Prestigious International Awards Program Honors Outstanding Educational Technology Products and Companies
LOS ANGELES, Calif., – June 9, 2022 – EdTech Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies and solutions in the global educational technology market, today announced that Skillable has been selected as winner of the “Overall e-Learning Company of the Year” award in the fourth annual EdTech Breakthrough Awards program.
Skillable goes beyond training to enable actual “skilling” through hands-on labs that are built for “learning while doing.”
With the Company’s lab development platform, users can build scored hands-on labs once and reuse them over and over with use cases that include validated skills development, sales enablement, marketing and events, customer support and more.
The full-stack Skillable platform features flexible lab authoring and configuration tools, the option to create labs from scratch, the ability to get started quickly using a topic-focused template gallery, and the option to update existing labs independently or with the Skillable team.
Built into every lab is Skillable’s real-time scoring engine as well as activity-based assessments using multiple-choice questions, fill in the blank, and more that helps users determine if learners are mastering skills and performance testing that ensures learners gain the real-world skills they need to be effective. The platform also offers extensive reporting and analytics capabilities to help harness this new-found data as well as an integrated Learning Management System (LMS) platform for assistance with managing skilling plans – from global skilling programs to massive software releases.
“Organizations have had to transform the way they approach upskilling their employees, partners and clients – and when it comes to designing, developing, delivering then maintaining hands-on labs, upskilling can become incredibly complex,” said James Johnson, managing director, EdTech Breakthrough. “Skillable’s virtual labs platform addresses these complexities with a ‘breakthrough’ platform that is built to adapt quickly in the face of constant change. Hands-on labs with Skillable move enterprise teams from basic proficiency to mastery. We extend our sincere congratulations to the Skillable team for being our choice for ‘Overall e-Learning Company of the Year.’”
