People who want to take their hobby to the next level, or those with an interest in developing their work skills, can now benefit from a new partnership between learndirect and Wiley, the publishers of the For Dummies series.
Three elearning courses, spanning a broad topic range are now available on the learndirecteCourses website. These are Social Media Marketing For Dummies, HTML5 For Dummies andDigital SLR Photography For Dummies
They’re short courses which are available to buy and learn online, so learners can be up and running in a matter of minutes. Each course includes real-world exercises, animated step-by-step guides, practice labs, examples, illustrations and hints and tips.
With each one costing less than £25, all the tutor support is built in which means learners can complete them at their own pace.
Suzana Lopes, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at learndirect stated: “We are delighted to be working with Wiley on the elearning For Dummies series. These new courses are a great addition to our expanding catalogue of materials for individuals and companies.
“Lots of people will have a new camera after Christmas and maybe don’t know how to make the best of it. Similarly, with the huge expansion of social media many will want to know how they can use it to market their business or the company they work for.
“These courses are fun and engaging and a great way to learn new skills which can be put into practice quickly. We see our partnership having real potential and we’re looking forward to working with Wiley on the release of other For Dummies courses in the future.”
Onaysah, a learndirect eCourse learner from Batley added: “I have really enjoyed this Digital SLR Photography For Dummies course as it has been extremely beneficial and given me an excellent introduction into the world of SLR photography. It gave me a quick overview of how to use the various shooting modes in my new SLR Camera in an easy to understand format without too much jargon! The built in ‘my notes’ functionality is very easy to use and a great time saver. I would highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to take their first steps into the exciting technology of SLR photography”.
