Keeping up with our fast-changing technology is more than just a nice idea. For tech providers, it’s essential. That’s why training is so important.
With that in mind, Intel Partner University, the training program of Intel Partner Alliance, has just gotten a major upgrade. The entire training program has been moved to a new platform, making it easier, faster and just better to use.
Here are some of the updates and new features you’ll find now on Intel Partner University:
> Greater scalability and a more intuitive user interface. This includes an updated home page with dropdown navigation, streamlined catalog, and a new Dashboard that enables new ways to learn about Intel trainings, such as Competencies and learning paths.
> Role-based recommendations. A new AI engine delivers dynamic content based on your partner type, so what you see depends on what you do. For example, if you’re a reseller, you might be shown training courses that focus on sales.
> A new “My Activities” page that makes it easy for you to see your training status, helping you stay on track to complete both individual courses and the deeper training curriculums known as Competencies.
> An interactive calendar of training events including webinars. Hover your cursor over an event, and a description will pop up. You can also now adjust the calendar view to monthly, weekly and daily.
> New trainings, including a “101” series of introductory trainings (such as “What is SSD?”), designed for those who are new to the industry.
> Digital “nudges,” including emails and a notification bell icon, that help you remember to finish a training or update your Competency badge.
> Star ratings: Let others know how you liked a course by rating it on a scale of 1 to 5 stars. And when you’re looking for a new training, you can check out the star ratings of others.
