Oracle Learning Cloud Unveiled at Oracle HCM World
New standard for learning designed for digital workforce helps employees learn contextually and socially from wherever they are
ORACLE HCM WORLD, WASHINGTON, DC – March 27, 2015 – Digital disruption is impacting all aspects of the workforce. Today, employees expect the same capabilities at work that they get in the consumer world. Unveiled today at Oracle HCM World in Washington, DC, Oracle has introduced Oracle Learning Cloud to help shift the corporate learning paradigm to one that enables employees at all levels to learn contextually and socially regardless of their location.
Creating a new standard in enterprise learning, the new Oracle Learning Cloud reflects changing user preferences as digital natives join the workforce. Designed for the way people learn today, the next generation learning solution goes beyond traditional learning management systems to provide today’s digital workforce with better access to content, within context, shared by subject experts, and backed by the power of the Oracle Cloud.
“To adapt and succeed in today’s digital workforce, HR and business leaders must simplify the employee experience and enable connections anywhere and via any device, personalize information and communicate it in a way that is relevant for their job, and create a culture where employees want to share their knowledge and encourage them to engage with each other in new and creative ways,” said Chris Leone, senior vice president, Oracle HCM Development. “The new Oracle Learning Cloud helps companies provide employees with a consumer-like experience to help retain and develop the talent they need to be successful.”
Traditional learning management systems have historically been prescriptive, often delivering information in silos, without integration to core HR, talent management, and social platforms. To help develop today’s digital workforce and create the leaders of tomorrow, the new Oracle Learning Cloud, part of Oracle Human Capital Management Cloud (Oracle HCM Cloud) enables HR and business leaders to offer curated and referral-based learning. With Oracle Learning Cloud, HR and business leaders can source content from both internal and external sources, including YouTube and Massive Open Online Courses (MooCs). Understanding that user-generated content and crowd-sourced information is king in the consumer world, Oracle designed its Oracle Learning Cloud to be social, contextual, intelligent, scalable and secure.
With the Oracle Cloud as its foundation, the new Oracle Learning Cloud also provides all of the compliance and administration features of traditional learning management systems.
