Good training should be shared

New for the learning industry: materials are viewed online and users can review and evaluate the content—a similar model to YouTube. By publishing content training professionals, neutrain provide others with useful examples and guidance whilst at the same time reaching an audience of learning professionals interested in training.

Users are not required to log in to view content. neuTrain doesn't mine data for mailing lists, run email campaigns or advertising. Having viewed the sets of materials, users can purchase them. Eighty percent of the download fee goes directly to the contributor, with neuTrain taking twenty percent to cover running costs.

neuTrain founder Lucy Standing predicts strong demand from learning professionals world-wide, who are happy to share good content and best practice rather than researching and creating courses which others have already produced elsewhere.

Lucy explains, “The L&D world is changing: time and financial resource are rare commodities. Our simple aim is to help people deliver performance by sharing free, reviewed learning material. I firmly believe that access to knowledge should be easily available and unconstrained by commercial interest. We offer a straightforward, no nonsense approach to improving training efficiency while boosting the online exposure of those involved.”

Comments learning and development industry leader Donald H Taylor, “neuTrain has something new to offer. I’d recommend any area where learning professionals can go to share. It’s vital that we move from being the gatekeepers for information to the people who take information and add value to it. We do that best by not reproducing something that has already been produced many times elsewhere but by looking at the best that is out there and add our expertise, our value, our insight. That way we’re doing the best job for our organisations.”

Steve Whiddett, managing director, WHE-UK and chair of the Association of Business Psychologists says, “I view neuTrain as a natural partner. I’ve always worked on the principle that if I have useful information for my clients, they should have it. They will come to me if they want the added value.”

Philomena Gray, Group HR Director, Publicis UK & Nordics, concluded, “As HR director across a number of European markets, I help accelerate business growth with smart talent practice. Reinventing the presentation wheel is not an option. Instant access to existing, reviewed material is a valuable asset. I like NeuTrain’s approach.”
