More learning, even though you’re busy

We all live busy lives, so we leverage the best tools we can find to learn while we sit on airplanes, in a doctor’s waiting room, or at our own desks during those few minutes before our next teleconference gets underway.

While it’s long been the case that you can pull out your latest copy of Credit Union Management magazine to read at these times, sometimes all you have with you is your phone.

Enter CUES Learning Portal, powered by Degreed, which will become available to CUES members on Oct. 1.

This new portal is a curated learning site, which means that it’s not just a mish-mash of things you can read, watch or listen to. Instead it’s a place where you can customize your learning by setting your topic preferences, following learning pathways established by content and learning experts, and looking at the online courses people you respect are taking and recommending.

Here are a few additional reasons I think you’ll find CUES Learning Portal a curated site worth using:

1. CUES Learning Portal is home to diverse content. Many websites host content from a small number of their own creators, leaving little room for diversity. With fewer authors, you get a smaller assortment of thoughts, ideas and opinions. In contrast, curated sites like CUES Learning Portal overcome this limitation by compiling information from multiple sources across the internet with our own industry-leading content.

2. You can develop your interest in new topics and skills while using the site. With hundreds of useful articles available, you are bound to find a fascinating new topic to improve your business skills, deepen your understanding of your industry or even expose you to something new to do for fun.

3. You can use CUES Learning Portal to track learning. On our new portal, you can mark every learning item you complete, providing an easy way to see your progress. You can return to this content anytime to review, refresh or relearn all the information from your previous learning sessions. You can even share content with your colleagues—and assign content to your staff and track their progress.

You’re busy. Your team members are busy. A curated content site like CUES Learning Portal is a great new tool for doing more talent development in the limited time available. And it’s just one more great offering among the new 2019 CUES membership benefits.

After you and your staff have tried it out, I’d love to hear your feedback.
