The global body for workplace learning, the Learning and Performance Institute (LPI) today announces the launch of LPiLEARN - an online platform to help L&D organisations and professionals rapidly gain essential skills.
Built on technology provided by aNewSpring, and using the LPI Capability Map as its foundation, LPiLEARN aims to be the go-to resource for learning professionals who need quick, actionable guidance and skill building, all within one online platform.
Rapid upskilling for future-proof L&D
According to the global team of learning experts who led the development of the LPI Capability Map, there are 25 skills that are now seen as critical to the success of a modern, future-facing L&D function. LPiLEARN directly aligns with these skill areas and provides practical, moment-of-need resources that help learning professionals rapidly improve their knowledge and confidence within a topic. Where the Capability Map identifies skills-gaps worldwide, LPiLEARN offers to close those gaps for individuals, helping L&D people focus on developing relevant and contemporary capabilities.
LPiLEARN launches with over 500 pieces of curated content, each provided by respected learning experts and global organisations. Resources are included on the basis of their practicality and usability, and the platform is continually updated with fresh content as it becomes available. Users can access resources by skill area or by providing search terms.
Also included in LPiLEARN are two professional foundation certification programmes - 'Digital Asset Development' and 'Video Production for Learning'. By completing these certifications, users of LPiLEARN can gain valuable credentials and showcase their work via downloadable digital certificates and badges.
One Place, One Price
LPiLEARN is built on aNewSpring technology and, as such, offers users a complete online environment in which to undertake their learning journey. Users of LPiLEARN can take advantage of several tools to assist their learning - from planning activities, to collaborating with peers via native messaging, to automated reminders with MemoTrainer: a smart repetition engine that aims to increase knowledge retention and confidence.
LPiLEARN is available for individuals and internal teams, and licenses allow continual access to the platform and its content for 12 months. New content and certifications are planned to be added regularly, and will become available to licensed users at no extra cost. Licenses are renewable.
About the aNewSpring technology
The LPI worked with several key partners on the development of LPiLEARN. Most notably, the platform itself was provided by Rotterdam-based learning technology company, aNewSpring. As an LPI Accredited Technology Provider, aNewSpring’s platform was the natural environment on which to host LPiLEARN.
Edmund Monk, CEO of the LPI, said: "I am very excited to announce the launch of LPiLEARN, a digital academy uniquely designed for learning professionals. As we continue to analyse the data from the LPI Capability Map, we are seeing worrying knowledge-gaps in areas that we know are critical to delivering an effective and modern L&D function. By tackling these deficiencies head-on, we are helping learning professionals rapidly build the skills they need to future-proof their roles. LPiLEARN's core benefit is its focus. With so much information available on the web, it's hard for L&D people to find authentic, practical content that they can use quickly. The LPI team has worked hard to curate only the most applicable content from our industry's best thinkers and providers, and to make this available on one single platform. And by including professional certifications alongside this content, L&D people can gain valuable credentials along the way. LPiLEARN has the potential to revolutionise the way L&D professionals learn, and I look forward to seeing it deployed successfully in global organisations.
"In particular, I am very proud of the partnership with aNewSpring, who provided the techology platform for LPiLEARN. We chose aNewSpring because of its intuitive interface, rock-solid stability, responsiveness, and scalability. In addition, the support we received from aNewSpring's customer success team was exemplary. I have no hesitation in recommending aNewSpring's services to anyone loking for a highly sophisticated platform for their learning content."
Martèn de Prez, CEO of aNewSpring:
"aNewSpring is excited to see the launch of LPiLEARN. We believe it will really help learning professionals grow and develop their skills quickly and effectively. It reflects the shared values and common goals both companies have for a future-proof learning community. We are proud to provide the learning platform for LPiLEARN as part of our larger strategic partnership."
