Finding the answers we need and taking control of our own learning approach? Sounds like a win to me. Self-directing learning encourages us to improve our wellbeing, professional development and personal improvement.

Creating Nuggets

Curate content

HowNow comes pre-packed with dozens of free content providers from wellbeing experts, leadership guides, tech news and business insiders - you can compile content from where you're most likely learning from already. Saving you precious time!

Give people the ability to create and share

When you're giving people the opportunity to share content - you're also reinforcing a culture of learning. Fill the knowledge gaps with that tribal knowledge that would otherwise never be recorded and use it time and time again.

Unified Search

Whatever you need, we got it.

HowNow integrates with content streams, your shared drives, dozens of apps and any content libraries you're already using. Our unified search means you can surface what you need wherever it is. It's the most powerful tool in your self-directed learning arsenal.

HowNow also has incredible smart personalised recommendations based on you. Our AI takes into consideration your job title, Channels you're subscribed to content, content you've previously viewed and the things you search for so that every single user has a custom experience. After all - that's what an LXP is for.

We also send you a weekly digest of learning materials you might be interested in so you're not missing out.
