eLearning & Training Development
What is eLearning?
eLearning uses electronic technologies in the delivery of learning, training or education. Computers and electronic devices, such as tablets and mobile phones, connect learners to instructional material. eLearning can be “on demand,” a convenience greatly valued by users. Whatever the format, our focus is on a participant-centered approach.
Innovative technology makes it possible to take training at any time and use a variety of electronic devices. Learners can log in from any location as their schedule allows and move at their own pace. Innovation further improves the dynamics of learning by injecting animations, streaming videos, graphics and interactive exercises, as well as connecting participants across the globe. Training participants join webinars or complete self-paced learning modules on a flexible schedule, instead of bearing the expense of travel to scheduled classroom instruction at designated locations.
ORAU training specialists can help you realize the many advantages associated with eLearning. Primary benefits are convenience, cost savings, fast delivery and ease of updating materials. eLearning can broaden your reach to new audiences and present multiple opportunities for earning education credits. Trainings are customized to effectively meet the needs of specialized audiences.
What we do
ORAU training specialists and instructional designers can transform your traditional classroom training to online learning via custom websites or a learning management system. Also, we can design blended learning experiences where participants study modules independently online and then participate together through either webinars or in-person sessions at on-site classrooms or laboratories.
The flexibility of eLearning makes it possible for training to be very mobile. ORAU training specialists can conduct webinars that span globally via the Internet, or they can be at your location to lead and provide technical assistance and logistical support during training workshops or meetings. Also, we can host engagement activities at symposiums or deliver speed tutorials on devices set up at conference booth spaces.
Furthermore, ORAU evaluation specialists can develop knowledge checks or scenario-based activities throughout the course material so learners can assess their understanding and retention of the material, and the evaluation specialists can conduct post-training surveys to measure the impact of the learning experience.
