What is a corporate learning app?

A corporate learning application is a web or mobile application that enables users to learn about specific topics and complete training courses. Corporate learning apps usually include features for creating custom training programs, publishing trainings as part of a curriculum, and tracking the progress of employees through their trainings.

Corporate learning apps are similar to productivity apps and project management apps. Popular examples of corporate learning applications include, Coursera, and Skillshare.

How to successfully grow your corporate learning application

A corporate learning app can grow its user base by focusing on efficiency improvements for users and companies. A good example of this is an app that helps companies provide feedback to employees, or an app that provides in-class support to students during a training course. In order to achieve significant growth, a corporate learning app needs to show that it is capable of reducing the amount of time and effort required for traditional workflows.

Risks and challenges of building a corporate learning application

A corporate learning app faces risks related to the security of sensitive employee-related data, the breach of intellectual property rights, and the use of the app by employees for personal reasons. A corporate learning app should provide strong security tools to prevent unauthorized use. It is important not to allow employees to use your platform for personal reasons other than their work-related tasks.
