October 5, 2020

Today, the HP LIFE online platform welcomed students with a new look and user interface designed to create a more effective learning experience.

The new platform has all the free business and IT skills-building content learners expect and is now easier to access with improved responsiveness, a cleaner design, and powerful new features that make it simpler to enroll in courses, keep tabs on progress, and share achievements with others. Key features include:

  • Quick course search and selection
  • Real-time progress updates as individual course modules are completed
  • Certificates of Completion available to download immediately after courses are finished

“Since 2016, more than 340,000 people have improved their skills or learned new ones using HP LIFE. We’re excited to unveil our redesigned platform, which provides students with an improved learning experience and supports our goal of enrolling 1 million users by 2025,” said Stephanie Bormann, Manager, HP Foundation.
