Following on the heels of its very successful workforce development project in Newfoundland and Labrador, Bluedrop Performance Learning has announced that a second Canadian province has signed on to CoursePark to deliver targeted online learning to its workforce and small business sector. Details are expected in September at a formal announcement where the province’s premier, a partner organization and Bluedrop will officially launch the program.
This initiative will soon deliver online professional development courses for small and medium enterprises (SMEs), as well as its not-for-profit constituents. The initiative will also allow SMEs to access CoursePark to build, manage, track and deploy learning. The decision to move forward came after reviewing the speed and scope of the transformative benefits that SMEs realized after the CoursePark initiative launched in March 2011 in Newfoundland and Labrador.
“CoursePark is an amazing collaborative learning network that is changing the competitiveness and productivity of small businesses and the workforce at large. It is unique in the world and is well suited to help a region position its workforce and small businesses to compete and grow,” explained Emad Rizkalla, President and CEO of Bluedrop. “We are pleased to have a second Canadian province select CoursePark as its online platform to develop its small business capacity and workforce excellence. We look forward to announcing the details of this exciting initiative in September.”
