Celebrating our 20th anniversary led many of us at Skillsoft to contemplate all that we have learned during that time. We’ve seen technologies, toolsets and learning models evolve and redefine themselves. We learned that eLearning could not only become a viable medium for acquiring new skills but also become simply a better way to learn anything. We learned that when paired with other digital content assets, such as books and audiobooks, eLearning can provide unmatched richness and depth. We also learned that high-impact and human elements, such as online mentoring and virtual bootcamps, can retain the impact and interaction that was previously confined to the classroom. We’ve carried all of the items through to the products that we deliver to nearly 40 million learners around the world today.
