NetDimensions and ApprenNet sign partnership agreement to enable new highs of learner engagement

Rocky Hill, CT, USA; 17 November 2014 - NetDimensions (AIM: NETD; OTCQX: NETDY), a global provider of performance, knowledge, and learning management systems, and ApprenNet, an innovative interactive learning application provider, today announced a new partnership that will enable organisations to take learning to a new level via efficient and compelling peer-to-peer interactions.

"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn."

NetDimensions Learning is an award-winning, multilingual Learning Management System that enables organisations to manage the entire learning and development process and to offer a highly personalised learning environment. The NetDimensions Learning platform is widely recognised for its ability to support any kind of learning modality and to integrate with any number of new learning tools and applications.

ApprenNet provides a new and innovative cloud-based application for delivering role-play exercises online and asynchronously, thereby enabling learners to collaborate closely together and learn from each other. Learners practice discrete skills iteratively, apply self knowledge, and share best practices in a highly interactive, socially collaborative, and rubric measured environment.

Scaling interactive learning role-play and increasing ROI

This new partnership focuses on ensuring a high return on investment on corporate learning. The ApprenNet solution increases learner engagement with video and improves learning efficacy while saving on classroom instructional time and reducing employee time away from the job.

Peter Barrett, President of NetDimensions Americas and General Manager of NetDimensions Interactive, stated: “When we first reviewed the ApprenNet solution, we realised how well it addresses a major business concern to provide scalable role-play in a virtual environment.”

NetDimensions Interactive is a NetDimensions business unit specialising in helping organisations adopt the best learning technologies, content, and methods in order to offer high quality training to their employees. With over a decade of experience, NetDimensions Interactive understands the importance of bringing creativity and unique designs to deliver learning solutions that effectively meet the specific needs of each business.

Barrett continued: “ApprenNet, coupled with our supporting instructional services, makes it easy to achieve higher learner engagement and increased ROI for many roles and functions within an organisation."

“The combination of ApprenNet’s learning modality and NetDimensions’ content and curricular development expertise provides clients with a complete, turnkey solution for taking role-play to scale online,” noted Karl Okamoto, ApprenNet’s CEO. “We are very excited to be working together with the NetDimensions team.”

The partnership between NetDimensions and ApprenNet provides organisations with an innovative, end-to-end approach that includes the platform tool, the instructional design expertise, and the administrative support to maximise results.
