Our ‘Core Content’ has been hand curated and is made up of thousands of pieces of freely-available content.
It is included with the LXP as standard - but it can be turned off if an organisation feels it doesn’t suit them, or needs to use entirely their own. To 'turn off' the Core Content, contact us via the Help Centre or your account manager.
Our Content Curation Approach - for our 21 Focus Areas:
The approach taken is as follows:
- An initial piece of research to find out the thought leaders in a subject area, striving to identify a diverse group of “gurus”
- Another piece of research to find authoritative journals and websites for a specific area.
- Exploring both data sets above to see if appropriate content is produced i.e. from secure websites, minimal adverts, well presented etc
- Selecting material that was felt to give an insight, a viewpoint, action points etc.
- Looking to obtain a variety of different types of content ie videos, podcasts, articles, white-papers, blogs etc.

Using Core Content
1. You can use the core content without doing anything at all.
By default, your learners will be asked some questions as part of the 'Orientation' process which will result in Recommended Focus Areas. They can then see these on their dashboard, view the recommended content within each one, and choose what they would like to do.
These recommended Focus Area will sit in the dashboard alongside anything else they have been assigned by the organisation or have previously chosen.
If you wish to turn off the Orientation functionality for any reason, you can do this in:
Admin > Services > Develop
You can re-take this assessment at any time. To do this:
My Reports > New Skill Assessment
2. You can duplicate and edit Core Focus Areas
If you want to make a Core Focus Area more specific to your context, you can duplicate and re-name a Focus Area. You can also copy the tags (to bring the recommended content into your copy) and add additional tags related to any Learning Experiences of your own you have added (see 'Learning Experiences' article for more details).
3. You can just use the content, in your own Focus Areas
If you prefer to create your own Focus Areas, you can still make use of the core content Learning Experiences using tags.
For example, you could create a new Focus Area called 'Coaching at _______(your organisation)', then either assign or recommend Learning Experiences of your own, and then also add the 'Core: Coaching' tag - this would add all the core Coaching content as optional recommendations to your new Focus Area.
