Engaging, comprehensive content focuses on today's most relevant issues

Each program within Commonwealth Media's new and growing library of Web-based e-learning programs features the same impeccable standards of accuracy, painstaking attention to detail, an unparalleled commitment to the highest standards of educational research and expertise, and extensive consultation and collaboration with top international experts—as well as the same high degree of engaging and memorable dramatic impact—that you've come to expect from a Commonwealth Films' production…now with the added bonus of high-level interactivity, extensive content customization options, and the unparalleled training flexibility and enterprise-wide "reach" that Internet-based training offers.

Topic modules within our programs focus on today's most relevant issues, and effectively target the awareness-training messages to the specific employee audiences to which they are intended.

Highly customizable content to reflect your organization's specific policies, procedures & corporate culture

Extensive content customization options throughout our e-learning programs allow for seamless integration of your organization's own branded identity and specific policies, procedures, and in-house resources including a client-customized onscreen welcome/introductory message from your organization's Management; an onscreen content customization feature that can personalize any and every main screen of the program to personalize and "qualify" the core information content to create a "custom-fit" with your own specific policies and procedures; a customized "Quicklinks" menu of links to your own online resources; a built-in online employee "Helpline & Contact Info" feature integrated into the program that connects your people directly, including via a direct email link, directly back to the right in-house resources at your organization; a client-customized, electronically submitted Certificate of Completion at the program's end for valuable user tracking; and more.

Content customization shows your people that the training has been custom-tailored to the specific needs and policies of your organization. And with Commonwealth Media's Web-based e-learning programs, that customization is done in a seamless, holistically integrated way—not just "tacked-on" to a generic, "one-size-fits-all" kind of program—ensuring that your people receive the specific, highly personalized awareness-training messages exactly as you want them delivered.

The end result is that your people experience a highly personalized, highly customized training program, and will recognize that your organization very much wants each and every one of its people to truly understand what is being presented, and also that the organization's highly committed Management team is "on call" to further assist them personally.

Sample Table of Contents:

Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity: Planning, Testing, Readiness What Every Employee Needs To Know
  • Management's Welcome Section—An entirely client-customizable introductory/welcome message from your organization's Management greets your users prior to launching the main course.

  • Dramatized Narrative Introduction—A self-playing dramatized narrative storyline section captures user attention and brings to life the consequences of disaster recovery/business continuity non-compliance in an engaging, realistic, timely way. This particular scenario depicts what happens when a so-called "minor" disruption of operations escalates and is made worse by employee ill-preparedness and non-compliance with the organization's established policies and procedures.

  • Section 1: Main Teaching Section—This self-paced central teaching section of the program uses non-technical language to drive home the program's critical awareness-training points—always focusing on what individual employees can and should do to help the organization and themselves to be as aware and as prepared as possible.

  • Section 2: Corporate Helpline & Contact Info Section—This entirely client-customized section provides your people with easy, online access to your organization's internal contact resource information right at their fingertips. A pre-addressed e-mail link to the appropriate in-house resources at your organization-built right into the online program itself—can enable your employees to internally pursue specific questions, comments, or concerns immediately.

  • Section 3: Summary Review Section—This Web-accessible and printable Summary Review of the program's main teaching points promotes active retention of information, and can serve as an additional, valuable employee refresher or just-in-time resource later. Additional "More Details" pop-up text resources thought the program provide users with additional "drill-down" review and learning reinforcement opportunities, as well.

  • Section 4: Interactive Question & Answer Section—This self-paced, self-assessment section encourages critical thinking and applies and reinforces user knowledge acquired in the program in a positive, non-punitive manner, enabling users to explore the often gray or otherwise subjective areas of the particular issues at hand.

  • Section 5: Web-based Certificate of Completion of Training Section—This client-customizable user tracking feature at the conclusion of the program provides your organization's Management with valuable documentation and tracking of each participant's successful completion of the program and stated understanding of the information covered. Upon reaching the conclusion of the program, each user completes the client-customizable online Certificate of Completion form, accept (or reject) a straightforward, entirely client-customizable Certifying Statement of Completion of Training statement, then electronically submits that Certifying Statement document for Management's review and retention.
