NEW YORK, June 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Penton Technology today launched a new interactive Professional Education platform, https://education.pentontechnology.com, designed to enrich the online education experience for technology and Channel professionals.
"Our new education platform allows tech and Channel professionals to enhance their careers and advance their skills and access critical education on-demand," said Rod Trent, Education and Conferences Director for Penton Technology.
The contemporary site is easy to navigate on all mobile devices and desktops. Besides access to exclusive courses taught by seasoned pros, the platform features interactive material, including embedded videos, quizzes, photos and graphics. The courses have been designed to provide high-quality continuing education in a convenient and user-friendly format.
"We're seeing significant growth in interest in our deep dive, peer-based training at both our conferences and our eLearning classes," Trent added. "That's why we are creating a professional development ecosystem that capitalizes on learning-focused content at our conferences, on our web sites and forums, and at new on-site learning events we'll soon be rolling out across the country."
To celebrate the debut of the new Professional Education platform, by Thought Industries, Penton Technology is discounting all on-demand classes by 20% through July 15. The expanded course offerings complement Penton Technology's onsite conference training and new custom training for Channel partners and other companies. This year IT/Dev Connections, which runs Oct. 10-13 at the ARIA Resort in Las Vegas, will present new on-site classes on various cloud services and Windows 10, and introduce on-site Microsoft certifications for the first time, including some that will not be available at Microsoft's Ignite conference in September. Additionally, Penton will be delivering several new professional development workshops at upcoming Data Center World and HostingCon conferences.
Penton Technology also unveiled new logos on IT Pro and Supersite, reflecting the broader coverage of the multiplatform world in which technology professionals work and live. Microsoft Windows continues to be an important part of the focus of the sites and the mobile-first, cloud-first world.
"It's an exciting time to cover the computing world. No one can match the breadth of what we offer to the market – world-class professional education products and conferences, comprehensive industry news, in-depth expert how-to content, and community on our 16 web sites, forums and events serving technology, data center, hosting, prosumers and Channel professionals," said Marcia Parker, Executive Director of Content for Penton Technology. "That's what sets us apart."
