The Ultimate V-Learning™
 
The Ultimate V-Learning™ Professional Courseware generally replaces the traditional printed textbook. It features an interactive, immersive learning experience that simulates a realistic corporate executive internship. The courseware includes a wide range of assignments including readings, videos, podcasts, professional career resources and tools.

A self-assessment program is integrated throughout the corporate experience, helping students prepare for the classroom teaching, mentoring and coaching by their professor.

The built-in Dashboard allows professors, Lecturers and Tutors to track student participation, progress and performance in real time and provides solid data for easy and accurate grading.

Professor/Tutors Resources: to assist with lectures, class discussions and testing, professors, Lecturers and Tutors are provided direct links to dozens of video scenes, assignments and assessment questions taken right from the students’ corporate experience.

Professors, Lecturers and Tutors are also provided easy-to-edit syllabi, schedule templates and a Day-by-Day Guide they can modify to suit personal teaching styles.

Students and Professionals can now participate in an immersive 3D learning environment instead of, or in addition to, using the traditional textbook.

Now, undergraduates can experience advanced 3D simulations as they immerse themselves within a virtual company, interact with avatar colleagues, and learn by participating in dynamic real ‘business world’ scenarios.

 

Vertical Learning courses are developed with uncompromising andragogy in mind – teaching the way adult learners learn best, including the use of animated problem-based learning objects and case study like scenarios all within the context of relevant and engaging story lines.
