IA’s flexible pricing plan - based on standard and customized packages - enables organizations to add features and services depending on their strategic objectives and budget.
San Francisco (PRWEB) January 9, 2008
The premiere national training and development trade publication, T&D magazine, is featuring Interaction Associates' innovative web-based learning platform - Total Access - in a round-up article on advanced approaches to learning and development.
The article, headlined See How They Learn, in the January 2007 issue of T&D magazine, focuses on how Total Access by Interaction Associates™ addresses a central question most companies grapple with when planning training: "What happens after the workshop?"
"Eighty percent of learning happens on the job," says Michael Papanek, Director, Advanced Learning Innovations and leader of the Total Access development team. "People have tried to bring the real world into the workshop, but we need to bring workshops into the real world. That's what Total Access does," added Papanek.
Total Access is a blended learning and performance support system that enables skillful collaboration across an enterprise. The system bundles IA's innovative and proven collaboration tools, processes, learning aids, and consulting support with an online toolkit of more than 400 customizable learning objects focused on collaboration.
Organizations can customize their own Total Access platform to meet the collaboration and performance improvement challenges they face, according to Barry Rosen, IA's Director of Intellectual Property. "Total Access can help address a number of strategic objectives - from building teams, to developing leaders, to managing change, and more," Rosen says. "With this platform, leaders and managers engage large groups of stakeholders and problem-solvers by creating an online network of users who communicate with and coach one another, advancing the quality of thinking and collaboration."
Rosen notes another popular application: "For companies interested in being certified to deliver IA workshops, a Total Access option includes downloadable participant materials, workshop leader guides, demonstration videos, and learning aids," he adds. "IA’s flexible pricing plan - based on standard and customized packages - enables organizations to add features and services depending on their strategic objectives and budget."
"Instead of merely providing customers with proprietary content 'solutions,' IA incorporates in-person consulting and other tools to help ensure that clients acquire the strategic change in performance they are seeking," Papanek says. "We help them by providing that skill transfer capability."
T&D magazine is published by the American Society for Training and Development (ASTD). It is available online via subscription at ASTD.org.
