9 Ways E-learning is a Better Option for Food Safety Training
by John Poulos, Co-Founder and Vice President of Sales, DiscoverLink

CHART Talks: "Brief Blasts of Brilliance" #25 - Micro-Learning and the Incredible Shrinking Attention Span

During my CHART Talks session in New Orleans, I shared the benefits of micro-learning and provided some tips and resources to help you reach your audience. Take a look at my video, I hope it holds your attention!.
