Learning gets personal with The IBM Skills Gateway

Share this post:

In support of our community of learners, we launched a refreshed IBM training website last April and immediately delivered value to learners developing IT skills. The new site had a sleek user experience and carefully curated content that went way beyond the traditional formal courses. We have now taken that site and transformed it even further to give you an enhanced personalized learning experience. Here’s presenting the IBM Skills Gateway : Explore, Learn, Succeed with:

More Content: We have expanded our learning assets from just courses to include informal learning assets like videos, tutorials, blog posts and trade press articles. The Skills Gateway now provides access to the complete portfolio of IBM Open badges as well more self-directed learning journeys to help you chart your skills progress.

Personalization: Learners customize their content by setting “User Preferences” on categories, asset types, delivery modalities, products, job roles etc.

IBM leverages cognitive search capabilities powered by Watson to surface relevant content based on the user’s preferences. Furthermore, this  search is iterative – so as IBM has more information about your learning preferences, the more personalized your learning content is.

Tracking: The “My Learning” dashboard will provide you with a central location to manage your learning queue , track your progress and as well as customized recommendations that align to your personal learning preferences.

The Skills Gateway is a dynamic, live site which is constantly evolving, both from a design and content perspective. We look forward to working with you to ensure that it delivers an experience that makes your personal learning goals achievable and enjoyable.
