Online learning is individualized education through the internet. You take courses at your own pace–and at the times most convenient to you. Courses are accessible 24 hours a day. You can start and stop when you need to; you do not need to complete a course in a single session.
New courses available 11/9/2012!
There are hundreds of courses available and more added every month. Here is a small sample:
More than 300 of the courses are accredited by national and state organizations. Courses in the library are search-able by accreditation status, so you can easily find courses that meet your continuing education requirements.
The cost of courses varies, but many are available for around $10. AAIDD members enjoy a 10% discount on all courses. Members can call 1-800-424-3688 ext. 203 to get the online code to receive the discount.
Essential Learning offers e-learning solutions for agencies with Elevate, a comprehensive online training and management system with advanced reporting and monitoring capabilities for tracking course completion and compliance with licensing mandates. Elevate also provides on-demand access to all AAIDD and EL courses for your entire staff, as well as the ability to customize courses from the EL library, add new courses of your own, and develop new courses with the assistance of EL staff. These services are available to organizations for a monthly fee, based on the number of employees who will be using the system. You can schedule a demo of Elevate by completing an online form, emailing info@EssentialLearning.com, or calling 1-800-729-9198 x296.
