The partnership augments Skillsoft’s Technology and Developer portfolio of 23,000 multi-modal learning resources by allowing customers to license and deliver the WintellectNOWon-demand developer training solution on Percipio, Skillsoft’s award-winning learning experience platform. Skillsoft customers may also receive access to WintellectNOW through third-party learning management systems via Skillsoft’s Percipio Experience Services.
WintellectNOW, developed by some of the world’s best Microsoft trainers, speakers and technologists, features more than 500 courses, representing 500 hours of on-demand video-based content tailored for a variety of learners, from novice software developers to advanced technical experts. Beginning in spring 2019, Skillsoft customers can license WintellectNOW’s premier training on cutting-edge technologies, including blockchain, DevOps, data science, AI and modern web programming.
While learners will be able to deepen their knowledge with WintellectNOW courses through a modern learning environment, program administrators will have access to all learning data from Percipio, enabling them to view learner activity across content providers. This seamless, centralized reporting will streamline administrators’ ability to conduct audits, manage training records and measure the value of learning across their organization.
“As new technologies and programming methodologies are developed at a breakneck pace, it is critical for technology professionals to continually learn and gain proficiency in the latest advances,” said Jeff Prosise, co-founder and chief learning officer, Wintellect. “By partnering with Skillsoft, we are gaining access to a massive new population of enterprise technologists and developers, giving them the option to deepen their areas of technical expertise by using WintellectNOW on the same intelligent learning platform as their Skillsoft Technology and Developer content.”
“WintellectNOW’s premier developer training is an excellent complement to Skillsoft’s Technology and Developer content portfolio,” said Mark Onisk, chief content officer, Skillsoft. “Making WintellectNOW’s extremely technical, in-depth training available alongside Skillsoft’s expansive library of Technology and Developer content on Percipio supports our goal of accelerating time to competence by delivering a frictionless experience that supports learning in the flow of work.”
