Thought Industries | January 30, 2023
The enterprise learning platform Thought Industries for partner, customer and professional training recently launched its new online learning Academy powered by the world's only completely customizable headless developer LMS framework, Helium. It was established in 2022 at the company's annual customer and LMS industry event, Cognition22.
For Education to develop a new Academy site, Thought Industries works with Verified Helium Partner. Helium addresses a pain point from the past making it simpler for designers and developers to collaborate with many companies looking forward to customizing and extending the capabilities of their LMS systems. In the past, designers either made mockups and were then met with constraints when developers had been putting them on the screen, or they viewed the system first and then created limited mockups to match. Both approaches are hard, expensive, and take a lot of time.
The Thought Industries Academy has different products and services under one roof for learning professionals willing to get more of the potential of the company’s learning platform and programs. Customers of Thought Industries will find a wide range of self-service resources, including new content, new featured resources and FAQs are put in the front and center to simplify the learning experience.
Philip Cahill, Thought Industries Senior Director of Customer Education, said, "It was crucial for us to be our own first customer in creating the new Ti Learning Academy. Helium gave us all the flexibility we needed to meet the needs of learning professionals worldwide." He added, "With Helium, we were able to build our new Academy without any limits, and as an added bonus, it gave us a great opportunity to show customers what Helium can do."
