • Ruth Ellen Heaton, Manager, Technical Learning Media Programs
  • Tiffney Keller, Instructional Designer
  • April Jacobs, Social Learning and Collaboration Manager
