  3. 4. Your Company Logo & Color Scheme Your Professional Education Center is customized with your company’s logo and color scheme. Your brand has an immediate impact on your audience, whether you are selling content to clients or delivering training materials to employees. Next 3
  4. 5. Instructor Audio/Video The Streaming Video Mode mirrors the most popular form of traditional training – live seminars. The narrative window delivers content as audio/video or audio only. Our audio/video streaming technologies ensure top-quality delivery over a network or standard 56k dial-up connection. Additionally, the audio/video will automatically pause at the instructor’s direction, so students know exactly when to review case studies, examples, spreadsheets, additional videos or any other Web-capable study materials. Next 4
  5. 6. PowerPoint Overview The Slide window automatically updates itself as the instructor moves through the course. This tool allows the instructor to visually illustrate key points, incorporate screen captures and emphasize other key graphics. Next 5
  6. 7. Course Outline The course outline is clearly presented, allowing students to easily navigate the course. Students can click on any element in this window and jump directly to that section. Traditional video requires a manual scan to locate specific content. Our indexing feature, however, gives students direct access to the specific content they want to review. This window also highlights upcoming study checks and exams. Next 6
  7. 8. Email Author As with any instructor-led course, students may sometimes need additional information on a specific issue. The Email Author function allows students to ask detailed questions without taking up valuable class time. This function also gives instructors the opportunity to research issues and to provide the most informed answers. Next 7
  8. 9. Support Files The Support Files function allows instructors to incorporate any and all support materials for a course. The instructor can pause the audio/video at any time and direct students to review case studies, illustrations, interactive spreadsheets, Word documents, PDFs and additional supporting audio, video and animation files. Your courses can incorporate any Web-deliverable file. Next 8
  9. 10. Study Checks Unit Reviews & Randomized Final Exams The Professional Education Center allows instructors to create study checks, unit reviews and randomized final exams. Exams can be inserted into the presentation at any point, allowing the instructor to quiz actively on specific topics or materials. Study checks and unit reviews provide real-time feedback, telling students whether their answer was right or wrong, and explaining why. Final exams can feature randomized questions and require students to submit a completed test for instant grading. Instructors can also design courses without quizzing components. Next 9
