Electronic-learning (E-learning) has been increasingly promoted as an effective and efficient method of teaching. Research has shown that even surgical procedures taught in a virtual classroom improve and refine the surgical skills of new and experienced surgeons.
On-line training provides several advantages. It offers a single experience that accommodates various distinct learning styles, and it can target specific needs and learning preferences of an individual through learning style tests. Online training is self-paced, allowing fast learners to bypass instruction that may seem redundant, while novice learners can go at a slower pace. Online courses provide on-demand availability. The interactivity of modules engages and guides users through the training. On-line training gives confidence to the students through immediate feedback and quick reference materials that are always available. It achieves this by providing consistent content delivery and access on a global scale. E-learning can immediately provide certification upon course completion. Web modules, unlike textbooks, can continually incorporate rapid advances in biomedical knowledge and technology without needing to continually purchase new textbooks.

Online Training Courses
VBI’s online courses have a set number of modules, usually 12-15 depending on the course. The courses are designed with pre-chapter questions, to focus the attention of the participant, which then progresses into up-to-date text with high quality photos and videos. There are questions at the end of each course that must be successfully answered in order to receive continuing education credits. The number of credits for each course is determined by the continuing education provider, but is typically 6 credits per course. Longer courses will be worth more credits. At any time, faculty can be reached through e-mail at VBI.
VBI’s video library has an extensive selection of instructional or informational videos, many of which directly relate to course materials. These videos are informative without the need of context from course materials, and the entire library is easily searchable by subject matter or video title. Favorite videos can be saved in your “briefcase” for even easier access on subsequent viewings.
VBI’s understands that every individual or institution has very specific and sometimes complex needs. That is why VBI has the expertise to create custom courses for niche topics of interest. The same level of excellence is applied to these custom courses, and they can be used to train individuals or entire teams. These courses can also be constantly updated or streamlined as the client sees fit. Please call VBI today for more details.
