Nugget Finder

Our intuitive Nugget Finder is provided with our Learning Nuggets.

Instead of logging into an LMS, calling the help desk or searching the internet, our Nugget Finder delivers the right solution directly within the business workflow.

The Nugget Finder is a convenient search engine that gives users an easy way to quickly find the right Nugget. Relevant information can be found with just a few clicks. Learners simply open the Nugget Finder and enter search terms. Filters can also be applied for searching specific applications and content languages.


Nuggets for all learning styles

Some types of learners only need text to grasp new facts. Other learners, on the other hand, benefit from a more detailed explanation using screenshots or a video.

That's why our nuggets are built in a four-step approach. Every type of learner will find the optimal format in our nuggets, which guarantees optimal support according to personal preference.

A single nugget includes these four elements:

Written step-by-step instructions are given in text form to help perform the task - here for example, to quickly support an end-user in learning how to participate in a Microsoft Teams meeting.

Users who prefer visuals can choose to view the step-by-step instructions together with application screens and illustrations.


The functional task is explained and demonstrated in a short video tutorial.

In addition, closed captioning can be switched on or off for those who prefer to read the video instructions or if there is no audio device available.

There is also an option to view the video in full-screen mode.


The light bulb button provides additional information and tips on the respective program function.
