Get Smart without Leaving Home

Online education, elearning or distance learning are all terms for the fastest growing segment of education and training in our world.

Wikopedia defines electronic learning:

Electronic learning (or e-Learning or eLearning) is a general term used to refer to a form of learning in which the instructor and student are separated by space or time where the gap between the two is bridged through the use of online technologies.

E-learning is used interchangeably in a wide variety of contexts. In companies it refers to the strategies that the company network uses deliver training courses to employees. In distance education, universities define it as a planned teaching/learning experience that uses a wide spectrum of technologies, mainly Internet, to reach learners at a distance. Lately in most universities, e-learning is used to define a specific mode to attend a course or programs of study where the students rarely, if ever, attend face-to-face or for on-campus access to educational facilities, because they study on-line.

Gatlin Education offers our freight broker training course and a bunch of other great courses. They have over 100 certification courses. They have teamed up with universities across the nation to offer the courses. You can learn a career through elearning, hone a skill, take a course towards your college major of study or get training for your job. Is on line learning for you? Take our survey.

We started Brooke Transportation Training with one live course offered monthly in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. We expanded by offering courses in different locations for the convenience of our students. When we met with Gatlin and realized the potential to be able to train students all over the country and the world even through distance learning. Rewriting the course to work online was challenging but worth the effort. My vision has always been to help others succeed by learning the tools and integrity necessary to prosper both financially and in life.
