Skillslive Social Impact "Technology for Good"

Skillslive Social Impact "Technology for Good"

Skillslive was established with a view to becoming a world-leading Learning Management System preferred by organisations with the need to disseminate knowledge based learning to a large numbers of stakeholders. Given the myriad advantages of utilising technology to reach a broad and diverse audience then the ability to create positive social change is something we that are passionate about, as we work towards influencing digital transformation. In addition to this, the company maintains Social Impact as a key Corporate Social Responsibility objective.

As a company, Skillslive is delighted to participate in opportunities involving digital learning projects where the learning objectives include teaching people to be socially responsible global citizens and generate long lasting change within a community or their circles of influence. We are passionate about this aim and have the resources to deploy platforms from the most basic to one which leverages a range of the very latest technologies to empower the organisation with data, analytics, cognitive computing, machine learning and tracking of the complete learning journey.

Our Learning Ecosystem Approach and Benefits

Our Learning Ecosystem Approach and Benefits

Since the first iterations of LMS platforms the supporting and surrounding technology has improved far beyond the expectations of the original pioneers of digital learning. These improvements are what enables us to integrate vastly more data, drawing from a range of systems to create a platform that permeates and records what we term as a ‘Learning Ecosystem’. More than a fixed environment, the word ‘ecosystem’ implies complex interactions, interdependencies, structured communities and a space in which the ecosystem exists

The value and relevance of soft skills as a key element in the development of a competent employee cannot be overstated. Given the nature of soft skills in the workplace and an identified gap for capturing or assessing an individual's competency, experience or compliance then a traditional LMS (teach and test) is simply not capable of meeting the needs of organisations’ learning objectives or outcomes. A learning ecosystem presents the best opportunity to engage across the entire organisation, its sources of relevant structured or unstructured data, which is mostly disparate, and between the individual or the communities in which personnel conduct their day-to-day activities.

In spite of ever-changing and attractive learning offerings and evolving corporate learning strategies, many Learning & Development and HR professionals are still struggling with learner engagement. Organisations must refine their learning offering and internal capabilities in order to meet the demands of the modern, connected Learner. The competition for attention is fierce.

One of the primary aims is to improve communities through the improvement of communications, connectivity and visibility of information. Doing so enables organisations to support research methodologies, professional engagement and human connections to strengthen the context within which these communities operate.

SkillsLive shakes hands with SAP for L'Oréal

L'Oréal Professionnel, Matrix, Redken, Kérastase and Shu Uemura will soon enjoy seamless LMS integration between the SkillsLive LMS platform and L'Oréal's accounting software, SAP. The integration is currently in a testing phase, with all signs pointing to a successful launch within the coming weeks.

Naturally, a considerable portion of the SkillsLive-SAP integration project is the application of business rules to ensure consistency with PPD's payment policy and procedures. These policies and procedures include a number of intricacies and it is critical to ensure that clients are invoiced consistently and accurately with particular respect to timing. SkillsLive's team implemented its experience in the field of business process mapping and software design and deployment to ensure each of these intricacies is addressed. Additionally, as L'Oréal's long time software partner, SkillsLive will continue to ensure the system adapts to changes or updates to the procedure, long after the initial deployment.

Skillslive Working in the Child Protection Space

Skillslive Working in the Child Protection Space

"Children are the world's most valuable resource and its best hope for the future." - John F. Kennedy

For any organisation that deals with children, their protection must be the utmost priority. Nothing precedes this. And within this immutable and indispensible objective, the implementation of policy, procedure and record-keeping are a vital part. These things are the providers of consistency, predictability, oversight and management for the organisation; without them, we are flying blind, running entirely on trust.

Skillslive is delighted to have the opportunity to contribute to the child protection space. Skillslive will implement the skills, knowledge and experience of its staff in the development of workflows and digital deployments that free staff and volunteers with rapid, worry-free on-boarding and empower administrative staff with records as well as big data and analytics at their fingertips.

Why Australia needs to get serious about Digital Records and Learning Management

Why Australia needs to get serious about Digital Records and Learning Management

Author: Evan Chapman, SkillsLive General Manager

When I first began working in a Registered Training Organisation in Victoria, I was amazed: And not in a good way.  Paperwork had the administration offices packed and struggling for space.  Staff spent hours labelling forms and moving them between various colours of manila folder.  Filing cabinets and document storage boxes were stacked in teetering piles right up to the ceiling.

If compliance is a word that causes eyes to roll at your organisation, digital solutions are precisely what you ought to be exploring. And you should probably have started yesterday. It’s never too late to make improvements to your business processes, and we’re here to help!  SkillsLive’s commitment is to help bring Australian business out of this quagmire and into the future.  If you prefer to be on the leading edge of this trend, let’s start the conversation.
