Joensuu, Finland, 18 February 2021 – Valamis, the global leader in digital learning technologies and workforce development, partnered with Sverok to create an innovative learning solution for 55,000 gaming members.
Sverok, a Swedish national federation for non-profit gaming clubs, focuses on supporting local gaming clubs to help them expand. Sverok is one of Sweden’s largest youth federations and helps young gamers manage their gaming associations.
Sverok’s goal with the learning solution is to provide effective and engaging training for active members of local gaming clubs. In response to young gamers’ specific development needs, Sverok partnered with Valamis to create Skilltree, an innovative central learning solution.
“We needed a modern, social, and interactive learning platform to attract and keep our young gamers network engaged. We wanted to offer the most innovative solution for our technology-savvy learners, so we decided to go for a Learning Experience Platform (LXP) instead of a traditional Learning Management System (LMS). We evaluated several LXP solutions and Valamis stood up with its unique, innovative approach to digital learning. Valamis’ intuitive, fresh, and modern user interface enabled us to customize the look and feel as well as the language for our audience,” explained Gabrielle de Bourg, Learning Manager at Sverok.
It is essential for Sverok to manage training with a single centralized solution; therefore, the entirety of their learning and development process is regulated on Valamis’ learning experience platform – from content creation to learning delivery, tracking, and reporting.
“We wanted an innovative and flexible platform that would grow with our organization over time. Valamis was the only platform that met all our requirements, such as xAPI and Open Badges, and offered all the latest LXP features available in the market,” said de Bourg.
Valamis enables the Sverok team to produce an extensive amount of content focused on gaming as a hobby by utilizing the knowledge resources of the gaming club community.
“As gaming is all about communities and knowledge sharing, we created a platform that encourages user interactivity and highlights learner achievements. To empower users, we give them a certificate and a badge when they finish a learning path, so they can highlight their accomplishments to their network. The goal was to create a gamified learning experience that would combine our users’ love of gaming with learning.”, commented de Bourg.
“We’re looking forward to growing the partnership with Sverok overtime to support their gaming network. We keep adding new, innovative features to the Valamis platform, to make sure organizations like Sverok will always have the latest technology available.”, commented Jari Järvela, Head of Business Development, Valamis.
