CHANDLER, Ariz., May 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Learn@Forbes, launched by Zovio and Forbes Media, which offers top courses for today's demanding career fields and disciplines, today announced the launch of Forbes SmartAdvisor.
The Forbes SmartAdvisor is a free, online, three-minute assessment that combines neuroscience, psychology, artificial intelligence, and machine learning to create personalized learning paths.
"COVID-19 has had an unprecedented economic impact on American workers across the country," said Dhiraj Bansal, chief operating officer of Learn@Forbes. "Non-degree or skills-based alternatives for education and training, like those offered by Learn@Forbes, provide an accessible, cost-effective alternative path for people to quickly gain the skills necessary to pivot toward a new job or career."
By utilizing three information points—users' personality, their current skills, and the skills necessary for the aspirational role they selected—Forbes SmartAdvisor creates a customized learning path.
"Learn@Forbes currently offers more than 850+ courses, specializations, and Learning Pathways in marketing, human resources, leadership, finance and accounting, entrepreneurship, sales, communications, customer service, and project management. Using this wealth of a la carte and subscription courses and programs, SmartAdvisor curates a custom learning path for users," noted Bansal. "And, because the courses are self-paced, there is no set number of courses that can be completed in a month, making Learn@Forbes learning paths a timely option for those whose employment has been affected by COVID-19."
SmartAdvisor users can save their results for future reference. Those who would like to start their personalized learning path can do so with a free 14-day trial. For additional information, please visit learn.forbes.com.
