Global franchise company Coldwell Banker Real Estate has launched an online learning portal for its approximately 87,000 agents, the company announced today.
The portal, BlueView, is offered at no additional cost by the company’s educational arm, Coldwell Banker University, through the company’s intranet.
BlueView offers training videos and podcasts, online courses, blogs written by industry experts, and a peer-to-peer video program called "Best of Blue." Each of these portal components allow users to post comments and collaborate online, the company said.
"Training is crucial for our agents’ development and success," said Budge Huskey, the company’s president and chief operating officer, in a statement. "We feel it is important as a company to offer innovative tools like the BlueView portal to help our network become even more efficient and productive. I am a huge advocate of peer-to-peer learning."
BlueView is accessible through mobile devices such as laptops, iPads and smartphones.
In March, Coldwell Banker rolled out an online learning portal for managers and brokers called Managing Broker Academy. The portal features videos, podcasts, a broker blog, a real-time news feed, online discussion groups, and a virtual professional development counselor.
