Percipio Opens Up to Content Aggregation and Customization

Award-winning intelligent learning platform now delivers tailored on-demand learning anytime, anywhere, with any content

BOSTON, January 10, 2018 - Skillsoft, the global leader in corporate learning, today announced the latest version of Percipio, the market-leading intelligent learning platform. Percipio now allows all types of content to be delivered across the organization, including custom and third party, as well as Skillsoft's award-winning, multi-modal content library. By enabling organizations to efficiently and effectively curate content from all sources, Percipio delivers on its mission to become the de facto standard in corporate learning - one platform, on demand, anytime, anywhere.

Custom channels can include content created by the customer, external free content, such as YouTube, and external paid content. Custom channels look and behave exactly like the 500 existing Percipio channels and are discoverable through browse and search, giving users a consistent experience across the platform.

Organizations will be able to create their own channels using the Percipio Content Publisher and all types of custom content, including videos, courses, books and resources, can easily be curated. By ensuring that all content is added to the library using Percipio's state-of-the-art curation process, organizations can deliver modern personalized learning paths, or channels, that can easily be found by learners in browse and search.

This latest release also allows organizations to customize the platform to create the ideal environment for their learners. Administrators can now tailor Percipio with their company branding, including logo, colors and imagery to deliver a more relevant and shared experience for their learners.

"Percipio was born from our desire to create a single learning solution that would address the needs of every learner and organization in one place, on one platform. When we released Percipio last year, we concentrated on delivering cutting-edge technology with a user experience that seamlessly presents our learning assets on demand," said Bill Donoghue, Chairman and CEO of the Skillsoft Group. "This next release delivers on the second part of that desire and our promise to open up the platform to other content. It is now possible to integrate custom and third-party content into Percipio. Combined with our 20 years of heritage and deep understanding of learning, we believe we have created a world-class, scalable, intelligent learning platform that transcends all learner types and allows for true on-demand learning, anytime, anywhere and with any curated content desired by the organization or learner."

"A learner spends too much time searching and trying to access content, which undermines the value of the learning as a performance support tool," said Michael Rochelle, Chief Strategy Officer, Brandon Hall Group. "Offering a list of content is not helpful. To be successful, learners need guidance and structure with learning recommendations tailored to their needs. By effectively curating content from all sources, Percipio creates a personalized learning path, which leads to faster and more effective assimilation of the learning into an individual's performance. Percipio's ability to curate content from all sources will accelerate the translation of learning into improved individual performance."

Coming soon: LMS Integration
Percipio will soon enable full integration with Learning Management Systems (LMS) using microservices to automate user management, authentication, content synchronization, tracking with xAPI and other functions. This new capability will deliver the award-winning Percipio learner experience to LMS users, increasing engagement and usage.
