Educational technology

Helping people learn in ways that are easier, faster, surer, or less expensive can be traced back to the emergence of very early tools, such as paintings on cave walls. Various types of abacus have been used. Writing slates and blackboards have been used for at least a millennium. From their introduction, books and pamphlets have held a prominent role in education. From the early twentieth century, duplicating machines such as the mimeograph and Gestetner stencil devices were used to produce short copy runs (typically 10–50 copies) for classroom or home use. The use of media for instructional purposes is generally traced back to the first decade of the 20th century with the introduction of educational films (1900s) and Sidney Pressey's mechanical teaching machines (1920s). The first all multiple choice, large scale assessment was the Army Alpha, used to assess the intelligence and more specifically the aptitudes of World War I military recruits. Further large-scale use of technologies was employed in training soldiers during and after WWII using films and other mediated materials, such as overhead projectors. The concept of hypertext is traced to description of memex by Vannevar Bush in 1945.

On-line courses for personnel distance education

Distance personnel training based on modern information technologies is one of the effective methods to reduce the training costs, to increase the audience and to improve the effectiveness of the staff training in general.

However, the introduction of the distance learning in the company is a complex process with many phases, and like any project, it requires time, investment and experienced management. This process usually includes the purchase and installation of a system of distance learning – Learning management system (LMS), its configuration and adding the training content.

Within the system of corporate distance learning there are various instruments of the personnel development: testing, webinars, video conferencing, chat rooms, forums, knowledge portals and, of course, electronic distance learning courses. They usually serve as the main content of the distance learning systems and are of the greatest interest both for users and for the company itself. Courses can be developed for different learning platforms (including iOS, Android), using various authoring tools (Adobe Flash, Articulate Storyline, Captivate, CourseLab), using standards of SCORM (AIICC, TINCAN, etc.).

E-course "Underwriting of the loan applications of the physical persons”

The Customer provided us with a text version of the "Methods of the clients underwriting", including general provisions for the procedure as well as tabular, schematic information, formulas and documents screenshots. Our experts carried out the methodological processing of the received material, developed a course script and interactive exercises, created characters, thematic dialogues and the unified design for the course.

Uniqueness of the course and its content

We made the course script in the form of a game detective story. The main character is a private detective from the agency called "Cerberus". Learning of the basics and nuances of the underwriting process takes place within the exciting detective investigation. The trainee with the help of a detective has to check the reliability of the potential borrower to eliminate the fraud. In the course of the investigation, the learner together with the character has to learn the peculiarities of filling the base documents for the loan by the customer, the formula for calculating the key indicators of solvency and creditworthiness of the potential borrower and other professional issues. We have built the course logic and a detailed storyline that allow the trainee easily handle a large number of sample documents and make a fascinating interactive exercises.

Smart Education 

The Smart Education term (or "smart learning") appeared in the media in the articles related to e-learning even before the term "electronic learning" entered the lexicon of companies and educational institutions. 

After the information technologies’ initial "pen test" in education, the potential of e-learning development became apparent. A number of experts and practitioners were quick to announce the coming revolution in education, linking it to "related" digital revolution, the “Internet of things”, cloud computing, ubiquitous broadband Internet access and other trends. 

We will not consider the general content of Smart Education here but limit ourselves to the practical issues: in what way the principles of "smart education" can work in the companies nowadays.

Facts About E-Learning
E-Learning has become a completely new way for students to take and even continue their education. But what is e-learning? Where did it come from? Where is it going in our ever changing technological world?Here, learn some interesting facts about e-learning.
Introduction E-learning.
You may have heard the term thrown around while surfing on the Internet or by a co-worker who was or is thinking about going back to school to complete a degree or to receive a secondary degree. You may have even heard or seen some universities or colleges that now offer some type of e-learning for their students.
But what is e-learning? How did e-learning begin? Who uses e-learning? Why has it made such an impact? Discover some facts about e-learning and how it relates to that of distance learning.
Facts About E-Learning
So what is e-learning? E-learning is essentially a way in which students and teachers are able to come together via technology. It stands for electronic learning and one might think that this is a new concept that has only emerged during our continued use and growth with that of the World Wide Web.
However, e-learning is not the first type of distance learning that has been around.
How did e-learning begin?
E-learning is itself a type of distance learning. Distance learning is the ability for students to receive education without needing to be within a school's classrooms, by use of receiving mail, CDs, DVDs, tapes, and recording in order to learn the chosen subject. Language software, such as the Rosetta Stone, could be considered a type of distance learning, as users are being taught a subject without the need to be enrolled or attending that of a traditional classroom.Facts About E-Learning
Distance learning has been around since the 19th century, when a school master in England began to teach short hand to those around the city. Instead of convening in a classroom, he went around to each interested party's homes and taught there. In a time when those with disabilities or handicaps, women, or the poor were unable to attend school, these types of lesson helped them gain skills they would need. This is the start of what would lead to correspondence courses.
Fast forward to the time when radio and TV were just beginning to fascinate the public. Realizing that these mediums had potential, the 1950s and 60s saw these means used for educational purposes, first with Iowa State introducing the first ever educational TV program in 1950, then by Philadelphia's WFIL-TV in 1951, followed by PBS in 1964. At this same time, Stanford University psychology professors were looking in to the concept of teaching elementary children math and reading through the use of computers.*
