NACCE & IBM Pilot Program

IBM recently launched IBM SkillsBuild, which brings together two world-class, skills-based learning programs—"Open P-TECH" and "SkillsBuild"—under one brand. Through IBM SkillsBuild, students, educators, job seekers, and the organizations that support them can access free digital learning, resources, and support focused on the core technology and workplace skills needed to succeed in "new collar" jobs. They'll be able to visit the new IBM SkillsBuild website and opt into the learning experience that's right for them.

NACCE and IBM has convened five member colleges to review the SkillsBuild platform to develop an educator resource portal, or toolkit for future faculty to take advantage of the resources offered on the platform within their classroom to support learning outcomes and student success. Those member colleges are: 

  • Borough of Manhattan Community College
  • City College of San Francisco
  • Hocking College
  • Houston Community College
  • Tallahassee Community College
