DETC Partners with MaxKnowledge
to Offer New Online Tutorials
The Distance Education and Training Council recently unveiled the DETC Online Training Center. Powered by MaxKnowledge, the DETC Online Training Center offers both DETC tutorials and MaxKnowledge’s Soft Skills tutorials at no charge.
The three DETC Tutorials (formerly DETC’s online courses) are the DETC Business Standards tutorial, the DETC Evaluator Training Tutorial, and the tutorial on Preparing for DETC Accreditation.
The DETC Online Training Center also offers a free online course on Developing a Successful Online Program sponsored by MaxKnowledge and McGraw-Hill Learning Solutions. Facilitated by Dr. Robert Roehrich, a seasoned career education executive, this course describes the phases of launching an online program and strategies for successful implementation.
“DETC has partnered with MaxKnowledge to help our member institutions improve their staff and institutional performance,” said DETC Executive Director Michael P. Lambert. “This partnership represents one more value-adding membership service provided by the DETC to its stakeholders. We are also delighted that MaxKnowledge shares our goal in enhancing educational quality and student outcomes through the power of teaching at a distance. This partnership represents one more reason why DETC is the leading accrediting association for the distance learning community.”
The 23 Soft Skills Tutorials offered by MaxKnowledge cover areas for Career Development, Communication Skills, Creativity and Innovation, Supervisory Skills, and Training Management. In addition, there are a variety of free resources, including self-paced tutorials, higher education lessons, live webinars and a social learning platform for knowledge sharing and collaboration.
“We are very excited to support DETC and distance learning institutions in their continuous improvement efforts,” said Dr. Amir Moghadam, CEO of MaxKnowledge. “We are honored to have the opportunity to help enhance student success at institutions that are constantly striving for the highest level of educational excellence.”
In addition to the free Soft Skills tutorials, MaxKnowledge also makes available more than 100 fee-based online training courses.
