In e-learning you certainly get what you pay for. Sure, there are free courses out there. Have you tried them? By and large they’re not great and we hazard a guess that you’ll find yourself wondering off to Facebook after about 5 minutes... ‘Free’ and ‘value’ are contradictory terms.
Skills Online Group has produced high-quality online training that aims to grab your attention from the start of module 1 and keep your attention all the way through to the final knowledge test… It naturally it takes time, effort and industry specialists to produce this kind of training. Instructional Designers, Script-writers, Trainers, Presenters, Flash Animators and Designers are employed to make sure that the final product is engaging and seen a capable substitute for classroom-based training.
Affordability is a cornerstone of our business and we work hard to make sure that our courses are terrific value-for-money. Similar CIM Accredited workshop-based training in the UK is approx. 400% more expensive than Skills Online Group training. (UK day workshop in SEO used as a benchmark, courses ranging from £450 to £600)
Cutting-edge huh? 100%. Let us explain why…
Well, for starters we modelled our Learning Management System (LMS) on the world’s most prolific and tested Open-Source Web-based Learning Content Management System (LCMS) which has been deployed over 40,000 times globally. We then customised it and built new functionality specific to our requirements.
So that’s the backbone taken care of.
We then designed our own Learner Interface (sometimes called a Course Player) and we introduced some pretty nifty functionality, like being able to hyperlink directly from the Player (perfect for offering cases studies, examples etc.) and offering the ability to write personal notes associated with your e-learning within the Learner Interface itself. We bet your old lecturer couldn’t do that!
As for the course itself, each course includes various mini-quizzes to reinforce key learning points, downloadable course notes and a final knowledge test to gauge your understanding of the learning content.
A Completion Certificate is automatically generated when you complete the course. Plus you can save your progress, watch that episode of CSI and then return to your module when you’re ready.
Skills Online Group has received full The Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) accreditation for our courses. This means that time spent training count towards your Continued Professional Development (CPD).
Accreditation from the world’s leading marketing organisation, the CIM, is a massive boost to our business.
It indicates that our online training complies with their stringent standards for Continued Professional Development and online training.
The CIM is the leading international body for marketing and business development. CIM provides marketing qualifications, training and development to marketers globally.
Ask any experienced recruiter and they will tell you that today’s difficult economic climate results in tough competition for good jobs. Give your career prospects a boost by learning new skills which can take you in a new direction or help you get that promotion you’ve set your sights on! Make yourself more employable and stand out from the crowd….
Skills Online Group will shortly be offering certification courses in internet marketing, pay-per-click marketing, social media, conversion optimisation, SEO copywriting and more. Please register on the site to keep up to date with these developments.
OK, so you want to learn new skills? Let’s choose an option:
Take a whole day off work to travel to some crappy hotel to sit on an uncomfortable chair, drink cheap coffee and hear somebody drone on using Powerpoint or a whiteboard….
Get your slippers on. Make a cup of tea and get comfy on the couch at home. Launch your training course. Save your progress and return after you’ve had dinner. Finish module after CSI. Go to bed. Start a new module whilst at Starbucks on a Saturday morning…
Ok, so we’re not going to please everyone all the time… Perhaps you love hotel coffee and those awful, cheap conference venue chairs?
Still need some convincing? Here’s some food for thought. According to recent US research, 40% of every Dollar spent on traditional training is spent on travel costs and in the US 69% of all corporate training hours are now being conducted outside of the traditional classroom-based, face-to-face format. Go figure!
There you have it. 6 compelling reasons why it makes sense to undertake your professional e-Learning through us.
