INTRODUCING SILICON SLOPES ACADEMY
Silicon Slopes partners with Agilix Labs, Inc. to create Silicon Slopes Academy, a nextgen learning platform for entrepreneurs
OREM, UT – October 13, 2021 – As of 2020, Utah’s high-tech industry accounted for 1 in 7 Utah jobs and nearly one-fifth of the state’s economic output. From 2009 to 2019, its growth represented the second-fastest in the nation. Silicon Slopes, the nonprofit organized in 2008 to support that growth and make it accessible to all, is the “voice, hub, and heart” of the industry in the state.
Silicon Slopes already reaches a unique audience of more than 250,000 each month and hosts more than 200 events, annually, attracting 40,000+ attendees. We are proud to announce that their reach is about to get a little bit broader with the launch of Silicon Slopes Academy, powered in partnership by AWS and Utah’s own Agilix Labs, Inc.
Silicon Slopes Academy, built on Agilix Dawn, is a nextgen learning platform that delivers the most relevant and engaging online training and connects learners with expert coaches at any time, anyplace, and on any device. It introduces a better way to learn by incorporating consistent human interaction into the learning process, with peer feedback, conversation and collaboration, and on-demand coaching that keeps training personal and teaches skills that translate in the real world.
“Silicon Slopes believes opportunity only exists to all if we’re willing to extend it to all.” In partnership with AWS, Agilix is happy to join Silicon Slopes in giving “a chance to anyone with a desire to take and earn it.”
Agilix partners with educational content publishers to deliver branded learning experiences at scale. Those experiences are delivered through a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) model in the AWS cloud to millions of learners in 20 languages and 200 countries using our Buzz, Publish Anywhere, and Dawn platforms. Buzz supports blended, remote, and virtual learning for direct instruction, personalized, project-based, and mastery/competency learning models. With Publish Anywhere, content partners can author courses once and distribute them into any LTI-compliant LMS. Dawn enables coaches and trainers to deliver engaging, interactive video instruction and social interactions on mobile devices.
