Skillsoft's mobile solutions enable organizations to support continuous learning that aligns with business objectives

NASHUA, N.H.--()--As today's workplace adapts to a more mobile generation of workers, Skillsoft is meeting the growing demand for on-the-go learning by driving mobile initiatives across a wide product portfolio. Skillsoft's mobile solutions provide access to assets wherever employees learn best, ensuring content is available at the point of need which is especially important for today's 73 percent of organizations that are actively engaging in mobile learning.

Within its suite of mobile learning solutions, Skillport 8 Learning Management System (LMS) features a learning experience that is optimized for tablet delivery. The mobile backbone of Skillport 8 gives organizations confidence in devising and deploying mobile learning programs that can immediately drive the development of their workforce. Skillport 8 also provides access to a full library of mobile-friendly learning content and other assets including more than 8,000 videos, 40,000 books and 1,000 tablet-friendly business skills courses. In addition to Skillport 8, Skillsoft offers full custom content capabilities and rapid content assembly tools, such as Skillsoft Dialogue Design, which allows organizations to quickly create and publish their own content for time-critical business initiatives.

"Today's generation of workers is used to having information instantly available at their fingertips. Employees want to be able to use their tablets and smartphones and, as user preferences change, it's important for learning programs to evolve in tandem," said John Ambrose, Senior Vice President, Strategy and Corporate Development, Skillsoft. "Mobile learning is key to breaking down barriers in participation and engagement of employees within changing workforces. Whether it's sales teams working through development plans while in the field or traveling executives accessing on-demand content to refresh their skills before a big presentation, mobile learning enables a smarter workforce, no matter where they are."
