Since ANSI established its Education and Training Services Department in 1995,
the majority of our full - and half-day courses have utilized the traditional,
classroom-based method of delivering education.
Live, instructor-led training is considered by all to be the most effective, as
it best facilitates real-time interaction, in-depth information sharing and
direct response to questions. Few educational opportunities are considered more
valuable than meeting and interfacing directly with an instructor, staff
support for various programs, and other students.
The Institute will continue to offer its courses during a limited number of
face-to-face, instructor-led programs around the country each year.
Courses and Fees
Web-based training is a way of delivering one of ANSI’s traditional “classroom”
courses via the Internet and a phone connection. These full-day, “online”
versions of ANSI’s traditional instructor-led programs are segmented into three
two-hour sessions with coffee and lunch breaks between the segments.
Participation is possible anywhere there is a telephone and a computer with
Internet access. Audio is delivered over the telephone (toll free) and the
slide show and relevant documents can be viewed simultaneously via a web
browser. Students save on travel time and expenses.
Each web-based training course will be facilitated by an ANSI instructor and
may include relevant ANSI staff members. Participants also have an opportunity
to ask questions during the session on the phone, or by typing in questions
through an online “chat” feature.
Courses and Fees
Just like web-based training, students participate in virtual workshops and
forums using the Internet and a telephone - no special software is required.
The only difference is that virtual workshops concentrate on a single or
focused set of topics. These web-based courses are usually short – often
only two hours each – and provide a forum for high-level discussions on
Many of the customized workshops are designed around the key questions
submitted by the participants prior to the session. Participants also have any
opportunity to ask additional questions during the session.
Each virtual workshop will be facilitated by an ANSI instructor and may include
relevant ANSI staff members. The workshops are limited to the first 15 people
who register to allow for optimum participant interaction. Participants also
have an opportunity to ask questions during the session on the phone, or by
typing in questions through an online “chat” feature.
|E-learning programs - www.StandardsLearn.org
is ANSI’s education portal for web-based e-learning programs.
The general definition of e-learning today has changed from “the use of the
Internet to deliver courses online” to “enabling, extending, and enhancing
learning through the use of technology, including but not limited to the
Internet and intranets.” In order to differentiate ANSI’s web-based offerings,
e-learning is defined as self-paced, asynchronous (not live) training programs.
