Taking Off or Grounded Flight: Can mobile learning soar to new heights?

Have you explored the possibility of learning beyond the classroom or computer? Have you considered utilizing a mobile technology that most people are never without? Cell phones, iPods, and PDA’s are a part of our daily life and now there is an opportunity to incorporate their capabilities into mobile learning. Train-Ease is partnering with webSolve to host a free live forum to discuss mLearning and how this growing trend has the potential to promote your learning & performance solutions.

October 2008 Disaster Recovery - Does your team have the tools?

Train-Ease sponsored the 2008 Business Survival and Recovery Conference hosted by Contingency Planners of Ohio (CPO). The two-day event included various seminars on contingency planning to educate and improve the preparedness and response to disasters and emergencies that could affect your business, customers, and communities.

For many, this conference came at a very ironic time. With the effects of Ike’s wind and rainstorm, businesses were put to the test experiencing power loss, internet and telephone outages, and a breakdown of communication lines amongst employees. Did you have a Disaster Recovery procedure in place? Were employees knowledgeable of the steps to take in such a situation?

Sponsoring this conference allowed us to share our insight on business survival training. Train-Ease partnered with Nationwide’s Continuity Management team to create a disaster recovery training eLearning courseware, providing useful information and typical situations that employees could face. Showcasing this course at the event opened many eyes to the need for not only a solid disaster plan, but also training so that each employee is properly informed.

You never know when a disaster could occur; would your team have the necessary tools?

New eLearning Course to Launch!

Train-Ease, Inc. teams up with Faith & American Politics to launch its first eLearning course, Liberty and Justice for All. The Faith & American Politics team has designed a classroom-based training program for small groups and facilitators around the country. Although hundreds of learners and facilitators have been educated to help explore the intersection of religion and American politics, the number of facilitators who need training across the country is growing. With depleting time and funds for travel costs to support and lead this program, the F & AP team determined that the classroom approach will no longer be a viable delivery method to train thousands of facilitators and reached out to the Train-Ease team for a more practical solution. Our Train-Ease professionals collaborated with Faith & American Politics to design a facilitator training program containing eLearning, virtual meetings, video segments, etc. With the upcoming launch of this online Facilitator Training program, the team expects that facilitators will have increased knowledge and skills related to the practicing civility, awareness of their own political and faith journeys and methods for helping others engage in respectful dialogue. The Faith & American Politics team will no longer have the time commitments and travel costs related to delivering the facilitator program. In addition, the interest and accessibility of the facilitator training program will increase as a direct result of the flexible online format. And most importantly, the program will help increase the level of civility present in conversations the learners have related to faith and politics.
