Blended eLearning

zeiders_elearning_iconZeiders designs, develops and delivers learning and development events for online delivery based on a thorough needs analysis. The foundation of our blended eLearning capability is a deep understanding of military and family readiness needs, requirements and culture.

Benefits of using our LMS to deliver and track on-demand trainings:

Communities of Practice
Our communities of practice provide a venue for participants to share knowledge, skills, abilities and best practices with others to achieve excellence in job performance. Zeiders offers customized facilitated virtual programs to ensure continued professional development in support of client needs.

A Case for Zeiders

When faced with the challenge to develop a training program that provides continuing education to globally dispersed staff, we used our state-of-the-art Learning Management System to meet the various training needs of FFSP Personal Financial Management. We conducted a one-day virtual learning conference with multiple sessions and keynote speakers. Times were staggered to reach OCONUS staff. More than 400 government and contract staff attended the event and 235 CEUs from the Association for Financial Counseling and Planning Education (AFCPE) were awarded.
