Digital Experience Learning Path

Use a data-driven approach to improve the effectiveness of a company website

How will this Learning Path help me and my business?

This structured e-learning activity will help you or your team understand how to use a data-driven approach for reviewing the effectiveness of a company desktop and mobile website and how this can improve its contribution to the organization.

What is a Learning Path?

Smart Insight’s Learning Paths are our unique interactive online training courses which explain concepts, give examples and test understanding.

Unlike many online e-learning courses, each module is self-contained, so you can quickly access guidance to help improve your marketing activities.

Common modules are shared between Learning Paths to avoid duplication of learning material. You can also complete the full Learning Path to earn a CPDSO certification.

We appreciate finding time for skills development is a challenge. Our Learning Paths enable training to be bite-sized, engaging and - crucially - results orientated. When combined with our suite of templates, you’ll soon be taking your marketing activities to the next level.

Accredited learning activities with the Continuing Professional Development Standards Office (CPDSO)

Each Smart Insights Learning Path has been independently assessed and accredited by the CPD Standards Office, so you can be confident that the quality of the learning and assessment experience has been audited and recognized for its quality.
