Multiple Delivery Options

SmartAuthor with Infinity is a training resource like none other.

Including a library of hundreds of online training courses, it covers subjects from finance to wellbeing and people management to English grammar.

Featuring both soft-skills and compliance subjects, the courses are fully customisable and ensure real learning transfer through learner engagement.

Four distinct training delivery systems ensure that training is received via the most effective means:

Smart Bites

Smart Bites are A.I. delivered microlearning (AIDm) - the proactive side of online skills development.

The system starts by sending delegates regular headlines. As it 'learns' what the delegate needs, it tailors SmartBytes and delivers them to meet that need.

SmartBytes include short interactive exercises, quizzes etc and include links to SkillBuilder blended advanced study options.

Learning in depth

SkillGate's SkillBuilder blended programmes take self-development training to the next level. Offering in-depth training on a wide variety of subjects, they offer a multi-format learning experience for maximum results results.

SkillBuilder blended courses deliver in three main ways:

  • Online Tutorials - the structured learning element of a SkillBuilder blended programme is made up of a series of online tutorials. The tutorials guide learners through the basics of what they need to know, offering context and understanding to the subject.

  • Face-to-face training - either via a traditional classroom session, or via webinar, SkillBuilder blended programmes incorporate a person-to-person training aspect which encourages learners to complete the course. Tutor support in the form of assignment feedback and online Q&A motivates learners to further develop their skills.

  • Embedding - ensuring that the learning doesn't end when the training course is complete, regular 'SmartBytes' are sent out to learners who have completed the course. These emails are designed to embed what has been learnt and expand on the learning by offering suggestions for further study, short exercises, refreshers and related articles.
