The format for our on-line courses is quite consistent for all courses.
We're using the on-line training platform from
iSpringOnline.com. All of our
classes are on-going and self-paced, meaning once you are registered, you can
work at any time - and for as long as you wish.
Here's what you'll be doing during the class. Activities include:
Working through content list - Every class provides a content list. You simply
work through the list in the order it is provided. The status for each
activity is shown, so you can easily tell where you left off.
Viewing presentation videos - Every lesson includes a colorful
and animated presentation. With many courses, the presentations include
audio narrations.. These presentations will provide you with graphic visuals and help you understand the
most complex course topics.
Reading material - Every lesson contains a comprehensive Adobe
Acrobat (.pdf) file that you can view, print, and save. Thisbprovides you with a
permanent reference for course materials during the class and long after the
class is over. If you print everything, you'll have a manual that contains over
Practice in the reading material -
With most courses, many lessons include quizzes and activities right in the lesson text.
Answers are provided close by. These practice exercises are not graded -
they simply provide you with the ability to practice before you work on the
assignment/s that will be graded.
Taking tests - Every lesson in every class includes a
test. When your finished studying the presentation and reading material, take
the test. Grading is automatic and immediate - and results are
automatically emailed to me for recording. You will receive a confirmation
and complete results - usually within 24 hours of taking a test.
Doing programming activities (graded)- for many of the lessons
(in the programming classes),
you'll be asked to do a coordinate sheet exercise or a programming assignment. This is the second way that we
confirm your understanding of presented material. You submit your programming
assignments (via email) for grading. In most cases, grading is done within 24 hours.
Remember, these courses are self-paced. You'll be progressing through
the course as quickly or slowly as you like. You control the pace. Once
you enroll in the class, you'll begin (of course) with lesson one. We want you
to get the most out of this course, so we require that you complete all
activities in one lesson one before you continue with the
