Through the generosity of the UB School of Management and DEVO, we can make Digital Access Learning available to nonprofits, as capacity is available. Digital Access Learning offers these benefits for your training programs for service recipients, staff and volunteers:
- 24-hour, 7-day access to training, by internet, CD or DVD.
- Better comprehension, because the learner can slow down or repeat parts of the presentation
- On-line "hand-outs" that the learner can print out
- Training that is more consistent class to class
- A reduction in hours spent by trainers.
This program is now in its fifth year. For more information and a 2009-2010 schedule, click here.
We make it easy for you, including coaching and presentation tips.
To learn more, you can view a 20-minute demonstration by Professor Natalie Simpson. First, click to view and print out the "hand-outs." Then, turn on your speakers and click to view the on-line demonstration. (You must have high-speed internet.)
After you watch the demonstration, if you would like to talk about using Digital Access Learning at your agency, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 887-2757.
