BizLibrary has purchased AK Learning, which includes all of the latter’s current customers, intellectual property and products.
Part of the acquisition is a collection of more than 1,000 video lessons covering a range of important business and professional skills areas. Among the key content areas are human resources, project management, employment law, leadership and management.
Another key product acquired is the BoosterLearn training reinforcement platform. This is a unique product designed to help employees retain and apply important lessons by applying scientific principles to employee training. It delivers targeted pieces of content to employees at very specific intervals to dramatically increase learning retention. Boosters can be delivered for any training program to learners anytime on any device.
“I am particularly pleased about what this acquisition means to our clients,” says BizLibrary founder and president Dean Pichee. “Now we’re creating an unequaled combination of video training content and technology that ensures employees learn, retain and apply the knowledge they need to improve their performance.”
“As a researcher, I tried to develop products that are based on scientific principles of learning and retention,” says Art Kohn, president and founder of AK Learning. “I am pleased that BizLibrary is going to continue develop these products, because they bring a whole new level of expertise to what we’ve been doing, with scalable technology and business processes.”
