Javelin Learning Solutions brings a rich history of experience and innovation to business, education, healthcare and the public sector. Today, Javelin continues to build on its tradition of merging contemporary technology solutions with the best science from psychology and learning. Our Accelerate Learning Platform brings interactive simulations to the mobile environment as we build important work competencies such as communication, interpersonal and leadership skills, teamwork, empathy, and much more. We call it “training in your pocket.” It’s not passive training that you watch; rather, it’s active training in which the learner is immersed in the simulation that allows them to actually apply and practice what they are learning. And, of course, it is learning that is always on, 24/7/365. From training new doctors to preparing college graduates for the world of work to building the most productive sales forces, our platform is transforming business by accelerating the learning of people.
Rooted in industrial psychology, learning science and technology, Javelin’s inception dates back to the early 1980s, just as the PC revolution was beginning to transform industry and our society. From the beginning, Javelin leveraged its expertise in psychology, learning and technology to help build and accelerate the people side of business. In the early days, Javelin built leading edge technology systems for human resources and training that by today’s standard look primitive. We would test people’s knowledge and other attributes using a floppy disk and then transmit the results via modem to a central server. At the time, people thought it was so cool. No more paper answer sheets with bubbles to hand score or put in the scanner. Back then, floppy disks, 300 baud modems and 10MB hard drives were the bleeding edge. Technology has come a long way since then and so has Javelin. From rural health care systems to pharmaceutical multinationals, no team or organization is too small or too big for a Javelin transformation. Companies that have relied on Javelin to develop solutions and deliver results:
