GeekPack Partners is the perfect fit for Economic Development Organizations (EDOs). We’ve identified a significant unmet need that many EDOs face: They have the mission to offer digital skills training to their communities, but a lack of resources to do so quickly and effectively.
Enter: GeekPack Partners.
Through this new partner program, EDOs can “plug into” our e-learning infrastructure and give their communities access to our platform. We’ll set up custom learning cohorts for each partner inside our highly supportive community-based learning infrastructure. Our innovative approach to e-learning integrates community support into the self-directed study process, which makes us ideal for efficient, long-lasting skill development.
Partner organizations can choose from our robust library of digital skills training (provided by Udemy Business) and we can then create custom, GeekPack-led study groups specific to each partner and its goals.
The Udemy Business course catalog is vast, with more than 19,000 courses. GeekPack trims it down to tech and digital skills and within that smaller scope, we present highly specific learning paths and single-course cohorts with a live learning element.
Our learning paths are basically a “shortcut” to the catalog, eliminating overwhelm and helping our members make quick, informed decisions about which topics and courses to study.
We also focus on putting these skills into practice quickly and in the real world of business with clients and customers.
We’ve already established our first partnership, with the Wyoming Women’s Business Center (WWBC)
Through this partnership, WWBC is granting 6 weeks of GeekPack membership to its community, and we are providing custom learning cohorts for WWBC members to learn specific, WWBC-selected digital marketing skills.
The world is becoming more digitally oriented every day.
The skills we teach are no longer nice-to-haves; they are a critical component to economic success and financial well-being.
Countless organizations are working to close the digital skills gap in their communities, but they’re hindered by the monumental size of the task.
We can make it easier for EDOs to advance their mission and fulfill their charters in ways that truly serve their communities for the long run.
For most e-learning companies, high student retention and completion rates are like the Holy Grail… intensely sought after but really hard to get.
GeekPack cracked the code for both, and it comes down to one thing: community.
At GeekPack, we create a learning environment built on community support – the necessary foundation for successful online learning.
What sets us apart from other e-learning platforms is our live element, which includes topic-specific group cohorts led by the GeekPack team.
The new partner program allows established organizations to make use of our highly successful learning infrastructure.
Online learning is great in theory, but between the overwhelm and the isolation, it’s a losing proposition.
GeekPack empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing digital skills training without the isolation.
Online courses are a dime a dozen, but GeekPack is the only e-learning platform that combines industry-leading skills training with an in-house, supportive learning environment that makes success practically inevitable for our members.
