Features of CEG eLearning:

Course content is broken down into Modules and Topics. Participants explore the content using a variety of interactive methods, including:

  • roll-overs which uncover more detailed information on particular terms
  • pop-ups which allow participants to explore diagrams, templates, and processes in more depth
  • an avatar, or animated mentor, who offers additional content that expands the topics on selected pages
  • knowledge checks that give participants a chance to review important points
  • practice exercises that present challenges and opportunities using a case study (Participants practice applying the content learned using real-world tools and techniques to solve the case study problems.)
  • graded quizzes identify topics participants have mastered and those they might need to study more
  • a graded final exam validates the knowledge gained and skills mastered for the time committed

In addition to individual interactivity, CEG also offers a learning community and social learning tools that allow participants to share with each other and gain a broader understanding from a variety of perspectives. Participants can take advantage of lively discussion boards and instructor-led chat sessions.
