Knowledgepool, Microsoft, e-Learning, online mentoring

KnowledgePool, the worldwide learning solutions provider has become one of the first training organisations to be invited by Microsoft to become a Member of the Microsoft e-Learning Alliance (MeLA). MeLA has been established to provide support services to Microsoft Customers wanting to create blended learning solutions utilising either the Microsoft eLearning Library (MeLL) or Microsoft’s’ Software Assurance eLearning (SAeL) products. Microsoft eLearning products can deliver effective learning solutions as part of a blended learning approach and topics covered include Microsoft Office applications, as well as technical training leading to Microsoft Certified Professional qualifications.
“We are delighted to become part of MeLA and for our extensive experience in online mentoring to once again be recognised by Microsoft. Live interaction is a vital element of e-Learning that is under-utilised but makes a considerable difference to individuals and the learning experience.” Michael Copestake, managing director at KnowledgePool.

“Organisations today need to offer a blend of learning to best serve their workforce. We have established a flexible model for organisations to follow that will deliver effective learning when a combination of elements such as face to face training, virtual classrooms and online mentoring are implemented. KnowledgePool’s online mentoring service is excellent and provides 24×7 live access to tutors who respond to students’ queries in real time – ensuring that the learning experience is complete.”
