NETGEAR is a worldwide provider of easy-to-use, high performance networking solutions. NETGEAR designs and develops products that enable home and business customers to share broadband Internet access, network office peripherals, and enjoy multimedia entertainment among multiple personal computers and other Internet-enabled devices.
NETGEAR employed ReadyGo Web Course Builder (WCB) to create its online university.
NETGEAR wanted to create an online, self-education tool for its Web site, with an eye toward recruiting more solution providers focused on the Small-Medium Business market. The education web site, dubbed NETGEAR University, is part of the company's Powershift Partner Program that is aimed at helping partners get educated about NETGEAR 's variety of products and solutions. "It's really part of a soft ramp-up of a certification program as we continue to build our channel," said Ray Robidoux, president of NETGEAR. "Most people know NETGEAR as a consumer product company, but we are definitely in the business space."
The ReadyGo WCB Solution
All of NETGEAR University's courses were built using ReadyGo Web Course Builder. "ReadyGo Web Course Builder gave us the flexibility and price performance so that we could economically build sound, easy-to-access courses," said Elaine Soo Sales Engineer - NETGEAR VAR channel.
