New e-Learning Courses on 4G, LTE, WiMAX, OFDM, MIMO, NextGen (NGN), IPTV, MPLS

We’ve just released a series of click-and-play (self-study) courses on such hot telecom topics as 4G, LTE, WiMAX, OFDM/MIMO, NextGen Technologies, IPTV, and MPLS. Being recordings of WebLive™ courses recently taught live on the Web, they combine lecture with class discussion, both verbal and text chat. So they convey the excitement and interactivity of a live class. Who are the instructors? Three of our popular principal instructors, each with 25+ years experience and a record of excellent participant evaluations, class after class.

We call such courses Now@Web™, meaning they are on the Web and are available Now! Perhaps not very clever, but the name gets the point across. These are courses available anytime and anywhere.

Recognizing that different audiences have different needs, we cover each topic in three different ways: “Technical deep dives” aimed at technical professionals; “quickie overviews” suitable for managers/executives, decision/policy makers, marketing/sales, OSS/BSS folks, consultants, attorneys; and “mini-courses” that boil the essentials down into a short, one-hour long presentation. Thus, no matter what your background or interest, you will find a course that covers the material at just the right level for you needs.

The full Now@Web™ line-up includes: Next Generation Network (NGN), MPLS backbone, and IPTV. Also, on the wireless side: 4G technologies and services, technologies that enable 4G (OFDM, MIMO), LTE (overview, technical) and WiMAX (overview, technical). And, finally, three mini-courses: WiMAX, LTE, and NextGen Technologies.

Courses aimed at general audiences are half day long; those meant for technical audiences are mostly one day long. The mini-courses are, of course, only one hour in duration. Being self-study and available 24/7, you can play, pause, and re-play at your convenience, from work or home. Take a course from beginning to end all in one sitting, or spread it out over a period of time. Catching up with the state-of-the-art of telecom could not be any easier!

They are affordable, too! The half-day courses are only $149  and the full-day courses are only $298. That’s quite a bargain, compared with the $700-$1,000 price tag of a typical one-day live course, not to mention the expense of travel to the class venue. You can make a good deal even better when you buy $1,000 worth of courses at one time. That will get you a 10% discount on top of the already low prices.
