Online training solutions for business

Companies need to be agile and flexible in today's demanding environment. Employees often juggle between various roles and job titles, struggling to achieve or maintain high proficiency and productivity. Technological advances are transforming business models, demanding new skills from employees, who depend on corporate learning strategies to bridge that gap.

Disruptive changes are impacting the skills that will be in demand, soon. According to the World Economic Forum:

  • 50% of knowledge gained in a 4-year degree program will be outdate by the time the student graduates.
  • By 2020, more than a third of the desired core skill sets of most occupations will change to skills that are not yet considered crucial to the job today.

Create Leaders, Capable Managers and Effective Employees

Skills-based training is the ONLY solution for demands that are already changing the workforce environment. However, reskilling and retraining efforts may not yield the desired return if training is based on content primarily for today's requirements or past successes.

Below are some of the categories of skills that will grow in demand by 2020. Will you be ready?

Ability Platform is the solution for businesses like yours, with our award-winning, stellar online libraries. Our Learning content is presented as micro-learning modules, 10-minutes or less video lessons focused on improving skills. With libraries of 2,500+ videos, organized into 80+ Learning Paths (collections of related lessons put together by subject matter experts), we help you bridge the coming skills gap.

Engaging User Experience

Vendors offering off-the-shelf online content often tout the large size of the content as an advantage. However, they never discuss how many of their courses are opened and completed by learners. Many of these large content providers face challenges, such as:

  • Organizing their courses appropriately.
  • Updating their content in a timely fashion.
  • Offering a consistent user experience.

It's not surprising to discover their learner engagement and completion rates are very low. Often, courses cover large chucks of information, requiring longer time to complete. Materials presented as a collection of slides, with minimal interactive, lack excitement and bore employees.

The good news is that Ability Platform content has 3 to 5 times higher usage and engagement rates than the industry average. Why do we maintain higher rates? The answer is two-fold:

Content

  • Our content is based on micro-learning technology, presented as 10-minute or less video lessons.
  • Every 8 seconds, some movement catches the student's eyes.
  • Colors are pleasing, appropriate for the topic, with intro and exit music.
  • Professional actors present the materials with concise information focused on learning productive skills.
  • Short, concise lessons allow employees to schedule training whenever there are 10-minute gaps in their busy day.

User Experience

  • Ability Platform offers a clean, modern interface, starting with tiles that present the learner's training summaries and status.
  • Each lesson opens to a corresponding Course Home Page to launch the training, or access all assigned learning activities, including prerequisites, assessments, and surveys.
  • Lessons in a Learning Path offers a NEXT LESSON button to encourage "binge learning," when possible.
