We are delighted to announce a new partnership with fellow eLearning company, Learning Nexus. This exciting collaboration will enable both businesses to provide a wider range of services to existing and new customers. The partnership will see Learning Nexus offering our own LMS-X platform and Traineasy offering Learning Nexus’s comprehensive catalogue of e-learning content.
LMS-X, which Learning Nexus will now be offering, has two key advantages; rapid deployment and a Netflix style video gallery to capitalise on modern learning behaviours.
The ability to rapidly deploy an LMS solution enables Learning Nexus to be much more responsive in the market. It is estimated that the new LMS will reduce implementation time by around 66%, allowing Learning Nexus and their clients to begin embedding a learning culture within their organisation in a much speedier fashion.
Learning Nexus are also keen to deliver platforms that complement modern learning behaviours. Pew Research Centre found that 70% of American adults use video websites such as YouTube to “figure out how to do things they haven’t done before”. In addition, searches for “how-to” videos on YouTube are growing at a rate of 70% year-on-year.
Those statistics, along with others, were all the evidence Learning Nexus needed to know that LMS-X was the perfect platform for the future millennial workforce.
Peter Howell, Managing Director of Learning Nexus said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Traineasy. Being able to deploy an LMS much more quickly will enable us to respond to the needs of our clients, and possibly support the more unique or demanding enquiries we previously couldn’t”.
There will be benefits for Traineasy customers too as we will now be offering over 200 new e-learning courses, which includes many in a bitesize format, with each course lasting no more than 15 minutes. In addition to the bitesize approach, additional learning resources will be created for each course, for an example an eBook, so that learners have more choice to choose a method of learning that suits their learning behaviour.
Tim Dyer, Managing Director of Traineasy commented: “We wanted to partner with Learning Nexus as we share a common ethos – to offer customers at all stages of their journey with us, service that exceeds their expectations and products that support modern ways of working. The Learning Nexus content range is learner-centric in design, up-to-date, and continuously expanding in response to customer demand.”
Within weeks of the partnership becoming official, we are already seeing benefits. Learning Nexus has already delivered LMS-X to a client who needed to be up and running within a short period. Meanwhile, we have been able to service enquiries for a wide range of content from GDPR to accredited food safety training. During the Covid-19 outbreak, both companies have found a way to meet the changing needs of the marketplace; from rapidly deploying LMS’s to supplying e-learning content now that classroom sessions have been put on hold.
