FOR RELEASE: Immediate, Wednesday, July 14, 2004

A week-long workshop at Hudson Valley Community College beginning August 2 will introduce the concept of e-learning to business professionals, non-profit leaders, entrepreneurs and educators.

While McDonalds and other large corporations have used e-learning for several years to train their employees, the groundbreaking concept is relatively new to small business.

Using an online course management system, instructor Susan Gallagher will outline how to administer an e-learning program, design training modules and assess employee/student performance. The course is appropriate for business owners, human resource professionals or anyone interested in using the Internet to offer training.

Gallagher is the coordinator of distance learning at Hudson Valley Community College.

The course will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. from August 2 through August 6 in the Bulmer Telecommunications Center on the Hudson Valley campus.

Enrollment is limited. To register for the workshop, call Lisa Condon at 629-4827.
