We are starting an online learning academy we call TOLA. TOLA contains a catalog of courses on a myriad of different topics created and delivered by many of our friends who are experts in their respective fields. Each program will be independent of the others and contain four webinars delivered weekly and an associated eLearning program built on our proprietary 4Door™ eLearning Approach. Folks can sign up and take a course, but if they miss any of the webinars, each session will be recorded and posted on the eLearning site. During the live run of a program, participants will have access to the instructor. After the live run, participants will have perpetual access to the eLearning materials. And, the best part is new participants can sign up and take the course asynchronously after the webinar series is complete (with access to the webinar videos).
Ultimately, we plan to have dozens of course offerings from experts from all around the world. But, initially, we will start with five. They will launch in Mid-September/October. We will add more each month after that. Registration and specific course details will appear on this blog mid-July.
Three topics for the first offering in September/October are:
