Microsoft Launches Distance Learning Initiative. ‘Microsoft launched on Nov. 14 its Microsoft Official Distance Learning initiative (MODL), a blended learning program that uses Microsoft Office Live Meeting to conduct MCT-led classes, which students then reinforce with self-paced homework assignments and scenario exercises.
According to MODL Innovations Product Manager Wendy Johnson, MODL is a more productive and convenient alternative to previous learning program models, which typically cram lessons into a mere five days, and require students to leave their offices for the classroom.’
Microsoft Official Distance Learning. ‘This exciting new learning platform blends online classroom training, live discussion, real-world-based scenarios, and self-directed study into one rich and easy-to-use educational experienceâ€” delivered right to your desktop. Microsoft Official Distance Learning (MODL) courses use a proven instructional methodology that attracts professionals who want the interactivity of the classroom and the flexibility of an online course. MODL courses are offered exclusively by authorized Microsoft Certified Partners for Learning Solutions, so you can be confident that you are being supported by a qualified organization that meets strict requirements to provide a valuable distance learning experience.’
