13 June 2018 by Libby Cross

Oxford, UK: Learning Pool (formerly HT2 Labs) to confirm integration with Filtered’s magpie API, to deliver personalised learning recommendations through Learning Pool (formerly HT2 Labs) products from September.

The teams at Learning Pool (formerly HT2 Labs) and Filtered have joined together to offer product integrations to provide a more complete personalised learning experience for their clients.

The partnership will see Filtered’s set of algorithms (known as ‘magpie’) deliver personalised learning recommendations to Learning Pool (formerly HT2 Labs)’ software platforms.

magpie is already closely integrated with Learning Locker (Learning Pool (formerly HT2 Labs)’ Learning Record Store), with the the focus of this new partnership being to enable customers to power recommendations with their own experience data, driving engagement through accurate and prompt learning content suggestions.

Commenting on the partnership, Learning Pool (formerly HT2 Labs) CEO Ben Betts said:

“This is a huge step forward in the industry and showcases how two innovators can come together in a seamless way.”

Attributing the success of this partnership to the launch of Filtereds’ magpie, Marc Zao-Sanders, CEO of Filtered, added;

“Thanks to magpie’s new API integration capability, our systems come together in a flawless fashion.”

Come September, customers will be able to launch the magpie sequence through a chatbot interface which will be directly integrated into Learning Pool (formerly HT2 Labs) products. Recommendations are drawn from a list of 40 core competencies, instantly returning a set of personalised suggestions curated from an array of sources, including HBR, TED, Forbes, The Economist and FutureLearn.

Both Filtered and the team at Learning Pool (formerly HT2 Labs) will be sharing a stream of updates via online channels over the coming months as they work together towards a full launch of the integration, to be offered as part of Learning Pool (formerly HT2 Labs)’ milestone launch event in September. More details on this soon.
