London (UK), May 2020 - Two of the UK’s longest-standing eLearning companies, Learning Nexus and Traineasy, have embarked on a partnership that will enable both organisations to provide a wider range of services. The partnership will see Learning Nexus offering Traineasy’s LMS-X platform and Traineasy offering Learning Nexus’s comprehensive catalogue of eLearning content.
The LMS-XTM platform, which Learning Nexus will now be offering, has two key advantages: rapid deployment and a Netflix style video gallery to capitalise on modern learning behaviours.
The ability to rapidly deploy an LMS solution enables Learning Nexus to be much more responsive in the market. It is estimated that the new LMS-X will reduce implementation time by around 66%, allowing Learning Nexus and their clients to begin embedding a learning culture within their organisation in a much speedier fashion.
Learning Nexus are also keen to deliver platforms that complement modern learning behaviours. Pew Research Centre found that 70% of American adults use video websites such as YouTube to "figure out how to do things they haven’t done before". In addition, searches for "how-to" videos on YouTube are growing at a rate of 70% year on year.
Those statistics, along with many others, were all the evidence Learning Nexus needed to know that LMS-X was the perfect platform for the future millennial workforce.
Peter Howell, Managing Director of Learning Nexus, commented, "We are delighted to be partnering with Traineasy. Being able to deploy an LMS much more quickly will enable us to respond to the needs of our clients, and possibly support the more unique or demanding enquiries we previously couldn’t."
Traineasy will now be offering more than 200 eLearning courses and have access to Learning Nexus’s 'Learning Choice Programme'. This programme will see a huge number of existing eLearning courses being put into a bite-size format, with each course lasting no more than fifteen minutes. In addition to the bite-size approach, additional learning resources will be created for each course, for an example an eBook, so that learners have more options to choose a method of learning that suits their learning behaviour.
Tim Dyer, Managing Director of Traineasy, commented, "We wanted to partner with Learning Nexus as we share a common ethos: offering service to our customers at all stages of their journey with us that exceeds their expectations and products that support modern ways of working. The Learning Nexus content range is learner centric in design, up-to-date, and continuously expanding in response to customer demand."
Within weeks of the partnership becoming official, both parties are already seeing benefits and additional interest in their services. Learning Nexus has already delivered the LMS-X platform to a client who needed to be up and running within a short period. Meanwhile, Traineasy is enjoying being able to service enquiries for a wide range of content, from GDPR to accredited food-safety training. During the Covid-19 outbreak, both Learning Nexus and Traineasy have found a way to meet the changing needs of the marketplace; from rapidly deploying LMS’s to supplying eLearning content, now that classroom sessions have been put on hold.
Sarah Lambie, Director of Business Development at Traineasy, observed, "For many organisations, now is the moment to deploy an LMS, as it can be used to connect, support, and upskill employees forced to be working from home. Employee’s own videos of them knowledge sharing in LMS-X’s video gallery is an exciting opportunity for customers we are speaking with at the moment."
