Involuntary Commitment Application: An Online Training Module
Whitfield, Kimberly Y.
Information Systems Education Journal, v10 n3 p18-34 Jun 2012
The use of Web-based technology has enabled many government and corporate training divisions to reach more learners than ever before. Institutions are restructuring their budgets, obtaining funding from governments and foundations to fund resources needed to increase online learning offerings. While online learning is increasing, questions arise as to the quality when compared to traditional face-to-face instruction. Research indicates that online learning can be more effective than face-to-face instruction. The purpose of this project is to analyze training sessions used by a state judicial system in southeastern United States for their Involuntary Commitment (IC) training to determine if self-directed online training is a viable solution to replace the current face-to-face training program and if so, design, develop and evaluate a pilot program for online training material.
