Rochester, NY – February 27, 2018 – Ardent, a leading provider of custom training solutions, today announced its partnership with Ed MicroLearning. Ed is an award-winning, cloud-based mobile learning management system. The agreement provides Ardent with another tool for companies that are developing custom learning programs.

Designed for today’s digital habits, Ed delivers engaging and effective microlearning directly to users’ devices, anytime, anywhere.

“The Ed application’s mobile-first design is ideal for how learning programs are evolving with technology, and with user’s needs in mind,” said Rich Fox, President and CEO of Ardent. “Adding Ed to our toolkit is a natural fit. We’ve always developed programs based on our customers business objectives, and Ed is built with that same approach.”

With headquarters in Sydney, Australia and offices in New York and London, Ed is being rapidly adopted by Fortune 500 companies in the United States, Asia Pacific and Europe.

“As we continue to grow, partnering with Ardent is an ideal opportunity to place learning literally in the hands of the user,” said Darren Winterford, Director at Ed MicroLearning. “There is not a one-size fits all solution for learning, and we’ve created an application that offers choices to fit different needs. It is really a microlearning approach that brings the instantaneous and ‘now’ element of the smartphone to corporate training.”

Ed application is an all-in-one platform that offers content authoring, delivery, rewards and analytics. While designed for mobile, the application works on tablets and desktop, so users can access based on their preference.

As Ardent develops custom learning programs, the Ed application expands the options for content delivery, and can be integrated within a broad program that can be sustained over time. Ed can integrate easily into existing learning management systems as needed or can be used as a stand-alone.

“For a learning program to be successful, we work with our customers to embrace a holistic approach that includes multiple touchpoints,” said Fox. “We’re excited to join forces with Ed to bring this tool to our customers to help them reach their business goals.”
