Human Performance Technologies Corp. Releases Custom QuickWare E-Learning Solutions

July 10, 2001

HPT’s first series of Custom QuickWareINTO courses cover workplace violence, sexual harassment, positive employee relations, new hire orientation, privacy awareness, and information security. E-learning courses under development will cover workplace diversity, communication skills and compliance issues that affect services and manufacturing industries.

“A quality e-learning program, with a corporation’s look and feel, is becoming one the most cost-efficient, fastest ways to educate, motivate, retain and attract employees in today’s workforce,” said Margaret Rueda, HPT president and founder.

“HPT’s Custom QuickWarequality uses quality instruction, interactive components, graphic creativity and segmented modules to keep learners engaged so they can enjoy learning. And employers don’t have to wait months for a product they need now.”

E-learning programs can be accessed 24/7 to provide information on-demand to employees in a single location or many geographic areas. And the cost savings for companies can be exponential. E-learning expert Brandon Hall indicates in his October 2000 report on best practices in distance learning that IBM saved $200 million in 1999 with e-learning. The company was able to provide five times the learning at one-third the cost of alternate delivery.(1)
