LiberCloud was formed in 2013 by Felice Curcelli and Sergio Venturino as a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution to improve the development and delivery of corporate and educational training. Felice and Sergio drew on years of educational and training experience to improve the experience of two key participants in the training activity: the content developer and trainer, and the individual responsible for learning the material. LiberCloud provides features that fully engage both the instructor and the learner, which results in better content, better training, more engagement during the training delivery and higher comprehension and retention.
Felice and Sergio understood a powerful contradiction: instructor-led training is often more engaging but is expensive and difficult to schedule, while self-paced or self-directed training is more accessible but can be less engaging and less valuable. LiberCloud provides a “best of both worlds” solution, providing interactive, engaging training platforms that can be used in either setting.
LiberCloud has its US headquarters in Saratoga, California and its European operations are based in London.
LiberCloud's mission is to completely rethink the way corporate and educational training is conducted, by engaging and empowering the two groups that matter most: the content developers and professional trainers responsible for developing and delivering content, and the students and learners responsible for gaining knowledge and demonstrating their comprehension. LiberCloud disrupts existing training delivery and content management solutions by combining the best of instructor-led engagement, blended learning, and new interactivity between the instructor and the student. LiberCloud's solution enables and liberates training instructors and engages students in a completely new way.
Our guiding principles
