  • So let’s take a look at the different functional areas of an average KnowledgeCenter. This screen is the home page for our Leadership KnowledgeCenter. Let’s do a quick walk-through of the functionality starting over here in the upper left. At the top of this column we provide users with access to our Books 24x7 library. Learners can interact with those books in a couple ways at. The first way is the using the search box – users can type in a search term and their search will return only the relevant books to the topic of this KnowledgeCenter. That’s true of the browse function as well. Users can click that link to see all of the references from Books 24x7 that are relevant to the topic of the KnowledgeCenter. Beneath that are a series of selected books. These books have been chosen by SkillSoft subject matter experts either because they relate to the featured topic or perhaps they are new books in the collection. Those books will be updated on regular basis by our SMEs so that as users returned the KnowledgeCenter overtime there is new reference material for them to refer to. That’s true of the section under the books as well. This area depending on the KnowledgeCenter will contain different assets from SkillSoft. In this case we see some JobAids. There might be SkillBriefs as well. In some of our KnowledgeCenters for IT developers we’re featuring references from our Instant Code series. Like the Featured Book area, this area is managed by SkillSoft subject matter experts and will be updated on regular basis.
  • On the right at the top of the column, we have access to our SkillSoft expert mentors. For subject areas where SkillSoft offers mentoring, users will have access to mentors both from here on the homepage as well as from within the courses that make up the learning roadmaps. The KnowledgeCenter homepage also includes a series of links to external resources on the web and the users may wish to consult as they’re learning about project management, Visual Basic, or any of the topics of the KnowledgeCenter.
