CrossKnowledge is proud to announce the launch of the new version of CrossKnowledge Academy, the community portal for training professionals.
More modern and more dynamic, the portal has been extensively updated both in terms of design and functionalities. New features include the “members” and “groups” sections, which make the platform into a powerful professional social networking tool.
Since it was launched in 2010, CrossKnowledge Academy, a ground breaking community website, has offered our clients a range of services including a complete training program for CrossKnowledge solutions. The collaborative platform also encourages interactions between clients from around the world, and centralizes all the relevant functional and technical information and documentation (user guides, new versions, best practices, etc.) Available in French and English, it now has over de 5,000 subscribers.
A new face
The graphic environment of the portal has been totally redesigned to make navigation smoother and more user-friendly. The main sections – training, blogs, resources, solutions feedback – have been restructured to organize and present content in a way that optimizes the all-round user experience.
New features: “Members” and “Groups”
The aim of CrossKnowledge Academy still remains the same: to be a place for interaction, discussion and networking between peers. To offer even more extensive collaboration, two new sections have now been added: “Members” and “Groups”.
The Members section features a member directory, allowing users to contact each other directly to ask questions or share their ideas about particular subjects.
The Groups tab allows members to take part in discussion groups on specific themes, to share best practices relating to solutions, to discuss new training approaches, to talk about the challenges of Mobile Learning, and so on. In addition, users can launch interactions by creating new discussion groups.
