How to unlock the value of legacy elearning
Posted on Aug 23, 2017
An interactive webinar explores ways to ‘upcycle’ old elearning courses to make them fit for modern learners.
The recording of the session, How to unlock the value of your legacy elearning, is available now.
Presented by award-winning learning provider Sponge, the webinar highlights the benefits of updating elearning content for organisations and their employees, and challenge the assumption that it’s simply an exercise in technology migration.
Liam O’Meara, Sponge’s Head of Sales and Marketing hosted the session. “It’s about releasing the value of your existing content so you keep the key learning points while refreshing it for modern technology and learner preferences, rather like upcycling old or unwanted furniture,” explains Liam.
“In the webinar, we looked at why you need to intervene to prevent old elearning courses being consigned to the delete bin of history and explain why a direct conversion to a new technology may not always be the best way to tackle the challenge. Our aim is to help learning professionals see legacy elearning as an opportunity rather than a headache.”
Elearning courses created using older technology have been overtaken in recent years by more responsive and agile tools that are better able to meet the needs of the modern workforce. One of the most widespread legacy technologies is Adobe Flash, which is being phased out by the end of 2020.
The 30-minute webinar includes insights from Sponge’s Adam Bartlett about his work on a major legacy elearning project for an international fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) company. Also offering expertise is Thomas Beale, Business Development Manager at Sponge, who has experience of content conversions projects across a wide range of sectors.
The webinar covers:
- Understanding the benefits of updating legacy elearning courses
- Solving the challenges of large-scale content conversion
- Identifying ways to rethink old elearning for modern audiences
- Learning from best practice examples at leading organisations
Webinar attendees were encouraged to share their own experience through a series of live polls and a ‘question and answer’ session.

“By the end of the webinar, you’ll have new ideas on how to maximise the value of your existing elearning. It’s about improving the learner journey to deliver more value and better outcomes by giving your legacy elearning a new lease of life,” Liam adds.
