Expect More Business and Technical Skills Learning

All of us at LatitudeU hope you enjoyed a Happy Holiday Season and wish you a prosperous, healthy New Year. We thank you for your continued participation and bringing your friends and colleagues to our website. We have added many new features and will continue to add more capabilities to enrich and support your LatitudeU experience.

In 2009 LatitudeU is moving in a new direction that provides courses to enhance your work and your career. Based on feedback and additional research, LatitudeU will undergo a major change in content focus—from virtually all subjects to those related to Professional and Job Skills. With this change LatitudeU will dramatically and quickly expand our content offerings. We are in the process of bringing up thousands of new courses in technical, business and other job and professional skill development areas from some of the leading providers of e-earning in the world. You will start to see them this month. We are loading new courses just as fast as we can.

>> Please check www.latitudeu.com often for all these new courses available in 2009. <<

With this new direction, some existing courses will be temporarily deactivated. LatitudeU apologizes for any inconvenience this causes to our members and ask for your continued good will. We feel the new courses will provide even greater value to the LatitudeU learning community. Edit: Previous course announcements related to these removed courses were also removed from this blog.

We are excited to announce that we are now adding 3200 courses from SkillSoft, the world’s largest provider of eLearning. In addition to SkillSoft’s courses, we are actively working with dozens of other e-learning providers that offer well over 20,000 additional courses. These courses cover a wide range of technical, business, organizational, communications, leadership, and other work-related skills and knowledge. The new professional and job skill courses will begin showing up in the second week of January with continuous additions.

Also coming soon: a subject index and curriculums. You asked us to provide capabilities that make it easier to find courses of interest. In the next few months, a subject index and curriculums feature will be added to LatitudeU, so you can browse through the catalog more efficiently. Of course, you can continue to search the catalog based on keywords.

LatitudeU welcomes your suggestions, requests, and other feedback. You can always contact us through our website or eMail our Director, David Burta at dave.burta@latitudecg.com.
