In addition to core functionalities, we add gamification of the learning process and our own learning methodologies.
¿How we do it?
We start by understanding how our customers will apply and use the skills to be developed. Based on their specific use, we design challenges to be solved by participants during the learning process. By using real challenges of our customers, we ensure the development of the required skills for the needed use.
Learning by Doing
We aim to develop hard skills and technical proficiency. Therefore, our programs are mainly based on practical sessions where knowledge and skills are applied in real-world and most needed use cases. We believe that practice makes perfect.
Online, Offline and Blended
We adapt to our customers needs by combining the most used learning methods. We recommend using online for theoretical content and offline for practical session. Our customers can use our Open edX platform or we can use theirs. We also provide remote assistance and tutoring for program participantes.
We promote self-learning as a key value of employees. Our customers select key employees for their talent to work with us in a custom-made program to develop new skills. We define the “learning roadmap” with needed skills, we assess the level for each skill and we coach for increasing the level of each skill using our content or others.
