The Planning and Professional Development team is excited to share that the online employee training platform Skillsoft has been upgraded to a new improved platform: Percipio.
Percipio is an intelligent online learning platform that delivers an immersive learning experience through highly engaging content, curated into nearly 700 learning paths (channels), with access to over 2,500 courses on a wide range of topics. When first logging into Percipio, employees will be asked to identify their top areas of interest (related to learning/training). These selections will be incorporated into your own personalized Percipio homepage where you will find recommended channels, playlists, and courses based on your unique interests. You also have the ability to create your own playlists and resume courses in progress all from your homepage.
Percipio provides learning accessible via computer, smartphone, and tablet (via a web browser or the Percipio App). Training progress is recorded, and digital badges are awarded following the completion of a course and/or test. Percipio is a free resource for all Daytona State College employees.
*When logging into the system for the first time, please complete the two-part onboarding assessment in order to personalize your experience.
If you have any questions regarding Percipio or would like to create playlists and/or channels for your department, please contact Kristen Getka (x3104).
