LOMA Launches Innovative Delivery Method for Courses
ATLANTA - February 2, 2010 - As part of its
comprehensive plan to enhance its designation program courses, LOMA
recently introduced an exciting new way to offer its award-winning,
industry-specific content to learners. This new delivery method,
the LOMA Course Portal, is an online, blended resource through
which learners access everything they need to study and prepare for
the course examination.
The Course Portal concept combines LOMA's award-winning
financial services industry content with engaging, media-rich
features and enhanced study features to help ensure that a
learner's study time is as efficient and effective as
possible. While learners will benefit from an enhanced study
experience, companies will also benefit from reduced administration
time and greater employee engagement.
"We continually examine our delivery methods to offer
best-in-class learning resources across our broad, worldwide
audience, and the Course Portals provide a huge step forward in
administering self-study education of this type," said Kathy
Milligan, FLMI, ACS, ALHC, Vice President, Education and Training
at LOMA. "The Course Portal approach helps to ensure that all
students have access to the new media-oriented learning features
and content while providing our member companies with the quality
professional development products needed to improve their
Each Course Portal includes access to an introductory video,
Protected PDFs of the assigned study materials, a Test Preparation
Guide, Review Tools, study assignments that help learners set goals
and manage their learning experience, and Help Desk access.
Courses currently delivered via the new Course Portal approach
include Insurance Marketing (LOMA 320) and Accounting and Financial
Reporting in Life Insurance Companies (LOMA 361). The Course Portal
for Business and Financial Concepts for Insurance Professionals
(LOMA 307) will become available later this year.
