[NEW FEATURE] Enhance Your Users’ Learning Experience with Optional Learning

You asked, we listened! We are excited to introduce the new Optional Learning feature within your KnowBe4 platform. Optional Learning enables you to offer your users additional training content from your KnowBe4 ModStore. Simply create specific training campaigns with the optional training content you would like to make available for your users to self-select.

Once you push these training campaigns live, the training content is added to your users’ Learner Library tab within the KnowBe4 Learner Experience interface. You now have the ability to add a variety of training content and supplemental reinforcements that help your users take an active role in their security awareness education with the flexibility to choose what training they want to take and when. Your users can click on a training content tile in their library and will be able to view the course descriptions pulled directly from the ModStore.

New Optional Learning

With Optional Learning You Can:

  • Provide additional training content you would like to make available to your users outside of mandatory training, including your own SCORM-compliant custom content 
  • Track your users’ engagement and completion progress of optional training content to help gauge interests in topics and preferences for future training campaigns
  • Set up different Optional Learning training campaigns based on roles, groups, or other performance metrics
  • Use the KnowBe4 gamification feature as part of your Optional Learning initiatives to encourage friendly competition among users. Your users can earn extra badges as they voluntarily choose to learn more about being more security-aware

Ready to see what cool optional learning content you can offer your users?
