the new schoox experience

A message from Schoox co-founder and CEO, Lefteris Ntouanoglou.

When we founded Schoox twelve years ago, we had a bold vision—to revolutionize workplace learning by putting learners at the heart of everything we do. Today, I’m thrilled to introduce the next generation of our people-first learning platform, which brings that vision to life in exciting new ways.

At Schoox, we believe that when technology nurtures curiosity and ignites potential, great minds are unleashed to achieve extraordinary things. This core belief has driven a multi-year research and development journey fueled by insights from our global community of more than 3,000 customers and 20 million learners.

The result? A learning platform that breaks down barriers and opens up new frontiers in learning and talent development. Let me share with you some innovations we’re introducing that will have a profound impact on the way your people learn and get work done:

Revolutionizing the Learner Experience

At the heart of our platform is a fully reimagined learner experience that empowers employees to take ownership of their professional development. Learners can now view training courses and content prioritized by training objectives, they can toggle between assigned and self-enrolled learning, explore content recommendations aligned with their interests, and track progress toward skills mastery and career progression. These enhanced learner experiences foster motivation to engage in training progress.

Captivating Learners and Keeping them Engaged

Keeping learners engaged is crucial for effective knowledge retention and skills development. That’s why we elevated the course experience with immersive, distraction-free viewing and collaborative social features, making training more engaging, interactive, and fun. As workforces begin to skew younger and more digitally native, delivering training that resonates with learners and encourages them to participate is critical to the overall success of any business. 

The new “theater-mode” view of course content is a captivating, full-screen look at training content.

Enabling Learners with Real-Time Analytics

As we introduce a new Schoox experience, our fundamental focus is optimizing how learning connects to development—and bringing that information to the surface so learners can track their own progress and identify opportunities for growth. The new Analytics view for learners has dynamic dashboards, which illustrate progress, provide transparency about the overall impact of learning over time, and show tailored course recommendations, coaching, or additional activities to help them improve their skills so that they grow in their current role or future career path.

Analytics give learners a view into training progress throughout the new Schoox experience, especially in the career path and other development areas.

Connecting Learning and Development Through Skills

Perhaps our most groundbreaking innovation, AI-enabled skills mapping helps L&D leaders realize the full potential of connecting learning to development. Our integration with Visier Skills Intelligence simplifies the skills management process and automates the connections between skills and jobs, and skills and content. With these connections in place, employees immediately benefit from improved course recommendations and training objectives aligned with their career and skill development needs. This gives organizations the power to proactively identify learner skill gaps, personalize learning paths, and surface learning opportunities that truly impact employee career progression.

Now L&D leaders can add skills with AI to surface suggested skills based on jobs or course descriptions, making the mapping process smoother and faster.

Our Commitment to Your Success

Your journey is our journey, and we’re committed to our customers’ success every step of the way. We’ve created a treasure trove of educational resources—including in-app guides, new knowledge base articles, and video training—to ensure your teams can hit the ground running. Our dedicated customer success team is also available to provide one-on-one support and guidance. 

The Future is Bright

This is just the beginning. As I look to the future, I’m optimistic about how this new user experience will make a transformative impact on workplace learning and talent development. Schoox equips businesses with everything they need to unlock the full potential of their people and drive real business results through engaged, skilled, and future-ready workforces.

Together, we’ll continue pushing boundaries, embracing innovation, and reshaping the learning technology landscape to focus on learners first. I can’t wait to see what great things we achieve together. 

Once again, welcome to the future of learning with Schoox.
