Skilltype’s latest release 1.26 includes a new feature: Creating and Sharing Training Lists
Everyone on the Skilltype platform can create Training Lists based on Skilltype’s curated collection of resources for library and information professions. Training List items can be arranged like a music playlist, to queue up training to meet individual or team goals.
Training Lists are now available in Skilltype through My Learning
How can Skilltype’s Training Lists help you?
Create a personalized Training List for upcoming project, service or collection effort. Your Training List will be available for you in My Learning.

How can Skilltype Training Lists help library Teams?

Leaders or managers of library committees can create and share a List for any purpose such as getting ready for an upcoming system upgrade or service improvement project.
A library can create a Team for all new hires, and any manager of the Team can share a Training List of core learning resources that will be available any time new staff join the library.
Team Managers can view the team’s progress through each team’s Learning Activity tab.
Team Members will receive an email and a Skilltype notification to quickly access shared Training Lists.
