Singapore-based digital learning technology company, Kydon, today announced the official launch of ZilLearn Plus (ZilLearn+).
ZilLearn+ is an extension of the company’s learning platform, ZilLearn. Kydon is one of Asia’s leading digital learning technology companies and a key partner in Singapore’s Alliance for Action on EduTech.
ZilLearn+ builds on the ZilLearn platform first launched in January 2021, which provides adults with personalised skills analyses through the use of an Artificial Intelligence (AI)-driven skills analytics tool and a vast resource of diverse international courses.
The rapid creation, distribution, engagement and adaptation of knowledge is to be expected in the digital age. Our mission is to make this scalable, affordable and at a high quality globally. I believe Singapore can lead the charge in bringing such innovation to the global stage.Mr David Yeo, Kydon Group CEO
Priced at S$198 per annum, the annual subscription costs can be offset with SkillsFuture Credit for Singaporeans aged 25 years and above.
No upfront cash is required upon subscription payment.
ZilLearn+ courses are available on the ZilLearn app for learners to access quality learning anytime and anywhere, and pick up new skills at their own pace and convenience.
Futureproofing workers for today and tomorrow’s demands
ZilLearn+ traces its origins to Singapore’s Emerging Stronger Taskforce (EST), and is developed to meet the employability needs of the rapidly evolving digital economy.
In Recommendation 4 of the EST’s report published this year, the EST advocated for learning recommender systems to support the training efforts of businesses and unions, and enable more self-directed learning.
In this spirit, ZilLearn’s career-skills and learning platform aims to help Singaporean workers identify their skills gaps in order to stay agile in their careers, and to position Singapore as a talent hub for businesses and workers.
In Singapore, ZilLearn has worked with government agencies like Enterprise Singapore (ESG) to bring this vision to life.
We are happy to see the successful launch of Kydon’s ZilLearn+ platform, which has potential to help Singapore training providers and education providers transform the way they offer learning and development digitally.Mr Patrick Lim, Director for Leisure, Hospitality and Education, Enterprise Singapore
As a part of the SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) pilot initiative to support subscription-based online learning platforms, ZilLearn+ has also been made even more accessible to Singaporeans.
As part of a two-year pilot, SkillsFuture Credit can be used to offset subscriptions for selected online learning platforms such as ZilLearn+. We hope that more Singaporeans will be able to benefit from micro-learning courses that are relevant, well developed, and delivered in a convenient format.Mr Tan Kok Yam, Chief Executive of SkillsFuture Singapore
To ensure resources are kept updated, new content will be added to ZilLearn+ weekly, covering the full spectrum of current and emerging skill sets.
ZilLearn+ continues to work with local training institutions and adult educators, while also curating courses from South Korea, Taiwan and Southeast Asian countries to bring a greater diversity of learning content to learners in Singapore and the region.
In the months ahead, the platform will continue to evolve with the rollout of new capabilities aimed at building a dynamic ecosystem of learning across borders.
