Skillsoft Announces Brand New Concept for Learning

Innovative Content Encourages Learning in Action Using Real-Life Situations

BOSTON--()--Skillsoft, the global leader in eLearning, has launched a brand new concept for online learning with its new and innovative Business and Leadership Skills content. This new concept introduces shorter and impactful topics – no more than five minutes. Moving away from instructor-led training to camera, Skillsoft has introduced scenario based, professionally acted role-play into all of its content. This new treatment brings the learning concepts to life in real world situations, to fully engage the learner.

This new concept provides a more theatrical feel, ensuring the learner concentrates on the actors, host, and key messages rather than the traditional learning environment. By having the actors role-play, users can learn by experiencing real world, relatable scenarios. This allows learners to focus on the key messages of the courses, enabling better learning, retention, and overall experience.

"Working with the world's largest brands we are constantly challenging ourselves to address the changing needs of the multiple generations in the workforce. We have a razor-sharp focus to build beautiful technology and engaging content," said Bill Donoghue, chairman and CEO of Skillsoft. "Our customers and their users have an expectation of the highest quality scenario-based learning, rather than instructor led, and this new concept is meeting that demand."

In 2016, Skillsoft invested extensively in a complete refresh of all Business Skills and Leadership content, resulting in over 1,800 micro-learning videos which will be released this month. A further 1,000 will be added to Business Skills and Leadership this year. In addition, Skillsoft had made substantial investments in new content over the past 12 months in IT, Digital Skills and Compliance. This adds to Skillsoft's already extensive content library and offers a variety of modality of content from ebooks, audio books, tests, assessments, to videos and courses.
