“The adventure of life is to learn. The purpose of life is to grow. The nature of life is to change. The challenge of life is to overcome. The essence of life is to care. The opportunity of life is to serve. The secret of life is to dare. The spice of life is to befriend. The beauty of life is to give.” – William Arthur Ward
As we enter the final month of 2013, MyCourseRoom would like to share a recent email that we got from one of our learners. It speaks to the value of learning and the mission we have to reach as many learners as possible.
In order to satisfy CPE hours as a certified public school educator in Texas, I am required to complete 150 hours every 6 years to maintain an “active status” for my certification. I found MyCourseRoom to be a fantastic resource!
I was not only able to work at my own pace and take the courses at no cost, the range of topics to choose from varied greatly and were pertinent to my certification. Teen Leadership, Child Growth & Development, Diversity Awareness, Conflict Resolution, Organizational Skills, Time Management and Balancing Work & Family (to name a few) were all courses I completed that were not only endorsed by TEA, but I have also been able to apply skills and ideas that were introduced in these courses in my job setting and at home.
I found MCR courses to be well organized, thorough, creative and user friendly with interactive discussion boards and assessments to ensure a better understanding of each course topic.
I would highly recommend MCR to educators and other professionals looking to satisfy course requirements for their particular profession. I noticed that MCR offers many courses that are applicable to an array of industries.
I am so pleased that I found MCR online, and I will continue to use it as a resource for continuing education in the future!
We are grateful for this learner and others who have written to us. Please share your experiences with us and with others at http://www.MyCourseRoom.com.
“The only thing worse than training employees and losing them is to not train them and keep them.” – Zig Ziglar
The following is a representation of how MyCourseRoom is helping a small family-owned business provide on-demand and consistent staff training.
Blake and Suzanne run a small, successful retail company. Their staff training challenges are that they have several different service areas: direct and online sales, front office, back office, shipping, restocking, customer service, and website operations. Most of these areas require specialized and ongoing training as new products and services become available.
After going to www.MyCourseRoom.com and seeing what services are available to small businesses, they found us to be a perfect fit for providing their training. They registered their business and customized the Basic plan to meet their current and projected needs for the next six months. They added their current staff as Premium Learners and set up their business course catalog. All this was done in less than 30 minutes.
Blake and Suzanne were excited to know that they could have their sales and customer service staff begin immediately by adding some of the leadership and relationship management courses from the free MyCourseRoom inventory to their private catalog. At the same time, they asked their section managers to begin using the online course editor to put their current business-specific training into online format.
Over the next few weeks, we will follow Blake and Suzanne to see how MyCourseRoom is meeting their needs.
We invite you to visit us at www.MyCourseRoom.com and see how our Business Premium services can help you.
