SumTotal a Skillsoft group company, has enhances its suite of Learn, Talent and Workforce Management solutions within the SumTotal Talent Expansion Suite.

The SumTotal Talent Expansion Suite will extend the core platform to include next-generation gamification capabilities, a fully redesigned Talent Acquisition suite and the ability to aggregate content across third-party content platforms and massive open online courses (MOOCs) with Experience API (xAPI).

New features that help to simplify talent development include:

- Third-party content via xAPI: Building off of the suite's existing xAPI capabilities, SumTotal now helps employees and administrators aggregate content across third-party platforms and MOOCs. Users are no longer limited to using content from their learning management systems (LMS) in their talent management solutions. Instead, organizations enable flexible, learner-driven content use and learning record reporting through an array of channels and learning modalities. This enhanced functionality and support for xAPI results in more comprehensive eLearning standards and adaptive talent development experiences. YouTube is the first channel connected to the platform in this release.

- Gamification: Organizations can now create fun, competitive environments in which employees compete in pursuit of their development. Leaderboards, badges, points and other elements showcase individual development and compare it to colleagues' progress. The gamification elements work to excite the modern worker and increase employee engagement in global organizations of all sizes. With this new update, organizations have a greater ability to reward behaviors that achieve business goals and objectives.

- Redesigned talent acquisition and recruiting solution: A complete revamp of these tools will soon offer seamless support for internal and external candidates, and best-in-class interview team scheduling and training, complete with mobile-first candidate experiences. The enhancements benefit both hiring managers and job seekers. Improvements simplify and speed up how organizations engage and attract top talent by ensuring consistent experiences through streamlined requisition creation, schedule management, interview tracking and assessments. Job seekers will have a highly transparent experience with an interactive profile portal that provides visibility and mobile-friendly, on-the-go access to current and pending activities. With these new features, SumTotal delivers a modern, engaging user experience that makes it one of the easiest-to-use systems on the market.
