SkillsCommons Names Monarch Media as a Technology Partner

Skills CommonsMonarch Media is pleased to announce its selection as one of the technology partners for SkillsCommons, a free and open digital library of Workforce Training Materials.

“Given our years of experience in learning design combined with our dedication to open source technologies and OER, this new partnership is a natural fit, “says Monarch CEO, Greg Flesher. “We know that education and individual development is fundamental to improving lives and establishing a culture that encourages personal and organizational effectiveness.”

Part of the partnership includes a “makeover” of existing OERs that are stored in the SkillsCommons library. You can visit the webinar recording for a demonstration on how we redesigned a resource and made it engaging and easy-to-use, in a quick and cost-effective manner.

A video walkthrough of the makeover is available here
