The American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) has released a new continuous learning and talent development platform–ASAE Learning Online. The new service offers on-demand learning opportunities for everyone in the community—both members and non-members.
“ASAE Learning Online gives the association community the ability to learn at the point of need, when and where they need it, as well as understand where they are along their career path. Subscribers will be able to take self-assessments, set goals and track all their continuing education in one place,” says ASAE President and CEO John H. Graham IV, FASAE, CAE, in a statement on the ASAE website. “We are very excited about this new platform for association professionals!”
Some of the services offered by the system include personalized learning plans, knowledge gap assessments and other educational opportunities relating to management and professional skills. Management abilities have been dictated by ASAE’s Job Task Analysis. Cultivating this skillset is essential to individuals, their teams and the overall functionality of companies. The platform is also capable of offering personalized recommendations.
“Research shows that organizations with strong learning and talent development processes drive better business results, including: more revenue, greater employee engagement, reduced staff turnover and higher customer retention,” says ASAE’s Chief Learning Officer Rhonda Payne, CAE. “As we position ASAE to provide the best support for our members individually as well as organizationally, it is critical that we offer a variety of ways to engage and help advance this type of employee-centric learning culture.”
The platform is comprised of member-produced, staff-produced and third-party course content. ASAE Learning Online will run on the platform SumTotal, a provider of human resource management software and services. A monthly or annual subscription can be purchased by both ASAE members and non-members. Members can pay a monthly rate of $49 or a yearly subscription fee of $488. For non-members, the monthly rate is $69 and a yearly subscription is $678. ASAE Learning Online also offers a free 7-day trial, which is a limited freemium account with five trial courses.
ASAE Learning Online will also add organizational subscriptions this fall, along with a variety of talent management functions, multi-course certificate programs and career bundles. To learn more about the program, or to sign-up, visit ASAE Learning Online.
