Skillsoft and Triple Creek, a provider of social learning and knowledge sharing software, are collaborating on an integrated solution to provide mutual customers access to Skillsoft’s library of expert content directly from Triple Creek’s social learning platform. Under the agreement, Skillsoft resources will be highlighted to Triple Creek’s River social learning participants based on factors as the competencies they identify and their social learning engagements.
“Incorporating key resources such as Skillsoft’s library is the next evolution of social learning, allowing us to bring people together for a common learning purpose, help them establish goals and provide them with relevant content to discuss as they collaborate and share insights,” said Randy Emelo, CEO of Triple Creek. The firms say their collaboration will help deliver content to multi-generation and dispersed workforces.
A 2013 benchmarking study by Towards Maturity found 88 percent of learners want to be able to learn at their own pace; 77 percent of learners want to engage with online learning; 86 percent said they learn what they need to know for work by collaborating with others.
