Rapid Learning Institute Re-Launches Learning Centers
Rapid Learning Institute (RLI) has officially launched its redesigned online learning centers for sales, leadership, workplace safety and employment law training.
After an extended beta test, RLI made the updated Selling Essentials and Compliance & Management Rapid Learning Centers available to all users this month. The re-launched site marks the most significant upgrade to the learning centers since their debut in June of 2008.
“This upgrade is all about improving usability for our clients and consolidating our learning centers into one central hub,” says RLI CEO Stephen J. Meyer. “Before the move we had multiple, independent web sites that each focused on a specific area of training. Now we have one central location where our clients can handle all their training and employee development needs. Think of it as one school building with many classrooms that users can visit as needed.”
Central to the new learning centers is the state-of-the-art usage reporting system. This new, top-down reporting mechanism allows clients to organize users in a hierarchical structure, giving front line managers the ability to see usage by their direct reports, while upper level management can view the entire organization.
Additional features in the new learning center include the ability to assign training to specific employees and the option to upload custom content as supplementary material.
“Our customers are thrilled with the new learning centers,” says Glenn Eckard, COO. “They’ve always loved our content and ‘chunked learning’ approach which lets them deliver focused training session in just six to 10 minutes. But with the new assign training feature, custom content upload option and advanced reporting tools, they can more easily manage their talent development programs and get training done in less time and with less effort.”
The re-launched Rapid Learning Centers are available at my.rapidlearninginstitute.com.
ABOUT RAPID LEARNING INSTITUTE
Rapid Learning Institute (RLI) provides online training and talent development tools for businesses, government agencies, nonprofits and educational institutions in the areas of sales, human resources, management, leadership and safety. RLI’s approach is founded on the idea that the best training programs are flexible. They must be easily accessible to organizations that prefer a self-directed learning approach for employees, but also support management directed training with material and management tools needed to ensure that training follow up happens and learning is applied on the job. The company’s signature five to 10 minute modules, called Quick Takes, support both approaches and help managers replicate in others the knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviors that drive performance. Based in Greater Philadelphia, RLI is an operating division of Business 21 Publishing, LLC.
