What is the Custom Program Builder?
The Custom Program Builder lets you craft customized skill-building journeys. In these journeys, you can include internal and external learning content, live sessions, hands-on projects, and more.
About Custom Program Access
Custom programs are internally created and moderated by Admins within your company. While some Custom Programs might be made public and available to the entire company, others are restricted to specific groups of users like new hires or recent promotions. You can access Custom Programs in My Company's Programs.
About Cohorts and Parent Programs
A cohort is a group of users assigned to complete a program together in the same period of time. Just as a single university-level course might have many classes, Custom Programs can support multiple groups of users.
Creating cohorts for Custom Programs ensures consistency and timeliness for training specific groups of Users. When using a Custom Program to onboard new hires, for example, a team might decide to add their new Users as a cohort to ensure they complete their foundational training together and on time.
While cohorts change as active users complete your Custom Program and new ones enroll, the Parent Program stays the same and is the basis for future versions of the Custom Program.
Custom Programs Compared to Marketplace Programs and Academies
Custom Programs are your company’s internally created programs, while Marketplace Programs are curated using external providers, like the popular Leadership Essentials course from EdX.
Academies typically combine both external Marketplace Programs and internal Custom Programs to create a multi-level skill-building experience.
