ellegro Learning Solutions invites you to try out our new iPad app called Legato. It’s free and available in Apple's App Store. Click Here to download.
Conceptually, Legato evolved from our desire to speak into the training and performance improvement space regarding mobile learning. Our opinion is that mobile technologies are best suited for performance improvement, learning augmentation and recreational learning (a topic for future blog) rather than simply converting instructor led training or eLearning for mobile consumption.
In addition, our team of learning professionals wants to partner with the learning and performance improvement community to contribute to greater effectiveness within training and performance improvement. In other words, we want to be part of the solution. For years, and even more so now that it is so easy to distribute one’s opinion, we have watched people talk about the ineffectiveness of the overall training and learning community. Of course, it is generally someone else that is at fault and rarely includes practical solutions. Legato is our first step at changing this trend.
Legato is meant to be helpful for all training and performance improvement professionals. This would include individual consultants, internal contractors, instructional designers, small, medium and large training firms, etc.
Practically, we have started with modules around delivery and project risk. Our goal is to create additional modules to support the entire development process from the performance improvement/training decision to analysis to design to development to implementation to evaluation.
We have designed Legato to be more than a notepad. There are plenty of apps out there that provide information and allow you to capture your notes. Legato is built to take advantage of the computing power of the iPad. At any point in the information collection process, whether in the delivery or risk module, you can access a recommendation based on the data that has been provided. You can also email that data.
Finally, while Legato began with the team at ellegro Learning Solutions, we want to extend the knowledge within the app to include the wisdom and experience of the entire learning community. This is why we've made the Legato app available on the app store for free. We look forward to working with others in the learning field to determine whether not we have the best questions, best recommendations and best user experience.
Our goal is to help the learning community make a difference through the use of mobile technology rather than just talking about mobile technology.
