Skillsoft's New Course Experience Delivers High-Impact Microlearning

New Course Interface and Video Format Supports On-the-Job Application and Accelerates Speed-To-Skill Acquisition

Skillsoft, a global leader in learning and talent management, today announced its new content user experience, which will allow learners to quickly navigate bite-sized learning content and access supporting activities to drive knowledge retention and increase the value of organizational learning programs.

Recent research from Bersin by Deloitte suggests that workers only have one percent of their work week to dedicate to learning and development. In response to the increasing demand for quick, on-demand training opportunities, Skillsoft's new easy-to-use course interface places content at the center of learning. Trusted video content is not only at the centerpiece of the new experience, but users can also access other available resources such as job aids, assessments, practice exercises or help from subject matter experts to reinforce and apply the learning.

"In today's always-on, digital workforce, users increasingly expect instant access to short video content for moment-of-need support to more formal programs, such as certification," said Tim Hildreth, Vice President of Product Management at Skillsoft. "But video alone, without supporting resources for the reinforcement and the application of the skills learned, isn't enough. With this new interface, and leveraging Skillsoft's extensive library of video-rich courses, we're providing learners with easy access to crucial resources that we know are necessary for the knowledge to stick. The three to five minute action-oriented video topics are easily accessed and consumed when and where users need it most on desktops, tablets or mobile devices."

In addition to its extensive library of expert-led courses in technical and digital skills topics, Skillsoft is now extending its new video format to cover business courses in a wide range of topics including personal and interpersonal communications, optimizing team performance, critical thinking, emotional intelligence, and much more. Skillsoft's additional videos, along with the new content experience, deliver a solution that helps organizations cultivate a highly competitive workforce, and drive innovation and growth.

These enhancements to Skillsoft's platform enable enterprises to deploy affordable, scalable solutions to deliver high-value learning programs. Seamless integration into other systems across an organization allows customers to produce actionable insights and information about their workforce to drive strategic decision-making and easily maintain compliance with regulatory requirements.
