CourseWorks

CourseWorks® offers an easy to navigate user interface with enhanced features, and an extremely reliable database. Over 100 interactive courses are now available in interactive CD-ROM format, covering four major product areas... general safety, regulatory compliance, laboratory safety and OSHA's HAZWOPER regulation.

What Is CourseWorks?

CourseWorks is an easy-to-use suite of programs, including a complete Learning Management System (LMS), that allows you to:

  • Create and deliver CD-ROM training courses
  • Customize your training environment
  • Track the progress of employees as they learn

CourseWorks allows students to learn:

  • Wherever there's a PC
  • At any time
  • At their own pace

With the CourseWorks LMS, you can set up a computer-based training environment that can handle:

  • Student enrollment
  • Course scheduling
  • Student performance tracking
  • Certification
  • ...and much more.

An administrator can install CourseWorks in only a few minutes, and can configure the CourseWorks environment to meet any facility's needs.

The CourseWorks Application Suite

Setup

As it's name implies, Setup is the CourseWorks® installation and configuration tool. It's designed to make these potential chores a breeze, even for computer novices.

Setup permits a number of installation choices, ranging from CD-only play to full network installation.

The configuration options include:

  • Customized design of course pages
  • Clock display, for timed courses
  • An e-mail feature, allowing students to contact their training administrators
  • The ability to print student notes/comments
  • Instant display of test results to students
  • The automatic printing of personalized student certificates, upon successful course completion
TrackPro

TrackPro is the CourseWorks database-management tool. It allows administrators to:

  • Group courses into curricula
  • Schedule courses
  • Enroll students
  • Track course progress and test scores

TrackPro also includes a powerful reporting tool that permits administrators to view data on:

  • Courses
  • Students
  • Tests
  • Individual test questions

TrackPro includes a number of preformatted reports, and permits users to create their own customized reports.

Deliver

Students use Deliver to take CD-ROM courses. The easy-to-understand Deliver interface makes selecting a course...navigating from one part of a course to another...and taking quizzes or tests a simple matter of point-and-click.

Deliver also allows you to identify each student. As a result, you can track when employees take courses, and how well they perform.

Build

Build is a unique multimedia authoring tool designed specifically to create or modify training programs. It allows users to easily assemble or rearrange training modules (called "blocks") containing still graphics, audio and video, as well as quizzes related to each block's subject matter.

Using Build, you can also customize courses, replacing information in the original course with content specific to your organization's needs.

CourseWorks® also enables administrators to log and track all quiz and test information. The program will even write reports based upon student performance. See TrackPro for more details about these functions.

NOTE: Build is not included in the basic CourseWorks® Application Suite. It is an additional purchase.

If CourseWorks® sounds interesting to you contact your MARCOM distributor, or if you don't have a distributor contact MARCOM directly.
