- the features

It's vital to understand that Webucate is different from other systems in that it is 'inbox-driven'.  Webucate takes as its starting point the assumption that users will be busy people and scattered geographically.  Experience has shown that such learners do NOT log into web sites or bulletin boards to see what has been going on with their course while they have been busy earning a living.  And they find the group email, or ecommunity, absolutely vital to keeping on track.  That's why the heart of Webucate is the inbox-driven ecommunity learning.

Webucate allows course administrators to set up, manage and control a virtual training programme.  It is ideal for students who are scattered geographically but who need to be kept motivated (for instance a national salesforce).  It is also useful for students who may be close together geographically but meet only occasionally (for example a part time, one evening a week class in a local college).

It is ideally suited to programmes where at least some occasional form of face-to-face contact is provided, although it can be used for controlling pure distance learning courses.

If you would like to download a powerpoint show which can be used to present Webucate to colleagues, right click here then save it to your hard disk.
