Great Content Matters
Our history of maintaining 90 percent completion rates for more than eight years is proof that great content matters when it comes to student outcomes.
Great content is like a great teacher — great teachers inspire you to want to learn
180 Skills courses are rich with photo-realistic illustrations, animations, and simulations to make sure every student enjoys learning and, more importantly, completes and attains mastery.
Great content is competency-based
Competency-based education is a method of teaching and assessment that is based on students demonstrating mastery of the skills they are expected to learn as they progress through their education.
Competency-based means that mastery of skills is the measure of success, not time spent in the classroom.
Once a student masters a competency, they move on to the next one.
This approach allows everyone to learn on their own terms, lowers stress for the student, and increases student success.
Great content is easy to organize
Our competency-based skills course library allows you to organize content into learning paths that align with:
- Job descriptions
- Organization-wide goals
- Departmental goals
- Academic programs
- Employee advancement opportunities
- Employee-defined learning goals
- Compliance-driven learning goals
Each skills course in our library teaches a single competency, making it easy for you to create learning paths for every learning outcome.
GREAT CONTENT teaches technical and employability skills
Our skills course library has more than 150 skills courses that teach employability skills competencies including:
- Group dynamics
- Conflict resolution
- Customer service
- Time management
- Technical writing
Baseline skills aren’t limited to “people skills”
On average, one quarter of the skills required for a technical job are employability skills. Employees with strong employability skills will be invaluable members of high-performing, collaborative teams.
GREAT CONTENT has no barriers to access
We believe that life is a journey that requires skills and that skills training should be there when it’s needed
