In late 2018, The California State University system will migrate from our currently learning management sy stem, SkillPort, to a new system, CSU Learn.
What is CSU Learn?
CSU Learn is a learning management system (LMS) provided by Skillsoft/SumTotal. The LMS allows the CSU to assign, track, and leverage content ranging from mandatory professional development to compliance.
Why CSU Learn?
The CSU's current enterprise training contract was reaching the end of its term. As per CSU requirement, a new RFP was conducted and placed out to bid. CSU Learning & Development established an RFP committee with 27 participants from various campus areas, and the campus stakeholders indicated that the CSU's needs had outgrown the current training solution.
CSU Learn will provide a system that meets the CSU's growing needs, including flexibility for training assignment criteria, support for employees with multiple roles, extensive reporting and analytics, and a more dynamic user experience. SkillSoft's client base and success stories reached familiar partners such as the University of California system (UC) and other highly regulated industries including pharmaceuticals and airlines.
