The way people learn is continuously evolving, especially in the age of digital content. Christian Smythe, Head of Content and Partner Strategy
New York, NY (PRWEB) November 17, 2016
BlueBottleBiz, the leading collaborative learning platform for business professionals, today announced its partnership with Knowledgemotion, the London-based edtech company behind the world’s largest video library for education – boclips.com. With the 500 titles provided through the partnership, BlueBottleBiz members have access to brief informational videos covering business planning and reporting, engagement, marketplace trends, sustainability and more.
By combining business content in multiple languages and formats, with professional network and collaborative tools, BlueBottleBiz offers global employers opportunities to support structured informal learning in the workplace. Since employees are 75 percent more likely to watch a video than to read text (Forrester Research), the addition of Knowledgemotion’s video titles will further empower employees to learn through their preferred methods.
“The way people learn is continuously evolving, especially in the age of digital content,” said Christian Smythe, head of content and partner strategy for BlueBottleBiz. “Learning, specifically in business settings, is no longer about sitting through courses or being assigned chapters in a book. Rather, it’s shifted to become much more self-directed, based on types of content and the format in which content is delivered. That is why we place such value in our relationship with Knowledgemotion. They’ve helped round out our library to offer even more video, available in short snippets – making content easily digestible for busy professionals.”
The partnership with Knowledgemotion serves as a pipeline to expand video content within BlueBottleBiz throughout the next year, with videos from specialist corporate learning providers EL Consulting, XKA Digital and Sustainable Business Solutions.
“This partnership will provide an exciting opportunity to enrich the wonderful BlueBottleBiz learning environment with engaging video tutorials, expert advice and how-to guides,” said CEO and founder of boclips, David Bainbridge.
The announcement of the partnership with Knowledgemotion comes shortly after partnerships with Kantola Training Solutions, Nolo and Vado, Inc. So far in 2016, BlueBottleBiz has added more than 10,000 books, videos, lean learning modules (called Discovery Paths), and other resources to its business library – thanks to ongoing partnerships with content providers.
