NEWS - UK set for online Wit (17.03.00)

.


The government's concept of a "University for Industry" has taken a giant leap forward with the launch of a new network of 68 learning centres and the incorporation of Wit.

Micheal Wills, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Learning and Technology said: "Ufi is harnessing ICT (Information and Communication Technology) to make learning more widely available and accessible than ever before, to both individuals and business". Ufi aims to provide UK citizens with straightforward access to online learning resources. Users of the learndirect centres can access Wit to acquire and develop skills in all major Windows applications.

Wit is a complete learning system which utilises multimedia technology with moving images and sound. It allows the user to receive training alongside the real application, rather than in a simulation, maximising both at the rate at which information is taken on board and the level of knowledge retention after training. Each Wit user receives an individually tailored course and the trainer is only ever a mouseclick away via the Internet. The user is able to evaluate his or her post-training knowledge and is given the opportunity to recap on any areas of doubt.
