Partnership to Provide Mobile Corporate Training Modules via Magmito Platform
Stockholm, Sweden and Calgary, Canada – December 8, 2011 – DIDMO, architect of Magmito, the award-winning, cross-platform mobile application creation solution, and Success Associates (SA), specialists in providing innovative learning, employee development, training and coaching solutions for a wide range of companies, have partnered to offer a mobile extension of SA’s current distance learning platform, SkillBuilder.
“Our partnership with Success Associates showcases the power of Magmito as an m-learning platform by offering organizations the opportunity to assess, train and test employees on a device they carry with them everywhere, regardless of make or model,” said Angelo Biasi, DIDMO’s vice president of business development, North America. “Together, we have taken the lead in championing the evolution from corporate e-learning to m-learning.”
The SkillBuilder CORE Competency Learning System empowers organizations to develop the core transferable competencies required for effective job performance. This integrated learning system incorporates the cycle of assessment and learning to support the development of critical organizational competencies.
Key modules from the SkillBuilder system will be optimized for mobile devices and delivered as Magmito-generated apps. For example, training modules such as Management & Leadership, Customer Service and Resume Building will be offered that include training, video content and images as well as self-test quizzes. Employees will then connect to a mobile-optimized learning management site for more comprehensive skill testing to validate and track skill acquisition and job-specific competency development.
“With mobile Internet expected to take over desktop Internet usage by 2014, being able to provide training and development material to employees on-the-go via mobile delivery makes sense,” said Joel Wilkinson, chief executive officer of Success Associates. “With Magmito, we’re able to offer our clients employee development tools quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively and in the most convenient way possible today, via mobile.”
DIDMO and SAI will sell and distribute m-learning through existing channel partners and clients. The combined efforts will add value to existing distance education services and further allow accessible corporate training apps through relevant business application marketplaces.
