Our Training Method

Flexible Training

Our interactive web-based training allows students to take courses anytime and anywhere. Students have the flexibility to study the courses that provide exactly the information they need. Our courses are professionally designed, self-paced and have integrated grading systems. The interactive courses are presented in real-time with audio, video and text formats. New courses are introduced every semester with same high quality course design and content.

The Courses

Our web-based training library is comprised of professional, technical, and business skills courses. Over 2000 topics are currently available and they can be studied individually or as part of a full training program. The information is designed specifically for efficient presentation through the internet at home or through business networks. The ongoing development of interactive training has been paramount to our success.

Time Efficiency

E-Learning is a unique alternative to traditional on-campus courses. It affords students the opportunity to learn with flexibility of time and place while maintaining access to professionally crafted coursework. Courses may be paused and restarted to help managing the time constraints of your job or home life. The distance learning program has removed the barriers of location and time, making a college education accessible and affordable for every student at any age. Distance learning courses allow students who do not have the flexibility to attend traditional on-campus classes to pursue their educational goals. Distance learning courses also offer students taking on-campus courses a more flexible class schedule. Distance education allows everyone the opportunity to access higher education.

E-Learning Philosophy

We believe that a significant component of today's competence in the workforce is the ability to access the internet and use this as a learning tool. Online learning is a model that addresses a variety of learning styles by
incorporating visuals, sound and interactivity along with the opportunity for continuous review. Online learning also furthers our goal of increasing access to higher education. It affords the student the opportunity to learn with flexibility of time and place while maintaining access to other college services.


By obtaining global partnerships with the top companies and authors, we can provide a wide range of self-study courses with open enrollment in nearly every subject imaginable. Our goal is to provide options for adults to improve their education in a convenient and effective format through our partnerships with colleges and universities worldwide. We feel it is very important to continuously augment our course offering to match the changing needs of our students.

Is Distance Learning Right for Me?

While E-Learning provides students the opportunity to pursue academic programs around their personal schedules, it also requires students to be self-disciplined and motivated in the pursuit of their academic goals. Even though weekly studies and participation are essential, students can attend class anytime of the day from anywhere. Many students find this mode of learning to be the best option when juggling time constraints with work and personal responsibilities. Online students need to be proficient in the Windows environment, but the technology involved is not overly complex. Students need a reliable connection to the internet to participate in the online classes.

Ease of Use

Online education is not easier than traditional classroom based learning. The exception is that you are not tied to a traditional class schedule. Students are expected to produce a substantial amount of quality work while maintaining a high level of interaction in the virtual classroom. Taking a course over the Internet requires the ability to work independently and to devise your own regular schedule for "attending" class and completing assignments. Students learning online have a greater responsibility for their own success than students in traditional classroom settings. It is important that you have the self-discipline and motivation to work on a flexible schedule without getting behind. Students must be prepared to dedicate several hours a week to their online course if they wish to be successful.

Traditional vs. Online Study

Although most learning takes place outside of the classroom, most of your time spent as a learner has probably been in a "traditional" classroom. Traditional classroom learning is often focused on the instructor. Information tends to flow from instructor to students, and as a result can be more passive for students. The instructor must somehow transfer his or her knowledge to the learners. It should be noted that many instructors in the traditional classroom utilize a very learner-focused framework. However, most instructors were taught in instructor-focused classrooms and it is very hard for them to break from this mold. In the online environment, the coursework is much more suited for a learner-focused environment. As a result of students constructing their own learning, they are considered to be more active. This type of active learning forces instructors to be guides for the learner. Online learners have more responsibility for their learning and instructors spend much more time providing resources than delivering content. Traditional classes and online classes often use different technologies, types of media, and forms of interaction. These new types of technology and interaction contribute to the focus on the learner. With its wider range of technologies, media and forms of interaction, e-Learning can help instructors meet a broader range of students needs.
