DevelopMentor, a leader in training professional software developers, today announced the general availability of LearningLine, a new online collaborative learning platform that it has been testing for the past year with customers such as Qualcomm, Intel, ESPN, Blackberry, Resound and others.

LearningLine is a new approach to learning drawn from many observations of DevelopMentor’s clients. According to CEO Mike Abercrombie; “Training is a challenge for every company one way or another, whether scheduling, resourcing, budgeting, scaling, retention or proving ROI. LearningLine is the result of re-thinking how we help our customers with their issues.”

“LearningLine creates a very different learning experience that draws students into a community of subject matter experts. There is tons of great information online and we felt it is more important to help people use that information rather than just repeat it, so we incorporated it into LearningLine courses.”

“Most online learning skips the human connection that the students need to make the leap to doing real work, so we focused on scaling the instructor connection so students can submit work and receive feedback from instructors.”

“In a professional environment, training content alone is not enough, because employees cannot use what they learn without guidance from their employer, and support from their peers. LearningLine is a platform for employers, staff and instructors to collaborate on making people productive in their own environment.”    

Clients can configure LearningLine for their needs, whether simply taking courses or designing a global proprietary training program for their company. All learning can be instructor-supported and scalable for their organization. LearningLine also provides several ways to confirm students’ progress as they learn.

LearningLine has enjoyed positive feedback from its beta users including Trang Vu at Qualcomm who says; “The course materials (read blogs, videos, assignments) are precise, get to the point, easy to understand and follow. The instructor is very helpful. It’s great!” Jack Moorhead of ExamOne says; “I enjoy the varied resources that keep the learning fresh.”
