Online Interactive Management Training
California Department of Transportation
The California Department of Transportation (CalTrans) needed to develop project management training courses for management employees statewide. The training had to be comprehensive, covering all aspects of using the project management application, hold the interest of the target audience, and be accessible 24 hours a day. CalTrans chose InfoPros to create a comprehensive course comprised of multiple training modules.
InfoPros developed a web-based training (WBT) solution that includes multiple opportunities for interaction, such as “what if” scenarios, informal quizzes providing helpful hints, and pointers back to related content, audio voice-overs, and animated graphics. Interaction is an effective tool for reinforcing learning concepts while making the training more engaging.
The training is presented through a series of interesting articles, interviews, quizzes, and interactive exercises. Flash-based exercises provide students with an engaging experience that is not possible with traditional training videos or documentation. Recognizable themes and real-life scenarios help to draw in the learner and aid in problem solving.
This eLearning course uses proven instructional design principles to deliver a learning experience that meets the learning needs of senior management employees statewide.
The courses encompass the CalTrans project management methodology within an interactive learning environment providing employees with multiple opportunities to solidify their knowledge on key topics. For CalTrans, a cost-effective solution was an imperative and the web-based training solution enabled them to cut employee travel time and budgets, as well as instructor expense.
Each training solution is unique and addresses specific needs, requirements, and a target audience. InfoPros works with its clients to develop customized training solutions that are instructionally sound while meeting the clients’ core business objectives.
