Benefits of Open Learning
Want to climb the Ladder?
Get busy learning; or get busy becoming irrelevant. Want to work on a cool project someday? Want to prove that you are the right person for the next big initiative? LEARN
Have you been challenged lately?
OL challenges you to draw out a deeper level of technical understanding along with key non-technical characteristics like problem-solving, deeper analysis, self-awareness, self-critique, managing tasks and reasoning. Redefine who you are by LEARNING
Not All stress is bad.
During physical exercise we put our bodies through stress so that we get a good result. The same is true for our brains. Our OL platform engages your brain. No longer do you have to mindlessly click from screen to screen to get a worthless certificate. It's time to LEARN!
Open Learning (OL) is different from typical training platforms. First of all, there are no "courses"; we do Challenges instead. Second, the steps to complete each Challenge aren’t laid out for you. Instead, you’re encouraged to figure it out. We want you to explore and wrestle with things. We want you to engage your passions in order to analyze and problem solve. If we just gave you the steps to complete the objective you wouldn't learn as much. GiiLD's OL platform is supposed to be challenging. It is designed to help you really learn.
How does it work
Pick a Challenge
In GiiLD you don’t take courses, you do Challenges. Pick a subject you’re passionate about to really learn the skills you want.
GiiLD Challenge requirements are intentionally "loose" in order to challenge you to problem-solve.
