A logical statement, but unfortunately, a paradox in our times where learning has rapidly become inaccessible while information becomes free.

A simple mission, but a highly complicated task. We now live in an era of lifelong learning where we cannot afford to merely sit back on a degree or certification we obtained years, or decades ago. With increasing competition and need for professional talent and skills, anyone seeking to build a career anywhere will need to continuously learn. This becomes more acute given the state of higher education systems that struggle to keep pace with the twin problems of contemporary content and a widening teaching deficit.
The challenge for organisations has become greater as they need to align professional competencies with business requirements on a near continuous basis. This scenario is only compounded by an employment problem (with no easy solutions) and a new economic reality for businesses across the board.
This is clearly not an easy area to disrupt or create improvements at scale, but it is imperative that we do so. And the necessary absence of one magic pill (or model) will require the intertwining of new systems of learning with traditional systems of teaching and certification. Answers to the problems will involve pulling together solutions involving technology, design, assessment, and content creation to create more outcome-focussed and scalable learning products.
We, at myLearn, are seeking to provide an answer to this challenge by building out a B2B focussed learning platform that is:
i) Short format & pathway oriented to ensure flexibility and learning outcomes;
ii) Affordability and scale driven to ensure ease of deployment; and
iii) Seeking to provide multiple learning options on one platform (courses, certifications & training).
