Our Most Popular Features
Applied Learning Via Missions
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.
Missions: real-world challenges that provide the opportunity to practice new skills through relevant, experiential assignments 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 each others’ Missions or final assignments according to a designated rubric.
Check out a blog post about how one of our partners is using Missions to great effect with a video upload “teachback” Mission and a Snapshot case study of professional services client who has used Missions centered around creating real work products.
“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. It’s so simple to use but so powerful for our learners, offering them a dynamic experience that really increases the impact of our program.”

Social & Collaborative Features
Utilize the best aspects of social and collaborative learning, right within the learning experience itself (no need to jump out to another program) — the features are built into the platform.
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 timezone boundaries easily
“3 Great Reasons to Use Discussion Forums“ delves into why you should use 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.

- Points can be assigned via various schema, to reflect criticality of content, or confirm competence with a passing grade minimums.
