OnLine Training CEO, Terrence
R. Redding, Ph.D., presents "A Comparative Analysis of Insurance
OnLine SDL with Traditional Classroom Learning" at the 14th
International Symposium on Self-Directed Learning, Boynton Beach,
- This research paper provides
a comparative analysis of the cognitive learning outcomes of
three traditional insurance pre-licensing courses to the same
course delivered online. The three traditional courses produced
end of course grade point averages of 71%, 80%, and 81%. The
online course, evaluated under exactly the same conditions, produced
a grade point average of 92.37%. Additionally, the online course
demonstrated greater internal consistency, and higher cognitive
learning outcomes, in each of the three areas measured: health,
life, and annuities. The online pre-licensing course is offered
by Florida Community Colleges as a non-credit distance education
course. It fully satisfies the 40 hour in the classroom pre-licensing
course requirement. Students completing this course are certified
to take the Florida 2-15 examination. This year the course will
be available in all parts of the state through Florida State
Community Colleges. A subset of the report is available as a
PDF download by clicking here.

- OLT Property and Casualty
Cram Course - beta - released, June
- OnLine Training, Inc. announced
today that it is releasing the beta version of its new Property
and Casualty Cram Course. The P&C course covers the material
associated with both the 200 hour General Lines Insurance Examination,
and the material associated with the 100 hour Customer Representative
Examination. Each online course costs OLT between $10,000 and
$20,000 to write and place online. The industry standard is $200
per screen to place content online. At OLT we do it for less
than $20 per screen - but it is still expensive. Our cram courses
can have more then 4,000 interactive screens.
- State insurance examinations
are designed to provide a 70% pass rate. However, the pass rate
for Property and Casualty examinations appears to be much lower.
Using the method devised by OLT - based on the behavioral sciences,
our cognitive learning model (the Redding Method) produces a
pass rate of 97% in the Life, Health and Annuities area. We expect
similar results in P&C - though it will take time to fine
tune the structure of the course.
- Normally, we would use internal
beta testers to fine tune a course. That is how we developed
the various state level Life, Health, and Annuities cram courses.
However, working with actual students will permit us to match
the course to a more viable test population - the public. For
more information about the Property and Casualty Cram Course
please click here.
- OLT Reseller Program Launched

through OnLine Training.
- OnLine Training in conjunction
with H&H Publishing offer college preparation courses online
-- Florida Community College students have new choices for overcoming
academic weaknesses. The options are described in House Bill
4259, passed May
1, 1998, with unanimous approval
from both chambers of the Florida Legislature.
- Previously, new students to
the community college system were required to take remedial courses
when their placement test scores indicated areas of academic
weakness. Now those students will be given a list of options
to consider in overcoming those weaknesses. The new legislation
directs Florida community colleges to notify students of other
possibilities besides their own campus programs, including those
offered by private-sector for profit companies. Students who
choose options outside the community college are still assured
the right to enroll in other college-level courses under the
same conditions as those who sign up for remedial classes.
- By giving students an informed
right to choose other methods of remediation, the State Legislature
places the community colleges in competition with other instructional
providers. Students can weigh the costs, effectiveness of instruction,
time/effort required, and all other factors when making a choice
that will have major, long-range effects on their academic ambitions.

preparation courses please click here.

Access to Education: Global
Learn Day, by Terrence R. Redding, Ph.D.
- An article accepted by On the
Horizon, an online Technology journal sponsored by Microsoft
and Jose-Bass with a circulation of 140,000. The article will
be featured in the September edition. You can find On the Horizon
- Abstract: No learning environment is ideal for
all potential participants. Some individuals will find they are
at a distinct disadvantage in one environment, while in another
their disadvantages may disappear. Access for some may be restricted
to distance education via the internet. Online education has
been viewed by many as second best as noted by John Hibbs, Benjamin
Franklin Institute of Global Education, in his May 1998 presentation
to the Houston Rotary, Houston, Texas. It seems obvious, the
instructor and the student seem to be isolated, separate from
one another. Face to face communications are not possible.

- Guest Lecture in New Zealand
- Hi! Greetings from Auckland,
NZ where Andi and I are staying with good
- friends, Rod and Jan Jefferies.
Rod is a senior lecturer in property
- valuation at the University
of Auckland. If you've seen any news on
- Auckland you may be aware that
the inner city is dark due to the failure
- of all the major power lines
supplying electricity to the CBD. I was
- scheduled to participate in
a seminar this Wed., but it now appears that
- if the seminar occurs at all
it will be on Mar. 19. I will deliver a 45
- minute overview on US real estate
property markets for 1998-99 to a
- group of consultants and other
real estate business people associated
- with Ernst and Young's New Zealand
- On Mar. 20 I will present a
two hour tutorial to New Zealand property
- appraisers on forecasting methodologies,
and later that day a two hour
- lecture to University of Auckland
real estate students on cash flow
- analysis for income producing
- Until then Andi and I will play
tourist. We will tour part of the
- northern part of New Zealand
near Auckland, then south to Lake Taupo and
- Rotorua, then continue site
seeing south to Palmerston North which is
- located at the southern tip
of the north island of New Zealand. There
- we will spend 4 days visiting
another colleague at Massey University.
- I will do my presentations upon
our return to Auckland. On Mar. 21 we
- depart for Sydney, Australia
where we will visit colleagues at
- University of Western Sydney
for two weeks before beginning our return
- to the states.
- That's the itinerary thus far.
Will keep in touch along the way.
- Countdown To Global
Learn Day II, October
- This is the most exciting and
informative conference of its kind on the planet today. Last
year OLT participated in the first Global Learn Day. It forever
changed our view of conferencing. From our new corporate offices
in West Palm Beach, Florida we were able to learn about and then
participate in Global Learn Day, all in less time than it would
have taken to travel to the nearest conference site. During one
brief day we were able to listen to and interact with others
involved in the exciting new technology associated with education
and training delivered over the internet. We were honored to
make a brief presentation, summarizing our impressions of this
first of a kind event.
- Using the technology of streaming
audio, one way video, and Java Chat we met and spoke with literally
hundreds of individuals located all over the world who both presented
and participated in the inaugural event. We gained an appreciation
for the common problems each of us share as we seek to deliver
education content via the internet. What could not have been
accomplished in six months of travel and scheduling was accomplished
in under 24 hours as we sailed aboard the Franklin Institutes
Global Learn Day vessel.
- I adamantly endorse this enterprise
and encourage you to consider participating this year.
- The Benjamin Franklin Institute
of Global Education is proud to announce plans for Global
Learn Day II
- -- a FREE on-line Worldwide
Distance Learning Celebration that will be held on all five continents
on Columbus Day Weekend, 1998.
- After completing their maiden
voyage on Columbus Day, 1997, They are anticipating a blockbuster
event this year, show casing the latest technology and addressing
the broad questions confronting the changing world of education.

- Building on our Inaugural "Voyage",
GLD II is a: Conference where the globe's leaders
- in distance education make interactive
presentations with each other and which can be
- accessed with real time audio
and video streaming; it is an Exhibition of over 40,000
- collegiate courses available
over the Internet from hundreds of colleges worldwide as
- well as an exhibition of extraordinary
conferencing, training, tools and software
- capabilities; it is an Expedition
that begins in Guam, where the planet begins the new
- day, and travels on a "voyage"
to every continent where, at 18 foreign Ports,
- interactive real time conference
and presentations are made.
- WHAT MAKES THIS DIFFERENT
THAN THE INAUGURAL VOYAGE?
- Last year was a small, experimental
exhibition and conference whereas this year the
- "ship" will hold thousands
of passengers and carry a huge cargo of new ideas, new
- tools and new information in
a format where tens, perhaps hundreds, of thousands can
- The "voyage" itself
will be similar in that the Franklin Ship will launch from Guam
- travel westward through the
South Pacific, to Hub Ports in New Zealand, Japan,
- China, India, The Emirates,
South Africa, Egypt, Russia, United Kingdom, Brazil,
- Mexico, Canada, New York, Oklahoma,
Texas, California and Hawaii where the
- closing ceremonies will be held.
- WHAT ELSE IS DIFFERENT
- Several of the Hub Ports will
hold REGIONAL LEARN DAYS ranging from four to
- twelve hours in length, some
in their local languages as well as in English. Viewers
- from any part of the world can
choose to visit these REGIONAL EVENTS, more of
- which will be detailed in the
- WHAT ELSE IS DIFFERENT
- There will be five Explorer
Panels which will hold, independently of the Voyage and
- independently of the Regionals,
and each other, each one of these Panels to last for
- approximately eight hours, each
one lead by a distinguished leader of his field.
- WHAT ARE THESE EXPLORER PANELS
- PANEL ONE - English as a Foreign
