What We're Building

Our professional learning platform makes people more motivated and productive at work.

LearnCore, the flagship product for VLinks Media, makes it easy for organizations of all sizes to create and deploy engaging training courses to their teams. From the beginning we focus on simplicity and the user experience and consider LearnCore one of the most intuitive learning platforms to use. We started the company building products with top educational publishers like Pearson and Kaplan and have brought several of those learning methodologies into LearnCore. Now, any manager can upload content created in regular real-world apps like Word, PowerPoint, or Google Docs; and have the platform transform that previously static content into a highly interactive, easy to navigate, and trackable course. So whether its new product information, policies & procedures, or even soft-skill building, the platform allows training to be aligned with business performance rather than focused just on compliance.
