Time for a Professional Reboot?
Soft skills are some of the most sought-after employee skills in today’s workplace. In fact, 92% of recruiters say soft skills are critical tools they look for in their applicants.
At the Academy for eLearning, we make soft skill and leadership development accessible for learners everywhere.
We cover a wide range of timely, relevant topics that will assist you in practical and applicable ways to reboot your professional skills and level up your career.
We’re Obsessed with Your Success!
The Academy for eLearning is built upon the foundation of providing support and training to individuals and teams through eLearning, all while nurturing a sense of community and belonging.
It’s what makes us stand out in the field: our commitment to the people, not the platform. We believe that combining technology with powerful storytelling, human touch and community is key to effective online training and education. Our modules are transformational, packed with practical application, thought-provoking exercises, and plenty of opportunities for authentic interaction and connection.
We invite and encourage our learners to participate and contribute.
Our goal is to capitalize on the joy of learning while enhancing our learners’ skills, abilities and knowledge.
Facilitators Who Care
There’s a difference between an instructor and a facilitator. At the Academy for eLearning we believe in engaging with our learners. Unlike many others eLearning platforms, we do not subscribe to a ‘sit and git’ philosophy. Our facilitators are actively involved, exhibit care, empathy and trust for our learners.
Our visual training sessions are beneficial and effective for group training. We feature a number of small group sessions throughout the year on a variety of relevant topics.
Personalized coaching is available and is customized to help individual learners. We offer support on specific levels (i.e. not only answering questions but specially filling an existing gap in skills and confidence).
Interactivity & Engagement with Others
One of our core values is firmly rooted in inclusion and community. We offer our learners the opportunity to connect with our community, build their professional network and contribute ideas for ongoing curriculum development.
Our Core Values
We believe that when we live by our core values, everything we do will have purpose.
We act with integrity.
We speak up for what’s right even when it’s the harder option.
We make a difference.
We proactively look for ways to improve ourselves and our company culture.
We care about each other.
We encourage each other to engage our hearts and minds and value meaningful connection.
We reimagine the possible.
We know that nothing great has ever come from sticking with the status quo, so we seek to disrupt, challenge, change and evolve.

Spending time on the water soothes Nomi’s soul. So much, in fact, that she spent an entire year living on a boat! As her mom always said, she walks to the beat of her own drummer! No matter the tune, she’s always looking for a way to serve the next person. As an added bonus to our team, Nomi has two Dachshunds that come to work with her everyday!
