The CrossKnowledge suite is a cloud-based technological platform made up of exclusive applications dedicated to the deployment of your training strategies. It allows you to implement blended learning and social learning programmes, to develop distance learning content and skills assessment programmes… or to organise combinations of these different types of project.More details of this software
It allows you to implement the following:
• blended learning projects using our Training Solutions technology;
• social learning projects using our Community Solutions technology;
• mentored learning projects using our Mentoring Solutions technology;
• professional e-learning content development using our Mohive authoring tool. … and to offer a new learning experience.
CrossKnowledge believes that such a platform must not be restricted to classroom and e-learning strategies, but must combine formal and informal learning (on-line dialogues, blogs, etc.), long-term learning paths and immediate training, and PC-based and mobile learning experiences, all built into a single Learning Portal.
