KMSI is pleased to announce that Major General Robert H. Scales, Jr. will be featured in its Live Webcast Â E-Learning Return on Investment (ROI) Web Seminar Series on April 12th. This online seminar will address why elearning projects are often disabled by technical integration issues, content compatibility issues, Learning Management Systems that simply wonÂt play the elearning content, and, worst of all, the cost of ÂunknownsÂ. The seminar will also address prevailing ROI calculations, why instructional design principles are important as a factor in both determining ROI and measuring what learning was actually accomplished, and why SCORM (Shareable Content Object Reference Model) is important when planning for and managing successful Government elearning projects.
Dr. Scales is currently President of COLGEN, Inc., a well-respected consulting firm supporting the U.S. Military and the defense industrial complex. Since retiring from the Army, he also served as President and CEO of Walden University and President of Capstar Government Services (CGS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Educational Testing Services. Prior to joining the private sector, Dr. Scales served over thirty years in the Army, retiring as a Major General. His last two assignments were as Deputy Chief of Staff at the ArmyÂs Training and Doctrine (TRADOC) Command and as Commandant of the United States Army War College. He is a sought-after lecturer to academic, government, military, and business groups in the United States, Australia, Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and South America. Dr. Scales is the author of several books on military history, serves as a senior military analyst for National Public Radio and Fox News Network and is a frequent commentator and consultant for other major media networks on issues relating to military history and defense policy. He is a graduate of West Point and earned his PhD in history from Duke University.
ÂKMSI is very pleased to have Dr. Scales contribute to our Live webcast series. He has considerable experience with E-Learning ROI issues and those who join the event on April 12th will have the chance to hear firsthand what he has learned regarding this important subjectÂ said Jack Lee, KMSIÂs President and Chief Executive Officer. Brett Wilson, KMSIÂs Vice President of Eastern Operations added ÂDr. Scales is one of the most recognized and authoritative figures on military training so we are fortunate to have his participation in this eventÂ.
