Closing the IT Training GapWe've seen over the years that we train far more people than we test, Erdle says.While there's tremendous effort to train on tests like A+ and Network+, students don't always follow through and actually take the exam, and we are trying to address some of the reasons that's happening,he says.
Erdle says sometimes this lack of follow-through is cultural, or because of logistical challenges some students can't physically get to a testing location, he says but is most often a result of an intense fear of failure or lack of confidence in the ability to learn and retain the information.We're trying to overcome these challenges by tapping into brain science and figuring out how best to prepare students to both sit a challenging exam and pass, and also how to have confidence that those skills and knowledge will stay with them as they move into new IT jobs, Erdle says.
The Science of GamesMost of the scientific research are used to develop CertMaster CompTIA is the same as that used by the gaming industry to committed players and switched in the course of the game to hold and promotes a sense of progression, risk, performance and curiosity. These pings dopamine levels, and it feels good to have success and the positive feedback loop is created, so it's easier to retain information and skills. CertMaster is to encourage them to learn from mistakes and to reduce the risk that they will leave the course, including immediate feedback to older students, says Erdle.
Erdle says technology, customize personalized adaptive learning and data analysis CertMaster training on the individual strengths, weaknesses and level of understanding and retention.In traditional learning, repetition is the way material is taught. But in adult situations, every adult brings a different level of knowledge on various topics, and it is difficult to know what is relevant to all he says. CertMaster can quickly find and refer each student know what not on the material that they already know, hammering, he says.
Data analysis can also predict when students have reached their maximum capacity of learning and the need for a break.CompTIA CertMaster is from June 4, 2014, and costs $ 139.00 per course, says Erdle. Cheap prices are for academic institutions available, and rates of channel partners is also available separately, says. CertMaster can be accessed through any web browser, and in both iOS and Android mobile devices.
