The University of Central Oklahoma has launched LX Studio, an agency specializing in workforce development solutions for organizations of any type and size. LX Studio is the only agency in the state that provides both customized education strategy to assess a business’s education needs and the actual design of training solutions.
“The needs and challenges faced by today’s organizations are unmatched in modern history. At UCO, we know how important learning is to creating organizational opportunities and personal transformation,” said UCO President Patti Neuhold-Ravikumar.
“LX Studio is your organization’s strategic partner to help navigate these complex times and thrive.”
LX Studio’s services include organizational learning strategy, education and training design, online and blended learning solutions, micro-credentials, customizable workforce development content, professional certificates, state-of-the-art learning spaces and design facilitation.
“The launch of LX Studio gives organizations a new way to re-imagine the learning opportunities they provide to employees, students, association members and customers,” said Bucky Dodd, Ph.D., chief learning innovation officer at UCO and director of LX Studio.
“We believe learning is the catalyst for a better world. Through collaboration and innovation, we can help organizations realize their full potential.”
At the heart of LX Studio solutions is the Learning Environment Modeling (LEM) design system. Developed at Central, this proprietary system helps simplify the learning design process, improves collaboration and communication. LEM empowers users with a highly visual system that breaks down learning design into more manageable pieces.
LX Studio also offers a small business incubator program that helps small, start-up businesses with specialized coaching, affordable office space rental in downtown Oklahoma City and significant tax benefits.
LX Studio was developed by bringing together UCO’s award-winning Institute for Learning Environment Design (iLED) and Customized Education units with enhanced capabilities aligned to meet the dynamic needs of today’s organizations.
