Today we are officially announcing our new Storyals offerings – Storyals Lite and Storyals Pro. Two SharePoint-based solutions with our unique story-based video content to help organizations transition to a modern workplace on Office 365. We have been working closely with Microsoft on their (“officially” launched in May 2019) solution – “Microsoft 365 learning pathways“. This new solution provides a modern video streaming service that customers can deploy and access right from their Office 365 environment.
What is Microsoft 365 learning pathways?
Microsoft 365 learning pathways (formerly known as Custom Learning for Office 365) is a customizable, on-demand training solution by Microsoft, designed to increase usage and adoption of Office 365. When the solution was first announced by Microsoft in May 2018, it went under that name Training Services for Office 365. In simple terms, it’s a SharePoint Online Communication site, fully customizable pre-populated with structured training content. The training videos are streamed and kept up to date by Microsoft.
Why Storyals and Microsoft 365 learning pathways?
Knowing how a product works is one thing. Understanding how to get the most out of Office 365 and change your work style – that’s a completely different ball game.
Storyals builds on top of the content provided by Microsoft 365 learning pathways. It adds unique story-based tutorials and expert guidance on how to work smarter with Office 365 in real-life scenarios. We also provide customers with the option to customize Storyals videos and portal design to align with the corporate’s branding and messaging. Driving effective use of Office 365 is a continuous journey, now organizations can get help in that journey with Storyals.
“We have been working closely with the Microsoft product team in Redmond to develop our solution and we are very proud of the result. With Storyals’ unique story-based video content and built-in Office 365 know-how, combined with Microsoft’s product training and learning portal framework, we really have a killer solution. The Storyals learning portals will help organizations world-wide transition to a modern workplace on Office 365.” – Ulrika Hedlund (Founder of Storyals)
Two offerings to meet all organizational needs
Storyals comes in two different offerings – Storyals Lite and Storyals Pro. Both versions include Storyals’ unique, story-based video content and Microsoft’s provisioned product tutorial videos, in a pre-populated SharePoint communication site. With Storyals Lite, organizations can quickly and easily provide their users with access to all the Storyals Office 365 content. Users can test their knowledge with basic quizzes and receive generic completion certificates. You can learn more about Storyals Lite here.
What many organizations experience driving adoption is the need for “a carrot and a stick” methodology. Just having great content isn’t enough, you need to be able to assign and track adoption on an individual level. With Storyals Pro, organizations get advanced management tools. They include the ability to:
- assign topics to users,
- provide users with automatically generated reminders,
- personalize certificates,
- personalize dashboards,
- access leaderboards and
- access advanced reporting.
