Take Advantage of Your Time At Home By Improving Yourself Through Distance Learning

This is an unprecedented time in history. With the coronavirus outbreak affecting all parts of the globe, individuals are trying to determine how they can independently learn, make data-informed decisions, and do their jobs effectively – all while being at home surrounded by family going through the emotional stressors of prolonged stays indoors and limited time outside.

Qlik offers two options for formal distance learning: live, instructor-led training (delivered virtually) and self-paced learning. Consider how the various elements of Qlik’s ‘distance learning’ training is designed to simulate many of the aspects of an ‘in-person’ training experience.

Imagine putting on a set of headphones and focusing on a hands-on task as you are led by the voice of an instructor. You can mentally remove yourself from the home environment and imagine yourself in a classroom setting, where the singular goal is to gain knowledge that allows you to more effectively and efficiently do your job.

When you have a question along the way, Qlik offers a ton of free resources, which are right at your fingertips to help you find an answer to that question at the moment of need. Below is my top-ten list of such resources:
