Plano-based TrainUp has kickstarted an online training portal called the TrainUp.com Learning Center, which allows business professionals to stay connected through free training content, according to a statement.
Those who sign up for the center will have access to monthly videos and learning content to encourage its users to continue expanding their learning and communication skills amidst of the ongoing pandemic.
After 15 years of offering learning solutions to more than 60,000 companies worldwide, participants will have access to free training videos, eLearning courses, and resources in four areas, according to a statement. These areas include business continuity, change and stress management, productivity and time management, and managing virtual teams/working remotely.
The platform pulls tips and tidbits from “leading thinkers” in order to start informative conversations with business professionals, entrepreneurs, small business owners, and anyone open to learning something new. The learning center is filled with content powered by some of the industry’s well-known live and online training providers, such as Skillsoft, BizLibrary, and the American Management Association (AMA), according to the statement.
While the primary goal of the portal aims to fuel interactive learning with accessible information, this learning tool creates more than pixels on a screen, according to TrainUp Founder & CEO Jeremy Tillman.
“This free learning portal is truly the reflection of our hearts and vision to continue to empower growth and learning, especially during this difficult time for all businesses including our own,” Tillman said. “I’m thankful for our wonderful partners for helping make this happen and can’t wait to celebrate the stories of impact and increased connectedness.”
The learning portal poses questions to initiate conversations between its users, then polls the most meaningful information mentioned in the interaction. Learners can also add which content they found important and rate it through a feedback mechanism powered by a platform called KnowledgeFlo.com. This feature helps users communicate and break down learning barriers while identifying popular content.
These features serve as a bridge connecting the conversations that have been put on hold. While social distancing continues to keep many people away from buildings once bursting with ideas and connectedness, this platform has found a way to keep those connections tethered, even if they are strung from miles away.
Get on the list.
