  3. 3. E-Learning vs Online Learning Understanding the definitions E-learning is a broad term used interchangeably in a wide variety of contexts. A simple definition is: • E-learning (electronic learning): Any technologically mediated learning, whether from a distance or in face to face classroom setting (computer assisted learning). It includes the delivery of content via Internet, audio- and videotape, satellite broadcast, interactive TV, CD-ROM, and more. Online learning: Any learning experience or environment that relies upon the Internet as the primary delivery mode of communication and presentation. As learning methods continue to grow exponentially, e-Learning is often being used synonymously with online learning. 3 © 2009 FDRP

  10. 10. FrontSUMMIT™ E-Learning Offerings Instructor ToolBox™ Combinations For enhanced value and adaptability to your teaching and hiring needs, the FrontSUMMIT™ ToolBox™ can be combined with other e-Learning courses and certification credentials. Consider these scenarios: Resort A has an average dining room staff of 15 that grows to 50+ during their busy season. In the off-season, the establishment provides training using the ToolBox™ solution. • When employees are hired during or after the standard training time, they can easily make up any missed sessions (or entire training) by using the online, interactive FrontSUMMIT™ course corresponding to the missed information. • Following training should an employee need more review of certain material, they can easily refresh or boost their skills using the same method mentioned above. • For new hire validation of skills, a Certification Exam can be added to the customer account. Prior to the interview, the prospect goes to the FrontSUMMIT™ e-Learning center, uses the provided login information, takes the ‘New Hire’ test, and upon completion simply emails or brings the Certificate of Completion or Certification to the hiring manager. The FrontSUMMIT™ ToolBox™ Never Stops Working For You! 10 © 2009 FDRP
