Microlearning Courses

Our 3-5 minute online microlearning courses satisfy 'just-in-time' or 'on-the-go' training needs This technique has been shown to improve overall retention.

'Self-Driven' Learning

Giving students the control over each interactive, narrated presentation allows them to explore the subject and helps increase their interest and retention.

Flexible Learning

Courses can be accessed 24 hours a day via any mobile device, PC or web browser. Flexible learning provides the best solution for all learners.

Hydraulic Simulations and Experiments

Allowing students to experiment with real product simulations provides by far the most effective way for them to gain a full understanding of how components work.

Serious Games

Including educational games within the courses has been shown to significantly increase engagement and retention.

Additional Information Links

Links to additional relevant information are provided to encourage the more able students to extend their skills.

Instant Testing

Interactive quiz modules give quick feedback on students' progress and are used for practice, qualifications or to reinforce what has been learned.
