Innovative training solutions

A new e-learning platform, which incorporates the existing virtual classroom experience with innovative technologies has been developed. Users can now directly gain professional skills while performing working tasks and activities thanks to a programmed and assisted learning course.
Innovative training solutions
The platform, designed by an Italian company involves a training arena that makes teaching contents, news, in-depth study, community services, assistance and advice available to users. This is all achieved through uniting voice, interactive content and videos via various training such as e-learning, classroom training, distance tutoring and presence tutoring.

The actual format is comprised of slides, images, animation, voices, exercises and audio and video texts. Its greatest asset lies in the various channels of communication available. For example, users can communicate online with one another and have access to immediate feedback. Files can thus be downloaded and ideas, data, information and explanations can be exchanged. Furthermore this can be tailored for personalised courses, companies that want to incorporate their own training, as well as research centres and universities accordingly.

The advantages of the e-learning platform are multifold. It can facilitate companies in their ongoing need to increase training effectiveness. The user can individually manage time devoted to training, which makes it more efficient in terms of company resources. Since classroom interaction is simulated, training is more personable and friendly in its approach. Furthermore, companies can benefit from a quick return on investments while also reducing travel and conference call costs.

The company is seeking commercial agreements and technical assistance in the form of training or consultancy to help with the set-up of the system.
