This past August, we published our eBook "Best Practices for Launching an LMS." Last week, we discused the first step in the LMS launch process, Defining and Scoping. Today's post will be focusing on the second step, Planning.
In this edition of our Ask a CSM series, we're chatting with Sean Pinegar, Chief Customer Officer & Co-Founder of Tenfold.
With the rise of video learning, more and more training professionals are looking to jump in and try creating videos for their own courses. Video content ranges from simple software tutorials to advanced lectures with complex concepts, and they're published with various amounts of editing and production. Instructional designers who are new to video ask for tips and tricks all the time, so I’ve compiled a few of them that can help elevate your video content and make the creation process much easier.
I'm very excited to welcome the newest member of our sales team, Bill Lawler. Bill has a ton of experience leading SaaS sales organizations at companies like DocuSign, Pitchbook and Socrata. He'll be leading the revenue team here and has already made tremenedous contributions, which makes my life as a marketer way easier :)
Coincidentally, Bill was a customer in his former life, having purchased Skilljar at his previous company. He loved us so much he just had to come work here!
We decided to crunch some of the numbers to bring you data on training completion rates and how different factors in your courses and content may affect them. The data presented here can be used to help you set goals for course completion and build your content strategy.
We're very excited to welcome our new Web Development Engineer to the team, Chip Cressman! Chip was previously working as a consultant, assisting a variety of clients with their web development needs. At Skilljar, he will be joining the dev team as the primary front-end developer, working on the app, the marketing website (which I'm stoked about), and other web-based initiatives.
Earlier this month we released our new eBook "How to Build a Customer Training Team." We covered common roles found on training teams and why each one is important.
In this post, we'll specifically discuss the Training Operations role and why it's important.
I'm very excited to welcome Erynn Williams to the Skilljar team as our new PR & Marketing Intern!
Erynn is currently a senior at Seattle University majoring in Strategic Communications. She'll be helping me this school year with a variety of marketing activities, including media relations, awards and speaking opportunities, general brand building, and lead generation campaigns.
As a previous Communications major myself, I'm excited to show Erynn how we apply the things she's learning in the classroom to the real world.
