Digital learning leader recognised as one of seven vendors in new Gartner report in the Learning Experience Platforms (LEPs) category
LONDON, May 31, 2018 – Coorpacademy, the leading user-centric corporate digital learning platform, has been recognised by Gartner as a Representative Vendor in its latest look at the corporate learning suites market.
In its May 2018 Gartner Market Guide for Corporate Learning Suites report, the company is recognised as a Representative Vendor in the ‘Learning Experience Platforms’ category, with the study evaluating the landscape of corporate learning suite suppliers for the enterprise.
The study’s author, the organisation’s Principal Research Analyst Jeff Freyermuth, introduces the Learning Experience Platform (LEP): “A growing number of buyers are demanding next-generation systems that are open platforms (i.e., LMS and content-agnostic).”
One of the report’s recommendations: “Place the learner’s experience and the solution’s usability at the top of the priority list for any new learning project. Evaluate emerging LEPs to enhance (or extend) existing LMS platforms.”
Founder of Coorpacademy, Jean-Marc Tassetto, has welcomed Gartner’s report on the learning market, and feels that Gartner Market Guide for Corporate Learning Suites represents deep insight in terms of the way the corporate training landscape is evolving.
“We believe this study reflects the dynamic, emerging corporate learning ecosystem, where LEPs have become a useful solution category, clearly differentiated from the traditional LMS,” he notes. “That’s a shift from an administrator centric to a learner centric approach – which is part of our vision at Coorpacademy and why we created the platform, and why our approach secures user engagement levels of more than 80%.”
“We feel the analysis also highlights the importance of a focus on the learner’s experience, reflecting the reality of how people learn, always available remotely, increasingly via mobile, and at the learner’s convenience and own pace – as well as proven engagement techniques such as video, gamification, collaboration.”
“We believe these are all vital elements to the Coorpacademy offering and experience that enables our customers to solve their most demanding of HR challenges: user engagement.”
“Coorpacademy continues to build momentum precisely because many HR and Learning and Development leaders are deciding user-engagement levels of 10-20 percent are quite simply no longer acceptable.”
Coorpacademy is a growing force in the provision of user-centric corporate digital learning solutions. Business e-learning has traditionally been top-down and administrator-centric, but since its creation in 2013 Coorpacademy has by contrast focused on the learner experience and increasingly in-demand ‘softer’ digital, people and knowledge working skills, supported by the flipped pedagogy model and innovations in instructional design (gamification, microlearning, adaptive and social learning) developed in collaboration with the research labs of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL). Coorpacademy now supports a global community of 700,000 corporate learners, 40% outside Europe.
