While COVID-19 has highlighted the value and accessibility of virtual courses, average online learning offerings are not without their shortcomings. Typically designed in a one-size-fits-all manner, courses do not account for varying levels of expertise and offer less value to experienced practitioners. Often, they focus on theoretical learning and lack the real-world applications that practitioners seek. And lastly, they generally require a long-term commitment, which deters many from enrolling and pursuing these opportunities, while those that do enroll, although hungry for the knowledge, frequently do not complete the courses. XP Squared was designed to address these shortcomings and introduce a more task-based approach to online learning, providing professionals hundreds of materials on various areas of experience optimization to help them master these in-demand and highly marketable skills.
“Having accumulated an immense wealth of practical knowledge on the practice of personalization, A/B testing, and conversion rate optimization over the years, we wanted to share this knowledge freely with the entire industry,” said Yaniv Navot, VP of Global Marketing at Dynamic Yield. “But we didn’t want to introduce yet another online course that people wouldn’t fully utilize, which is why we built XP Squared as an entirely new kind of knowledge platform – one that is designed to reflect how people actually gain knowledge, and that is optimized for experienced practitioners.”
