New Education Tools Roll Out

As Nelson Mandela says, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Here at Leading IT we believe education is a powerful weapon to combat cybersecurity attacks. Educating your staff is the key to keeping your company’s data safe. We have three new offerings rolling out for the spring season; Bigger Brains, Know Be4, and Dark Web Scan.

Bigger Brains

In almost any office situation you will find staff using Microsoft Office every day. Many people use Microsoft Outlook, Excel and Word all day long.

In most cases, these employees are not trained in Microsoft Office, and as a result it will burden the company with hidden but real costs. Lower productivity, over hiring and poor morale are all consequences of people toiling on tools they don’t understand and have not mastered. Productivity gains, smarter work and morale boosts are easy wins when people are properly trained on the Microsoft Office tools they use daily. There is a lot of training on the Internet but it's hard to distinguish the quality material from the chaff. Learners want to know that their time will be rewarded. They don’t want advertising noise during learning time. They do want an easy to find, orderly course with great material. They want to track their own progress, easily review, and assess learning materials.

LeadingIT now has the ability to add more learning content from eLearning magazine award winner Bigger Brains. This would be an add-on in our Help@app that ALL of your team would have access to. A broad range of the Microsoft Office suite is covered, including new Word, Excel, Outlook, Access and Project. Exciting new products like OneDrive, Groups and Planner are covered in the comprehensive Office 365 course. The content can be watched as many times as necessary and it’s easy to track which courses have been completed. Bigger Brains allows you to give your staff the tools they need to succeed and increase results.
