WHAT TYPES OF ONLINE LEARNING ARE AVAILABLE
Qualifications – We can deliver and assess a range of Regulated Qualifications, 100% online without the need for the learner to attend a classroom or site based assessment. This means that Regulated Qualifications can now be completed anywhere, anytime in any place when it is convenient for employers and learners alike, all you need is an internet connection and a webcam.
E-Learning – Involves using a computer or laptop to deliver a course, whether it’s in a Training Centre, part of your in-house employee training, or to further your own career at home. All e-Learning courses include a multiple choice test to confirm understanding of the content.
Packages – Are a collection of e-Learning products that can be purchased together as a “Package” that offers a saving compared to purchasing the products individually.
E-Books – are electronic Workbooks that come in a PDF format and provide a more texted based solution for those individuals who prefer learning in this way. Each course can be read on a computer, a laptop, or any mobile device and all involve a multiple choice test to confirm understanding of the content.
Video learning – Video is a useful alternative to e-learning and e-books for learners who prefer to study and retain information best when information is presented to them in a visual format. Each video course involves a multiple choice test to confirm understanding of the content.
Distance Learning – Distance Learning courses are facilitated by physical Workbooks and liaison with the course tutor via the post. All work is completed by the learner and posted back to their tutor who will in turn provide any necessary feedback by return. All Distance Learning courses are completed by a Multiple choice test to confirm understanding of the content. These courses are currently only available to existing customers via your e-Learning Portal.
Q. How do I access the online (Blended) Learning once I have purchased it?
A. The first time you make a purchase you will be emailed a link to access your Blended Learning Portal, please bookmark this in your browser, or save the email with the link. When you login to your Blended Learning Portal using the username and password you created when registering, your purchases will be available to view, you can follow progress, see when tests have been completed and access your certificates. After your first purchase, you must make further purchases directly through your Blended Learning Portal.
Q. Do I need an Access Code to login to the Blended Learning Portal?
A. No, normally, all managers and learners can login using their email address and a password. The only time you would need an access code would be if your manager has created your account for you and didn’t know your email address. In this instance the system will generate an access code for the manager to give to you for you to use. The access code has nothing to do with special offers or discounts.
Q. I’m purchasing online Learning on behalf for my Organisation, how do I manage my learners and monitor their progress?
A. If you make an initial purchase for more than one item of online learning, an account will be created for you as a manager and you will be emailed a link to access your Blended Learning Portal. Please bookmark this link in your browser, or save the email with the link.
When you login to your Blended Learning Portal, your purchases will be available to view, you can create users and the system will automatically email them with their own personal login details for their own Blended Learning Portal; allocate E-Learning; e-Books; Video Learning; and Qualifications to different users; you can follow their progress; see when tests have been completed and access their certificates; you can also set up accounts for other managers within your organisation so that they can manage online learning for their staff. After your first purchase, you must make further purchases directly through your Blended Learning Portal.
