I’ve been with Kwela almost since our inception, helping to set up the business operations – everything from internal systems and processes needed, to client-facing ones too.
So – I’ve had, and continue to have, a wide range of responsibilities, and I’ve always considered myself pretty organized. As such, I’ve never felt the need when I have had the opportunity to sit in on Kwela’s Get Organized time management workshop, to actually partake in it.
But when a couple of our programs became available in an eLearning format, I thought there was no harm in checking them out. Here’s some of the benefits I discovered:
- Unlike other online courses I’ve tried (which I found long, with too much on-screen reading etc), Kwela’s eCourses are more condensed and each of the segments that make up each course are short, which worked well when I viewed part of them in my ‘interrupted frequently’ job
- They can be viewed on any device, which also worked well when I wanted to finish going through one of the courses on my tablet during commercials during one of my fave TV shows (can’t say which one as that may reveal too much about me …)
- I am a visual person, and found the diagrams with text that come up behind or beside Russel (one of Kwela’s Principals and the teacher of all 3 eLearning topics currently available) helpful to reinforce the concepts he puts forth
