BLP Teases Knowledge Guru Fall Release at DevLearn


Fall is in the air. For us at BLP, that means it’s DevLearn season.

DevLearn is the premier learning conference for emerging trends and technology. Our team has attended DevLearn for years to learn about the latest, greatest learning solutions before they “hit the shelves” for most of our clients. Since 2012, we have attended the conference as exhibitors to show off the latest releases of our Knowledge Guru platform.

Each year we have attended DevLearn, Knowledge Guru seems to have grown so much from the previous year. But while we have added features and functionality, the core value proposition (help employees learn and remember things like product knowledge, policies and procedures) remains the same.

Here is where we’ll be, and what we’ll be doing, at this year’s DevLearn conference:

Pre-Conference Workshop:

On Tuesday 9/29, BLP President Sharon Boller partners with Dr. Karl Kapp to deliver their acclaimed workshop, “Play to Learn – Designing Effective Learning Games.” Participants will spend the second half of the workshop building a paper prototype of their own learning game. More Info.


We will show off the latest features of our Knowledge Guru platform in Booth 216 of the expo. You’ll be able to catch a glimpse of our soon-to-be-released smartphone app for Knowledge Guru as well as see the latest custom learning solutions we have created. One attendee will win a Knowledge Guru subscription each day. Let us know you’re coming.

Gamification Panel:

Sharon Boller is a featured panelist for “The Past, Present and Future of Games for Learning” at 3 pm on Wednesday, 9/30.

Learning Stage Session – Serious Games + Smart Implementation = Win:

My session takes four case studies from organizations that have successful used Knowledge Guru games and distills them down to seven practical implementation tips. It’s on Thursday, 10/1 at 10 am.


We will show off “Password Blaster”, a mobile game used as part of a large Info Asset Protection curriculum, at DevLearn DemoFest. DemoFest is on Thursday, 10/1 from 4-6 pm.

Lessons from the Trenches of Digital Game Design:

Sharon Boller will give her concurrent session on digital game design on Friday, 10/2 at 10 am.
