Technology as a “Learning on Demand” Education Tool

Making time to educate team members can be a significant challenge, particularly during the busy summer season. Fortunately, social communication channels such as “YouTube” have created a “learning on-demand” environment where content can be easily accessed anytime/anywhere. 

Combining serious content with convenient access, Owens Corning Roofing launched Owens Corning University (OCU) in 2019. Available at no charge to all  Owens Corning Roofing Contractor Network members, the OCU platform puts practical live and online educational content directly in the contractor’s hands, 24/7. 

And because there is never enough time in a contractor’s day, OCU learning modules are brief – just 15 minutes or less. The content is “phased” and supports all members of a contractor’s team – from sales to technical support. Recognizing that time is money, OCU resources support more efficient onboarding of sales teams, helping boost team members’ productivity while expanding their knowledge of business services and sales resources.

All team members can learn about Owens Corning® products and the powerful performance they deliver. For example, resources highlight powerful features that distinguish Owens Corning® products from competitors – like the performance  of  Duration® Series shingles with patented  SureNail® Technology and the  Total Protection Roof System®, an integrated system of components and layers designed to help perform in three critical areas.  Additional course content covers topics such as roofing fundamentals, details about warranties, and access to the Owens Corning Roofing video library of on-demand tutorials.

Practical, efficient, and designed to fit around the contractor’s schedule, Owens Corning University tools empower contractors to access learning on-demand. Learn more by checking out this short video
