The smartphone era has ushered in the adoption of bite-sized learning. A few of the well-documented and wide-ranging benefits of this learning include: higher rates of learner engagement, the option to learn on the go, and a format that is easily digestible. The learning landscape is constantly moving forward; make sure you’re moving with it.
We provide an off-the-shelf suite of online training courses that enables teams to up-skill and keep up to date with topics including communications, media, digital marketing and writing skills.
We have over 100 bite-size online training courses readily available, with two new courses added every month.
Our courses contain a mixture of graphics, audiovisual interactions, and quiz questions that make the learning process easy, enjoyable and interactive. We avoid the use of industry jargon, keeping the tone conversational and informative.
We also offer skills audits to assess a team’s confidence and capability in each area of the skills we cover.
