When the world went into lockdown, millions of people turned to online courses to upskill and empower themselves – and to keep boredom at bay! As a result, the demand for easy-to-access knowledge and skills training is now higher than ever. With the launch of the new Alison Courses App, learners now have over 2000 free courses at the tips of their fingers.
The app has the same user-friendly dashboard as the Alison desktop platform and has all the same features, including course progress, completed courses, and available certificates, which can be downloaded within the app.
“The improved layout and functionality of the new version of the app allows for a better user experience” says Tim Potenz, Product Manager at Alison. “It was important to us to streamline navigation and to make the learning process as intuitive as possible.”
Other new features include:
- Improved search: Autocomplete, autosuggest and the ability to search within categories allow learners to easily find courses.
- Full-screen support for video content to make studying on-the-go even easier.
- Fewer ads for a better user experience!
On-the-go learning is now easier than ever as the desktop platform and mobile app seamlessly integrate and sync automatically. Learners can easily move between learning on the website and learning on the app. A learner can start a course on their laptop and then pick up where they left off on their mobile phone, as course progress is shared across platforms.
Learning on Alison is completely free and learners have access to all 2000+ free online courses via the Alison Courses app. Should a learner wish to purchase a digital or printed certificate or diploma after passing a course, they can do so through the Alison shop which is fully accessible within the app. The process of purchasing certification has been made much easier and all discounts can now also be applied to purchases within the app.
