ABLE Institute Offers Unique Online Adaptive Certificate Programs

Boston, MA, December 21, 2007 --( As the market for online training and education proliferates, one institute is taking a step in the next direction with courses that adapt to students’ learning styles. The certificate programs, primarily in management and language, come from the ABLE Institute, an upstart learning center in Boston via one of its partners, IDL Systems.

“Explaining how it works can get technical, but the crux is that each course is designed to interact with students in a way that makes them more interested,” says Brian Finkenstadt, the Director.

The courses present content through one of five different learning styles. Each style presents the information in a different way. Students are placed based on their responses from the course’s quizzes.

More interested students lead to better results, which is what ABLE has found. The Institute recently finished administering a government grant computer training program from IDL Systems (IDL designs and supplies the courses to ABLE) and Cambridge College. Eighty-nine percent of students who spent time on the course completed it, most with scores above 90%.

ABLE will be offering adaptive courses in language and healthcare beginning in January. Registration for the courses is easy with their online forms, and with the downturn in the US economy the certificates can add value to a resume.

About ABLE: The ABLE Institute is a comprehensive, academically oriented institution offering test services, test preparation, and online learning courses with a particular emphasis on employee development.
