Web-Based Training expands features and services

October 14, 2003

University Park, Pa. -- Penn State's most comprehensive source for free training has gotten even better. Web-Based Training (WBT), a service of Information Technology Services Training Services, now has a seamlessly integrated interface and plenty of new user-friendly features.

New courses are constantly being added to the WBT repertoire, which now incorporates over 1,200 technology and business and professional development courses-free to Penn State faculty, staff and students all the time. Now users can log in to their WBT Training Plans without losing access to all of the menus and navigational features within the WBT site. By the spring semester, faculty will be able to assign WBT courses as required or recommended learning activities, and students will be able to access and run the WBT courses through Penn State's Course Management System, ANGEL.

Shorter targeted courses have been developed to save time and help the user learn only the skills necessary to perform specific tasks. Customized curricula focus learning toward specific skill sets for personal or professional development, and for added convenience, new animated tutorials can help users learn how to use WBT quickly and efficiently.
