CYBER WORKBOOKS is a web-based curriculum development platform to meet your training needs. The platform enables content developers to roll out new courses faster; validate the effectiveness of their curriculum, and ensure that learning outcomes are met.
The platform consists of authoring software to create modules, a user website to access the modules, and an administrative site for customizing modules and generating reports. A module can include a variety of different types of questions, resource links, graphics, audio and video.
Users will be given instant feedback on their performance, deficiencies and strengths. The modules are designed to be self-contained and are interactive, appealing to the different ways in which people learn.
CYBER WORKBOOKS targets skills with different levels of difficulty, such as:
New skills can be identified and tested. Each skill has a wizard to help developers create effective questions.
Reading comprehension helps the user understand facts and basic principles or rules. Reading comprehension is defined as the ability to read, understand, and distinguish important points, rules, or principles and the related facts, and identify any unresolved issues that are raised in a lesson or reading.
Critical thinking probes the meaning of things, the conclusions reached, and the inferences to be drawn. Users can learn, reinforce, and question the nuances and common misconceptions in applying the principles. Critical thinking is defined broadly to describe reasoning in an open-ended manner, probing and peeling away layers of analysis to reveal an unlimited number of solutions, theories and rationales.
Applied reasoning takes the user one step beyond critical thinking to apply the principles and inferences learned to a new problem, fact pattern or case study. This skill focuses on the practical application of basic principles or rules.
Creative problem solving takes the user through a process of learning to analyze and solve problems. This skill requires the user to determine what facts are known and unknown, and what issues need to be identified and fully developed. The user must then identify and evaluate solutions to the issues raised.
A critical feature of CYBER WORKBOOKS is the built-in evaluation and assessment feature. The author has the ability to assess the effectiveness of the questions.
There are several different types of questions that can be created: 1) multiple choice; 2) matching parts with functionality; 3) true/false; and 4) short answer. Responses will be timed, recorded, graded and feedback provided.
