he primary goal of the student is to acquire knowledge. The student may be in search of many different types of lessons - new job skills, product knowledge, or improved language skills. More often than not, the student will be in search of knowledge that will allow him or her to to be more successful and efficient on the job. The Kiket Online Learning Centers can benefit student learning in these ways:
Flexibility - Online learning is very flexible. Lessons can be replayed, or viewed according to the student's availability, which allows participation in the lessons on the student's own schedule.
Pacing - Unlike a real world setting, the online class can be paused or replayed, allowing students to repeat lessons or move through a lesson at his or her own pace.
Learning style - Different people have different learning styles. Some people learn with visual aides, some by reading, some by listening, some through dialogue, others require a combination of all of these. Web-based training can maximize the use of all of these styles by incorporating streaming audio or video, hands-on testing and exercises, white papers, and email or forums for interaction with instructor and/or peers.
Reach - Extend learning to a wider audience, one which may have previously been restricted by geographic location or scheduling conflicts.
