Find out how CLS can provide you with the solutions you require.
A Higher Form of E-learning
Your products are not leveraging their full potential if the users are not properly and consistently trained. CLS can convert your existing courses or create new course materials and deliver them to an online Learning Management System (LMS)/Learning Content Management System (LCMS) platform. Flexible training delivery whether online or offline allows you to train and certify a diverse and geographically widespread student population.
Learning Management Systems utilize informative narrative, interactivity, animation, sound and video to keep the user engaged in the material.
- Surveys and testing
- Skills assessments
- Reporting and dashboards
- Course, test, and survey development
- Role-based control
- Certificate generation
Classroom and Field Training
CLS will work with your subject matter experts and training staff to perform a training task analysis, prepare a plan of instruction, create student guides, media presentations, and certification standards, conduct testing, etc.
Our experienced staff has traveled to remote locations across the world to conduct on-site training. We are particularly experienced with training military personnel and creating materials that adhere to Mil-Spec standards. If you prefer to keep instructor-led training in-house, we can prepare the materials and train and certify your instructors.
Key Values of Computer Based Training
The goal of any training is to impart skills and knowledge in a way that leads to high comprehension and steep retention. Our design for computer-based training curricula is based on a thorough understanding of the principles of cutting-edge learning. In particular, eight key points help us design and implement computer-based training programs that are effective, enjoyable, and productive.
Students are not always eager to hear a given message or learn a particular task. Therefore, the training must be tied to real-world, practical applications.
Some older students have definite ideas, preconceptions, and prejudices. Analyzing the audience in advance and getting feedback during training program development is crucial.
Students often have experiences that relate to the topic. Designing a program that helps people relate their own experience with the training will maximize comprehension and retention, and facilitate acceptance of new skills.
Students want to use what they learn as quickly as possible, in a way that is relevant to them. Training should be designed to accommodate task-specific and full-length training.
No student can be forced to read, watch, or listen. Training must have high relevance and appeal. Appeal may reside in attractive screen designs, relevant use of humor, or interesting examples, but it must be built into the training from the outset.
Some students may be anxious in a training environment, particularly when they are being evaluated or when they feel a superior may monitor their performance. The fact that training will be at the user's "home" location, on their system, will encourage them to use the program more frequently and at their discretion.
Mature students communicate more easily and effectively with their peers. The tone of computer-based training must be neither condescending nor uninformed.
All students want to know how they're doing, and they prefer to get feedback as quickly as possible after completing a task. Training should include checklists and opportunities for the user to apply what he or she has learned quickly, perhaps including computer simulations.
