, a division of Logitech (NASDAQ: LOGI) (SIX: LOGN), today introduced a new online social learning platform to its partners: Lifesize Enablement Network (LEN)
. Training on Lifesize products and solutions is delivered in a series of short, engaging HD video episodes produced entirely in the LEN studio at Lifesize headquarters in Austin, Texas and is strategically designed for sales professionals, installers, administrators, support personnel and users.
“The days of traditional, not to mention boring, training aids like PowerPoint presentations and 3D avatars, are over,” said Wayne McCulloch, global director of education services, Lifesize. “Learning needs to be a fun and engaging experience. By delivering training via high-definition video, what we do best, we are taking training to a new level, unforeseen in the video conferencing industry.”
Along with an episodic video series on the various Lifesize solutions, LEN users have access to a wealth of interactive tools such as quizzes, downloadable sales assistance and personalized newscasts, which can be accessed on any browser or mobile device. While most episodes focus on the features and benefits of Lifesize solutions, ancillary episodes provide information on industry best practices, techniques and video conferencing etiquette.
One of the most groundbreaking features of LEN is the Lifesize Learning Exchange (LLX), a collaborative online social learning platform for community members to share information, create videos, download tools and ask questions about Lifesize solutions.
“LEN, with LLX, completely transforms the way we train and inform our partner community on Lifesize solutions,” said Sandra Hill, director of Americas channels, Lifesize. “By providing a unique social learning platform that partners actually want to use, we can enable our reseller community to deepen their understanding of Lifesize solutions. With these unique tools, partners can improve their selling techniques and significantly grow their businesses, giving customers the very best recommendation on how they deploy, manage and reap the benefits of HD video conferencing.”
Both LEN and LLX have recently garnered attention for their innovative approach to learning. LLX received the 2011 Brandon Hall Excellence in Learning Award for “Best Use of Social Learning” and McCulloch was recognized by CLO Magazine with the Gold Award for Innovation in Learning for the development of LEN.
