How online training and learning works

Our online training utilises action-based learning:

first we learn, then we do.

People sometimes believe that online learning is inferior to face-to-face learning. But a student can be engaged or disengaged whether learning face-to-face or online.

The benefits of online learning include reach, repetition (through having the materials on hand to review multiple times), and easy reference.

We utilize all the opportunities the internet offers us, including video format, audio format, written format, visual models and graphics, online forums and groups.

Depending on which program you participate in, students are paired into accountability partners and the latest research into learning efficacy is drawn upon to motivate and inspire students to participate.
