I am new to blogging and currently taking a class called Technology for the Adult Learner.  I would love to hear from individual who are currently using technology for their organization or classroom.   What technologies are currently in use and how does your organization manage those technologies?  Any feedback you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Jerry: As we teach industrial skills to adults, and cant always do it in person with hands-on. We use customized computer based training (CBT). We found standards like SCORM and AICC cant handle the high degree of interaction and simulation required to simulate hands-on training remotely. So we use a LMS customized specifically for our training software that doesn't have the limitations the previous two standards mentioned do. This customer LMS also allows us to do more detailed analysis of student activities, times and procedural mistakes to delivery maximum hands-on quality training without risk normally associated with hands-on training like getting shocked, pinched fingers, etc. :>) To experience a sample of this type adult interactive simulation training download the demo http://www.industrial-ebooks.com/CBT_software/Bin95_TMCDemo.zip see one of the other demos at http://www.bin95.com/electrical_software_downloads.htm

 

Hope this helps. Don

Donald,

Thank you for your feedback!  The training sounds interesting and interactive for the student.  I am also sure they appreciate not being shocked and pinched for making an error.
