E-Course Trial | Leveraging Lessons and Implementing Improvements

It’s no secret by now (we hope!) that Claims Class is launching e-courses in 2017 and, over the past couple of months, we have been running a trial of our first e-course, a Construction Claims Intermediate E-Course.

Running the trial was definitely a worthy exercise. We gained some great feedback from our students and learnt some valuable lessons ourselves, all of which have gone into improving the course and creating the final version. In this blog, we explore the trial process, share the key takeaways and showcase the final version of the e-course.

The Trial

The trial included 18 students from all over the world who agreed to complete the course within a given time-frame and provide feedback on each module as they progressed through the course. When the trial ended, we had gathered 108 feedback forms that gave us key insight into the following areas: (more…)

E-Course Pros and Cons | Are they a good study option for you?

In a recent blog we explained the concept of e-courses and what you can expect when you sign up for one. In this blog, we take an objective look at e-courses by examining their pros and cons to help you decide if learning via e-courses is for you.

The Pros

Convenience – in today’s busy world where we’re trying to fit what often feels like a hundred things into our day, the biggest advantage of taking an e-course is convenience. You don’t need to alter your weekly schedule to accommodate class attendance, rather, you fit study in to your existing schedule. For example, some people perform best in the morning (usually after a coffee!) whereas others could be night-owls and prefer to study into the late hours. You decide and you are in control which means you are more likely to learn efficiently and get the maximum benefit from the course. (more…)

How is an e-course delivered?

There are a variety of ways e-courses are delivered and plenty of tools to help course providers deliver the content in an engaging and interactive way. There are some common delivery methods though and those include: (more…)

Introducing E-Courses for Quality and Convenient Learning

Firstly, we would like to wish all our blog readers a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year. We realise this is more than a little delayed (we can’t believe it’s March already!) but that’s because we have been busy behind the scenes working on a new and improved version of Claims Class AND we’re excited to now be able to share some details of our plans with you!

In 2017, Claims Class will be venturing into the world of e-courses!

Why? Well…

Claims Class is a small and friendly training and education provider and over the past 5 years we have grown the Claims Class brand and delivered courses across the Middle East, South- Asia, the UK, South Africa and Ireland.

During this time, we have built a good reputation for our training and we now receive enquiries from people all over the world asking if we plan to present our training courses in their countries.

Whilst we would love to deliver our courses in more regions, costs and logistics mean that we need large numbers of attendees for the courses to be economically viable and, without good connections for marketing, this becomes a challenge.

Times have also changed. Whilst there is still great benefit in attending face-to-face training courses (and don’t’ worry, we’ll continue to run those), we realise that busy, time-constrained professionals want access to quality training at times and from locations that are convenient to them. We wanted to meet that need.

So, what can you expect from our e-courses?
