SkillSoft Launches All-New Indian English Course Content

29 September 2009

SkillSoft, a leading provider of e-learning and performance support solutions, is launching an all-new suite of Indian English online specialised content courses for Indian businesses who have both a local and global customer base.  The new suite reflects SkillSoft's commitment to deliver a premium level of culturally-conscious and user-friendly course content.

Rolling out the 30-strong courses over the next 3 months, the innovative Indian English content courses have been handpicked by SkillSoft in response to feedback from Indian businesses who wanted more choice in their e-learning repertoire.

The courses span a wide cross section from SkillSoft's e-learning courseware, ranging from customer service to leadership to project management – the most preferred and relevant business areas that will benefit local Indian industries such as government and local banks.  Courses include 'Integrated Initiation and Planning', 'Making Decisions Dynamically' and 'The Fundamentals of Exceptional Customer Service'.  The Indian English courses are built upon the same sound instructional design approach that SkillSoft has been using to develop online courseware for 19 years.

According to SkillSoft Vice President and Managing Director, Asia Pacific, Glenn Nott, the introduction of Indian English SkillSoft courseware demonstrates another clear example of SkillSoft's understanding and dedication to the Indian market.

"We are making significant, long term investments within India in not only delivering relevant, language conscious content, but also by generating employment avenues via localisation opportunities." he said.

Peter Kokkinos, SkillSoft's Regional Director, Asia, also noted that SkillSoft prides itself on its commitment in supplying a top sales and service team in India who are in tune with their customers' e-learning needs and requirements.

"We have not only a direct sales team in India to work with our Indian customers, but we can now showcase our product evolvement with the new specialised Indian English courses which will be of great benefit to local Indian businesses." he said.
