Intrepid Learn's Most Popular Features & Capabilities

With Intrepid Learn, you can have everyone you need to experience the same online learning with consistency and quality, at scale, at speed. Our clients can't even imagine how they'd solve the problems they're solving with Intrepid Learn using any other modality.

Applied Learning via Shareable Missions and Peer Review

Complete the learning cycle by giving your learners the opportunity to practice new skills and apply new knowledge, reflect and share their findings, and demonstrate capability. In other words, this is not e-learning.

Missions: Real-world challenges that provide the opportunity to practice new skills through relevant, experiential assignments described step by step that bring key concepts and skills home. Can be used for both individual work and teamwork.

Field Reports: A summary of the Mission (written, visual, and/or video) that is uploaded and shared with peers for further social learning and harnessing of institutional wisdom.

Peer Review: Learners can review others’ Missions or final assignments according to a designated rubric for further points and sharing of institutional wisdom.

Check out a blog post about how one of our partners is using Missions to great effect with a video upload “teachback” Mission. You can also review a snapshot case study of a professional services client who has used Missions centered around creating real work products.

Discussion Forums
Clients are using discussion forums for a variety of learning purposes, including:

  • Reinforcing module topics and concepts
  • Solidifying cohort cohesion
  • Harnessing the “wisdom of the crowds”
  • Exchanging ideas across geographical and time zone boundaries

Moderators can surface key themes or questions easily, and learners can learn from each other through their own words and ideas. Capabilities include giving feedback at the asset level to course administrators.

Social Features
Learners can "like" and bookmark content, as well as provide feedback on the asset level to course designers. This makes it easy to collect responses and iterate.

"3 Great Reasons to Use Discussion Forums" delves into why you should use social features like discussion forums in online learning experiences, even if it makes you a little uncomfortable, and "What to Worry About When Moderating" covers how to keep discussion forums engaging and well-used.

Collaborative & Social Features
“We have been so happy with the design and performance of the Intrepid platform. The discussion forums have been the most powerful aspect, and I love the simplicity and openness of the format—our high-potential leaders are able to have great conversations amongst themselves easily. When I last looked at the current cohort, there were over 100 separate discussion threads going! And the whole platform looks great visually.”

Exploratory Microlearning: Prescriptive Learning Through Learning Paths

Guide your learners down a prescriptive learning path that delivers knowledge in a particular order through microlearning and short-form content.

  • Bite-sized content designed to be consumed in fifteen minutes or less
  • Popular content formats like video, documents, audio, e-learning, discussions, and knowledge checks to give you the flexibility you need
  • Threaded discussions at the content level—no need to log in to another engagement system
  • Optional pre-requisites can be set in order to guide learners, or left off for more exploratory learning

Gamification and Badging:

Motivation and Satisfying Progress Indicators

Motivate your learners through gamification with features that can be adjusted to suit your company culture. Hit the friendly competition sweet spot, or just ensure learners feel a sense of accomplishment as they progress.

Book a Demo


  • Leaderboard shows your learners how they’re doing against course goals or their peers
  • Badging reinforces the accomplishment of completing content and can be used to demonstrate capability
  • Points can be assigned via various schema to reflect criticality of content or confirm competence with passing grade minimums
  • Awards can be given by instructors directly to individuals or groups of learners for work done within or outside of the online experience—a great discussion forum comment or evidence of applying learning on the job, for instance

Check out the blog posts ”Gamification Two Ways: A Look at Learner Motivation” and “Love, Money or Glory: Upping Your Game” for more about the different gamification options best for different audiences and learning goals.

Cohorts and User Types:

Organize Your Learners in Multiple Ways and Release Content on a Timed Basis

You can segment and organize your learners into cohorts or by user type to make sure the right learner is getting the right learning experience at the right time.

  • Establish common learning experiences for groups of learners
  • Create multiple views and variations of the same course for different user groups and types (employees and managers or coaches, for instance)
  • Release content in a timed fashion for MOOC-like time-bound experiences, for instance Week 1 then Week 2. You can keep past content "open" or "close" it after a certain period of time to ensure learners are keeping up with their cohort.
