Welcoming HT2 to the family

04 July 2019 by Paul McElvaney

It’s been a month since we welcomed HT2 Labs into the Learning Pool family. This is the most ambitious thing we’ve ever done at Learning Pool and now that the dust has settled, we’re even more excited about the opportunity we’ve created for customers and our team.

It’s been a busy few weeks spent getting to know a bunch of new people, meeting customers to understand their challenges and resetting our product strategy to deliver what they need, faster.

What I’m seeing more and more is that the existing world of compliance training and blended learning is fast being joined by self directed learning and data driven decision making. I don’t think one will replace the other any time soon, but we’re planning for an integrated future with products that deliver real business impact and we’ll share more with you as we move through summer.

But for now, Anna Lloyd from our product team caught up with Ben Betts and I in Derry earlier this week. We talked about the big stuff like next generation learning tech and learning analytics, and we covered the really important things like what the acquisition means for our customers and our staff, and last but by no means least we chatted about our Learning Pool Labs project.

So grab a coffee and catch up on our plans here.
