We’re very pleased to announce that, after several months in the waiting, we’ve just launched our brand new Skillsology website. We’re moving out of our practical two-bedroom apartment into a beautiful, luxury, custom-built beach house. We think you’ll agree that it’s come on leaps and bounds from the previous version and we hope that the new platform makes it easier for you to achieve your training goals.
The new website combines improved usability, a more appealing design and new content (both written and video) for you to peruse. We’ve even got some BRAND NEW courses for you to get stuck into.
The answer to this is yes!
Since we’ve moved over to a new platform we’ve updated our Excel course to improve the quality, delivery and to include more functions. For example, we've expanded our section on PivotTables to include four separate units to make sure you cover everything there is to know on the topic. There's a new course diagnostics tool to help you focus your learning and concentrate on the topics you need. Our IQ tests have been adapted to challenge you and give you a more accurate picture of your proficiency level. We've reduced the test from 40 questions in 30 minutes to 30 questions in 15 minutes, covering more areas of the courses than before, and our computer adaptive system means the questions you're asked change depending on your previous answers to suit your ability.
Across the rest of our offer there’s a revamped course landing page - including some BRAND NEW SUBJECTS:
Our new dashboards let you view and select any of the modules in our courses so you can skip areas that you feel confident in and keep track of your progress. We’ve also created certificates of attainment, which can be generated at any time, showing the date you completed each of your modules and the time it took you to do so. Great for reviewing your performance.
Unfortunately, your individual course records will not be carried over to the new website. But don’t worry, our improved navigation system means that you’ll be able to view all of the individual modules in these courses and bypass anything that you’ve already completed. You won’t need to waste your time going over old material and there’ll also be new content for you to absorb.
Absolutely! You’re welcome to access the old site to review your current course progress or continue learning through that platform if you prefer. We’re going to let you keep access to both platforms so you can choose how you’d like to complete your training.
Now that the courses are all web based it makes consuming them on a tablet or mobile device much easier.
