Getting Started

Q. Why eLearning?
A. Employers can no longer afford the cost of travel and housing to transport employees from remote offices to instructor-led classroom sessions for every training need.

Employees engaged in the fast pace of business where doing more with less is a must, simply cannot spare the large blocks of time that traditional instructor-led classroom sessions require.

With CyberLearning quality course content and real-time Internet presentation of courses, e-Learning users throughout the world gain the advantages of flexibility, convenience, cost-effectiveness and interactivity. In addition to scheduling flexibility that allows learners to do coursework anytime, anywhere, CyberLearning courses also are adaptable to the individual needs of the learner. For example, a custom learning path based on results from the individual's skills assessment testing, is created enabling learning to be solely focused on what has not yet been mastered. Providing a custom learning path prevents individuals from re-learning what has already been mastered and shortens the learning cycle.
