RADNOR, Pa., Dec. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- KnowFully Learning Group ("KnowFully" or the "Company") a NexPhase Capital-Backed company, today announced a partnership with Red Flag Mania, an innovative e-learning solution that combines film, theory, and "whodunit" fun to empower learners to use data to solve complex problems and gain new skills. This gamified learning experience will become part of the course portfolio for Surgent IQ, the Company's online learning center that delivers upskilling and reskilling training for accounting and finance professionals, in the first quarter of 2021, with the opportunity to expand into other parts of the business later next year.
Red Flag Mania, co-founded by Kelly Richmond Pope, Ph.D, CPA, and experiential marketing expert Roni Jackson, creates richly produced educational courses that incorporate real people and real stories, increasing engagement and leading to a higher level of retention. Studies show that gamification increases motivation and productivity by up to 87% and ultimately knowledge retention, allowing students and professionals to pick up information faster. Red Flag Mania courses encourage learners to search for clues that reveal "red flags" which may be overlooked without this kind of deep investigation and critical thinking.
"Red Flag Mania has taken a unique, gamified approach to professional education," said Eric Cantor, CEO of KnowFully Learning Group. "We're thrilled about this partnership, through which we will help broaden the reach of a company created by two innovators who have successfully made topics such as forensic accounting and fraud incredibly accessible and engaging for accounting and finance professionals."
"Surgent is a terrific partner to help us bring our unique solution to new learners. The types of skills we are fostering through storytelling and immersive experiences are critical for professionals in many industries, but especially so for accounting and finance professionals," said Kelly Richmond Pope. "We look forward to growing this partnership as we continue to produce more of our engaging and critically important curriculum."
Red Flag Mania's innovative curriculum complements KnowFully's approach to education, which focuses on personalizing the learning experience to each individual's needs to drive more efficient and meaningful learning outcomes. This approach is evident across, KnowFully Company, Surgent's portfolio of solutions that span all stages of an accounting or finance professional's career, from Surgent Exam Review, which offers award-winning test prep courses for the CPA Exam, EA Exam, CMA Exam, and others, to Surgent IQ, which delivers skill-building training for all career stages, and Surgent CPE, a provider of best-in-class continuing professional education (CPE) for CPAs and other tax and financial professionals.
