While August is back to school season for students and teachers, education is always a timely topic for contractors who want to stay on top of the latest in roofing technology.
And just as virtual learning is transforming classroom education, digital technology is also changing the game for roofing contractors. Case in point: Owens Corning University’s (OCU’s) expanded Learning Management System (LMS) recently rolled out to all members of the Owens Corning Roofing Contractor Network (OCCN). The platform features easy-to-digest learning modules of 15 minutes or less that make it easy for roofing professionals to grab information anytime and anywhere – from their truck, on the jobsite, or between appointments.
Free to all OCCN members and offering an unlimited number of users, OCU is an on-demand education platform accessible from mobile and computer devices. Featuring multiple learning modules, sub-modules and educational videos, the platform compliments Owens Corning’s in-field courses and allows contractors to efficiently access information about Owens Corning products, warranties, business services, and more.
Because contractors enjoy “getting their game on”, future phases will include a gaming element featuring leaderboards that allow contractors to track education points, award badges for completed educational tasks, and see how they rank compared to their peers.
From helping onboard new employees to learning the fundamentals of roofing application, unlocking the mystery of warranties and more, the Owens Corning University platform builds on a portfolio of digital resources available to OCCN members. Additional resources on OCU include product and system content such as the Duration® Series shingles, SureNail® Technology information, an overview of the Total Protection Roofing System®*, roofing fundamentals, business service offerings and access to the entire Owens Corning video library.
