The way people consume information today has shifted dramatically, and learning preferences have followed the trend. According to Gartner, “Analytics leaders should use analytics training as a strategic tool to improve fact-based decision making, share data and insights for better collaboration, and foster a data-driven culture.” Gartner also commented that “Analytics leaders must use a mix of training delivery methods to improve the learning experience for new analytics capabilities.” 
Qlik Continuous Classroom answers this need by enabling users to build their own learning path by choosing the content they want learn, or conveniently select from pre-defined paths. Because products are frequently updated with new and improved features, content will be regularly added to the library. This ensures that users have access to the latest Qlik training available for their level, and can take advantage of every new feature and function from the newest product release.
“We at Qlik are always challenging ourselves with how we can make the experience with our product the very best for any type of user with different learning styles. With an intuitive self-service product like Qlik Sense we wanted the learning process to accelerate user success,” said Kevin Hanegan, vice president of Knowledge and Learning at Qlik. “Qlik Continuous Classroom is modular to accommodate someone who is only just beginning with analytics or wants to increase their skills in creating apps and best practice visualizations.”
