Distance Learning contd'


  • Currently, HCG is working with project partners to develop and evaluate two new distance learning programs related to HIV prevention. These programs will consist of print-based, self-study modules complemented by live, interactive satellite conferences broadcast nationally. The satellite conferences will be video-taped and repackaged as a CD as well as in tape for use in a VCR. The modules will be made available to community-based HIV prevention personnel for use in ongoing training and capacity building within their agencies.

  • Recently, HCG has entered into negotiations with Media 1st to utilize this firm's award winning interactive e-learning platform Instruct for public health related training and education programs. This unique platform offers the benefits of having desktop access to training programs delivered via video streaming coupled with slide presentations and interactive question and answer segments. The administrative function allows participants to print out important slides and tracks the trainee's progress through series of courses. Once a course is successfully completed, the appropriate continuing education or other certificate can bedownloaded and printed by the trainee.
