The key to this learning personalization is an AEC assessment platform called KnowledgeSmart. Let’s go over what it is, how the Pinnacle Series integration works, and the benefits of KnowledgeSmart assessments as part of a thorough AEC e-learning experience.
What Is KnowledgeSmart?
KnowledgeSmart is a platform companies use to conduct online skills assessments and surveys of their employees. It’s a great way for managers to measure things like software knowledge levels or collect data about employee satisfaction.
One of the reasons KnowledgeSmart is ideal for AEC firms is their variety of assessments on CAD, BIM, and other AEC software categories. Through KnowledgeSmart, companies can administer testing on AutoCAD, Revit, Inventor, MicroStation, and other important programs used every day in the architecture, engineering, construction, and manufacturing industries.
Pinnacle Series + KnowledgeSmart
Pinnacle Series and KnowledgeSmart fit together seamlessly. In short, KnowledgeSmart assessments allow you to identify skills gaps, while the expert-developed training content inside Pinnacle Series lets you close them.
And the best part is that because of our KnowledgeSmart integration, it’s all automated. You don’t have to have your managers administer tests and review results, and manually figure out which employees need to learn which content. Instead, employees can take assessments and use the results to automatically generate a custom learning path for the software in question.
Of course, you can still view their test results too. As Ron Rowcotsky from Davis Partnership Architects said in our case study, “the results of the KnowledgeSmart assessments were really interesting to look at; it really equalized and set the bar for understanding skills gaps and understanding where we lie within one easy metric.”
Benefits of KnowledgeSmart
The team behind Pinnacle Series is always thinking of ways we can innovate solutions for our customers. Our partnership with KnowledgeSmart allows us to deliver an even better e-learning experience for AEC organizations and their employees.
Here are some of the benefits of KnowledgeSmart:
- It enables a more efficient way of learning; employees don’t have to re-train on topics they already know if they’ve tested out of those courses.
- Assessment results give insights to management about the skill levels of their current employees.
- It takes the guesswork out of assigning training since the integration can generate personalized learning plans for each employee.
- Employees appreciate having tailored training instead of a one-size-fits-all approach. “Even the people that were hesitant at first saw the value almost immediately after they began with our customized training,” said Rowcotsky. “It was pretty hard to refute the value of that.”
Our case study on Associated Engineering revealed that Pinnacle and KnowledgeSmart have leveled up training operations at their company as well.
“These two platforms, in cooperation with one another, have allowed us to develop a really robust skills evaluation program for our organization,” said Technical Services Production Manager Bill Moore.
