Early-birds: Save now on South African conference registration

Chloe MendoncaPosted by Chloe Mendonca

The first ever South African Questionmark Users Conference will start about seven weeks from now, so early-bird sign-ups will end July 14th.

If you want to save R350 on your conference registration, now is the time to register!

We are looking forward to welcoming customers as well as individuals interested in learning more about Questionmark to this event in Midrand, South Africa, on August 21-22.

We’re still building the conference programme and will provide much of the content ourselves, but customers enrich the programme by sharing case studies on successes and lessons learned. We are actively seeking ideas for these sessions, so Questionmark users are invited to check out the conference call for proposals and respond by 14th July.

Here are just a few reasons to attend this conference, hosted by Bytes:

  • Learn more about Questionmark’s Assessment Management System
  • Participate in assessment best practice sessions
  • See the latest Questionmark solutions and features
  • Improve your effectiveness in using Questionmark technologies
  • Hear about the product roadmap and influence future developments
  • Network with other testing and assessment professionals and learn from their experiences
  • Meet with Questionmark and Bytes staff

To learn more about the conference, visit the website.

We hope you will register soon, and we look forward to seeing you in South Africa.

Podcast: Assessments for Learning, Compliance and More

Posted by Joan Phaup

Online assessments  are used in many different way at Sanlam Personal Finance in South Africa. The company uses Questionmark Perception to test competencies and product knowledge. Assessments also play an important role in compliance. And in keeping with the company’s goal of engendering a high-performance culture, they are used on an ongoing basis to support learning.

Because Sanlam uses online assessments so extensively, my recent conversation with Sanlam Training Technology Consultant Mark Julius covered a wide array of topics. We spoke about how his organization uses graphics and animations to simulate on-the-job situations during assessments. We also talked about the special challenges of operating in countries with varying levels of internet connectivity and the ever-expanding importance of proving compliance with government regulations.

You can learn more by reading our case study about Sanlam and their use of Perception, which they use together with the SAP Human Resources and Learning Management System.
