Once, when I was a child, my father explained to us that he’d been refused a job purely because of his ethnicity. He reported this without any animosity and only a hint of disappointment. Prejudice, discrimination, conscious and unconscious bias were merely accepted facts of life in those days.

In its various forms, e-learning has been hailed both as learning’s greatest and worst advance. As The Top 10 Benefits of E-learning article says, this debate rests upon the quality of the learning materials and their suitability to the learning challenge they’re intended to meet.
Engage in Learning has partnered up with the world's largest publisher of eBooks, Bookboon, to offer clients hundreds of eBooks on soft skills, personal development and employee effectiveness.
A common mission: hands-on top-quality content
So what is bite-size learning?
Bookboon's eBooks are the epitome of bite-sized learning. Averaging at 30 to 60 pages, the eBooks provide readers with practical hands-on content that can be accessed when they want, where they want it.
Finishing an eBook only takes an hour or two, allowing time-poor employees to implement tomorrow what they've learned today.
Usability is also a big driver for Bookboon as it prides itself on being called "the Netflix of eLearning" because of the ease-of-use and accessibility of the eBooks, online and offline.
"The partnership with Engage in Learning is a no-brainer for us, given the shared mission of the two organisations around providing engaging learning that is practical and effective." - Paul Catchpole, Director Channel Sales, Bookboon
Not only do we share a mission, there's also a perfect match when it comes to the topics covered by Bookboon's library.Over 1,300 eBooks written by industry-leading experts cover everything from communication skills over leadership to the Microsoft Office suite.
Some of the highest usage rates in the digital learning industry
So would your employees actually read the eBooks?
The stats are remarkable. On average, over 40% of the employees of Bookboon's clients actively use the eLibrary to brush up on their soft skills
