OakTree is extremely proud to have received this award
Portland, OR (PRWEB) October 5, 2008
OakTree Digital was recognized during a ceremony and reception held as part of the 2008 Innovations in Learning Conference, held September 24-26 in San Jose, CA.
The three hour Alcohol Server Education (ASE) online course, created and developed by OakTree Digital, makes extensive use of Flash and embedded video demonstrating real-world scenarios to simulate how to identify under-aged patrons, inebriated patrons and procedures to follow to comply with the law. The training scenes were filmed at local Portland spots Kells and McCormick and Schmick's using local union actors. The embedded video scenes deliver a realistic training experience beyond flat text and images. The course uses a train car metaphor to guide the learner through the required curriculum by associating each of the seven subject units with a different scenic location in Oregon.
"OakTree is extremely proud to have received this award," said John Schmitt, President of OakTree Digital. "It validates the vision shown by the Oregon Restaurant Educational Foundation (OREF) in anticipating their target audiences' preference for learning on-line."
