Taxspeaker® will be leveraging the Thought Industries’ Learning Business Platform (™) to scale the B2B side of their business and provide robust education to accounting and tax professionals.
Boston, MA, June 27, 2017 – Thought Industries, one of the fastest growing online learning companies and creator of the first Learning Business Platform™ today announced a new partnership agreement with Taxspeaker®, a continuing education company for accounting and tax professionals. Taxspeaker will migrate their existing online learning content to the Thought Industries’ platform in order to improve the learning experience and scale their learning business.
Currently, Taxspeaker provides education direct to consumer -- to accounting and tax professionals. The organization delivers learning via conferences, live and pre-recorded webcasts, on-demand web-based videos, and self-study programs. Due to the nature of Taxspeaker’s content, learning materials need to be updated on a regular -- or at least annual -- basis. In order to do this, Taxspeaker needed a platform that allowed for seamless, content updates and course replication across its entire network of learning sites. The organization will use Thought Industries’ robust course authoring and content propagation capabilities to achieve this.
Taxspeaker will also develop the B2B side of their learning business using the platform’s Panorama functionality. Using Panorama, Taxspeaker plans to license existing learning content to large organizations by creating custom, branded learning experiences. “We are excited about switching over to Thought Industries and are excited to see our growth,” says Ryan Jennings, IT Director at Taxspeaker. “We are also excited by what Thought Industries has in its development pipeline and how we can leverage those coming innovations to improve our online learning experiences.”
“We continue to see the need for continuing education and professional education organizations like Taxspeaker to be able to provide better experiences for learners in a more scalable way,” said Doug Murphy, President of Thought Industries. “We’re happy to have them on board as our newest clients, and are excited to work with them as they expand their learning business with our platform.”
