The Filtered Approach

Filtered is a UK eLearning publisher offering a unique approach delivering eLearning that is personalised to the learner's needs using their proprietary adaptive algorithms driven by real user data. Working with the Filtered approach a learner is not taught everything, but rather they are driven to only study what they need to learn by stripping out what they already know and what is not useful to them.

At the start of an eLearning module the learner is asked a series of questions about themselves and their role. This data is used to identify similar learners and to assess what content those people found most valuable and this information is blended back with the learner’s data to recommend a personalised study programme.

The Filtered method is designed to reduce the learner’s workload by 20% - 50% over traditional eLearning courses. A study undertaken by Filtered involving 3,000 learners evidenced a 26% greater improvement in skills in those learners using the Filtered approach.

Filtered’s routes as a learning provider are in desktop IT, and more specifically the use of spreadsheets (Excel) in business. They have recently published the results of a large study of Excel skills carried out in conjunction with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) and involving 45,000 professionals. The results are remarkable and evidence that Excel skills, even amongst the Accountancy professionals, are still low, especially in terms of skills in data handling and data analysis.

The Filtered courses offer organisations a tightly targeted and highly cost-effective approach to addressing such specific skills gaps as those highlighted in the Excel study above.
