The educational content available in the Qlik Continuous Classroom is always growing. New learning modules are added regularly, and existing learning modules are updated to reflect new features made available with new versions of Qlik products. Check out the calendar to learn about what has been released recently.
Qlik Continuous Classroom also offers Forums and Office Hours (run periodically) where you can have live discussions with other students and Qlik Instructors.
Rather than create long courses, the online content in the Qlik Continuous Classroom is organized into discrete learning modules. Each module is designed to be completed in one sitting. A module may be comprised of a variety of different learning media, including:
concept introduction presentation
video demonstration (with follow-along example)
short activity assignments
detailed exercise assignments
concept review presentation

The average time required to complete a learning module is around 60 minutes. And, sometimes a complete module is simply too much structure for a given topic. A learning spotlight is a vehicle which is streamlined such that you may complete a focused learning experience in 30 minutes or less.
A learning spotlight will leverage select media (like video, example files, and takeaway documents) to cover a variety of different types of topics. These topics may include things like: a step-by-step process, a high-level overview of a subject, a 'workaround' solution to a particular problem, an industry-specific solution, or a software capability which does not fit well into one of the broader learning module objectives.
The home page of the QCC will show the most 'Recently added' content. In addition, you may take a look at the calendar to view the dates where each new module was released or existing modules were updated.
With the release of a new version of a Qlik product, each module is reviewed for consistency and new features. If required, an updated version of the module is created. Check the 'Version information' section of each module to determine which version of software was used to design the learning content.
If you are ready to get started right away, even though your classroom training session is scheduled in a few days or weeks, you may use the Qlik Continuous Classroom in order to gain some experience right now. If you attend an instructor-led class already knowing the general structure of the software and the vocabulary which is specific to the Qlik environment, you will know what questions to ask of the instructor and you can make the most of the actual classroom learning opportunity.
The short answer is, yes. And, here are several reasons:
Let's face it, the amount of information one can take in and retain during a traditional classroom training experience, especially classes which take the entire day and run for multiple days in a row, is limited. The Qlik Continuous Classroom provides an opportunity to revisit concepts you were introduced to in a classroom setting, anytime you wish.
The learning content presented in the Qlik Continuous Classroom is developed independently from the materials used in actual classroom training sessions. Therefore, this represents a second chance for concepts to 'click' with what you are trying to do in your own data analysis environment.
Imagine that you need to do something in a Qlik product several weeks or even months following your classroom session. You know it was discussed in class and you know that the Qlik product can do it, but you simply cannot remember how to get it done. Spending a few minutes with a learning module in the Qlik Continuous Classroom may put you back on the path to working productively.
