12 More Reasons Why deGRANDSON's e-Learning System Works

 e-Learning KeyboardThe reality behind the myths about e-Learning [2 of 2]

As we stated in our first article on this subject, much has changed in recent years with e-learning courses. However, the myths about e-learning persist.

In this article, we will examine 12 e-learning features that counter them.

What to Expect from an Online Course

Before proceeding to our list of reasons why our e-learning system works, we need to state some important assumptions that are true for all of our online ISO Auditor Training Courses.

These are:

  1. That e-learning courses are well designed, developed and delivered having regard to the needs of adult learners.
  2. Courses are designed for delivery over a wide variety of operating systems and computing devices.
  3. Courses are delivered via a modern learning management system (LMS) keeping detailed records of the learners’ progress and results, and also capable of delivering instruction over a wide variety of operating systems and computing devices.

deGRANDSON Global's e-Learning System Features and Their Benefits


e-Learning Feature

Benefits to Students

13 Courses published in both SWF and HTML formats
  • During a Lesson you can switch from one device to another. 

Say, you start a Lesson on your PC at work.  You can continue the Lesson, from where you stopped, on a tablet device on the bus or train home and then finish it on your Notebook after dinner. 

Much of that flexibility would be lost, especially for older  devices, if we published in html5 alone.

14 30 plus Lessons per Course
  • Having compact lesson sizes (typically, 15 to 30 min), minimize download size for speedier service even if you have poor broadband speeds.
15 Pay through PayPal
  • All financial transactions through PayPal – credit and debit cards as well as PayPal accounts – for total security.  Only the PayPal service knows your financial details.
16 Experiential learning
  • Adults learn best by experiencing and understanding the significance of what they are learning.  This is the approach we use for all of our Courses.
17 Multi-layered approach
  • You build up your knowledge and skill progressively, layer upon layer, as you go through the Course. For you, a more rewarding experience for the effort you put in.
18 Plenty of practical exercises
  • With many scenarios and opportunities to generate findings and professionally write non-conformance/ non-compliance, you get practical experience in the application of the skills and knowledge you have acquired.
19 Connected to Facebook and LinkedIn
  • See what others have had to say about our courses on our social media sites.
20 Courses delivered through established LMS service
  • We use an award-winning LMS service to deliver our courses for uninterrupted availability worldwide.
21 e-Learning is now mature
  • Having learned of the challenges that early students of our e-learning courses have encountered have allowed us to refine our structure and content to a much higher professional standard.
