NovoEd Launches Next Generation Of Its Learning Platform

SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- NovoEd, creator of the online platform for the modern learner, announced the new release of its NovoEd Learning Platform.  This latest release offers an elegant new UI and mobile-first experience with enhanced learning capabilities to the solution already trusted by 1.3 million users. 

NovoEd is the learning platform for the modern workforce. NovoEd enables customers to deliver more engaging learning experiences that transform their business. The modern, mobile interface provides a consumer-grade experience, on-demand from any device. The platform seamlessly integrates media types to promote deliberate practice and active learning. An effective and experiential approach allows for applied project work and collaboration in small groups. Small group interaction triggers social learning, which boosts effectiveness and increases accountability. A social, engaging environment prompts learners to interact in context and share their work in project galleries and learner profiles. Learners are able to extend learning beyond the course with peer-to-peer connections and feedback from peers and mentors. Powerful Reporting and Management tools provide secure, real-time data for a detailed view of learner engagement and content quality. The platform integrates with existing enterprise systems.

"NovoEd has been a fantastic partner as we grow our online learning programs," said Suzanne Gibbs Howard, the Dean and Managing Director of IDEO U, IDEO's online school for Creative Confidence.  "We are delighted to be a strategic partner early in the process.  It's clear that NovoEd is designing with today's learner in mind."

IDEO is joined by both higher education and commercial customers, including Stanford, Wharton, Comcast and ING Bank, who are expanding their capacity to meet the learning and training demands of busy professionals and a growing millennial workforce. 

"The changing composition of the workforce is forcing businesses to adapt how they develop their workers," explained Jeanne Meister, Founding Partner of Future Workplace and co-author of The Future Workplace Experience: 10 Rules For Mastering Disruption In Recruiting and Engaging Employees

"Millennials and Gen Z will be over 60% of the workforce by 2025; freelance workers already make up 35%. The mandate is clear: workplace learning and development must meet these workers where they are. NovoEd and its customers are leading the charge to drive this transformation in business and learning."

Learners can easily stay on track with the new consolidated dashboard, which centralizes tasks and activities across all courses.  Participants have access to the full functionality of the platform from their mobile device and can submit video assignments directly.  In addition, they can collaborate with peers and join community discussions anytime, anywhere. 

"Today's learners expect their learning platform to be as modern as their daily apps," said NovoEd CEO, Ed Miller.  "NovoEd delivers an experience that is immediately familiar, with social feeds, embedded commenting, and navigation with swipes.  Our new release is built for mobile from the ground up."
