Raptivity – Rapid Interactivity Building Tool: DevLearn Reflections

Just back from DevLearn and still reeling under its effect, I thought it would be the perfect time to share my experience with everyone. Though team Raptivity has been a known face at DevLearn, it was my first visit, and my maiden chance to experience it live, and I must admit, I was bowled over.

I was there with two other team members, for all three days of the conference. I attended visitors https://remontibudowa.com/
at our booth, participated in DemoFest and attended speaker sessions whenever I could grab a chance.

Harbinger, Raptivity’s parent company, completed its 25 years of operations on October 1 this year. DevLearn gave us a perfect chance to celebrate this occasion by giving us a chance to talk with many of our customers at the booth. Infact, I also got to meet some customers who have been using Raptivity since 2006, when it was launched. I was overwhelmed and so were they. Loyal customers are a real asset. Apart from these joyous meets, most of the visitors at the booth loved the idea of using Raptivity interactions seamlessly with various authoring tools and LMS.

Talking about speaker sessions, overall, I liked the depth and breadth of topics covered across DevLearn. It touched upon all facets of eLearning development process; whilst also catering to all levels of eLearning professionals, from novices to CLOs. Through dedicated tracks on gamification, videos and BYOLs, one could aim to become an expert in one thing or attend various different sessions to get an overall understanding of what was happening in the eLearning fraternity at a high level.

Coming to DemoFest, it took place on the last day of the conference, and for me, it was the best part of DevLearn. I loved the thrill of real world examples being showcased live. There were over 90 projects being showcased and ours was one of them. There were moments when I could actually relate a project to some of the sessions I had attended, and it was quite exciting to realize that connect.

On the whole, DevLearn was a fascinating experience for me, wherein I could learn different things, seek validation on different ideas, network with eLearning professionals from across the globe, and even meet some old customers.
