A New Approach to Learning
LOMA is pleased to introduce the Course Portal, an exciting new way to bring our award-winning, industry specific designation content to learners. We’ve created an online resource from which learners access everything they need to study for a LOMA Designation Program course and prepare for its exam. Course Portals are designed to appeal to a variety of learning styles by blending the more traditional study experience with several new online and multi-media features. Course Portals offer:
- Flexibility and choice. Learners can study the course content both online and in a printed format. And for those learners with limited computer access, the course can be completed successfully using only the printed resources.
- Improved learning and exam performance. By structuring the assignments and providing features to enhance and enliven the study experience, learners stay motivated.
- Simplified purchase process. Learners, or Ed Reps enrolling learners, pay one enrollment fee for the course and receive all study materials, the new online resources, plus an electronic or paper exam enrollment. The all-inclusive price is less than purchasing a traditional printed textbook, a study aid, and an exam enrollment separately. And there are no shipping fees!
