E-Learning Basics

Overview

A Simple Explanation

Done right, e-learning is like living – intuitive, interesting, fulfilling.

A lot of online education is a simple translation of in-class or textbook curricula.

But the most effective e-learning is what they now call “curated” – built by hand for the task at hand.

At CECNA, we work to make our courses interactive, intuitive and enjoyable, with frequent quizzes that have been shown to increase retention and hold interest.
