eLearning + Coaching = Breakthrough in Java Skills?

Coached e‐Learning was Voted as the #1 Choice for Java Learning

JavaBlackBelt just announced its “Coached e‐Learning” for Java developers.

In a developer survey to be released next week, this Coached e‐Learning was selected as the #1 choice for Java learning compared with classroom training and self‐paced e‐Learning.

Here’s how it works:

1. In these courses, the coach meets with the student to begin each course, reviews the course plan and materials, and agrees to a schedule.

2. The student then learns at their own pace from the JavaBlackBelt eLearning platform ‐‐ online materials and videos, community forums, exercises, and exams.

3. Along the way, the coach checks intermediate goals, answers questions, helps overcome obstacles, and oversees progress.

4. The course is completed when the student passes the final exam, which, depending on the student’s schedule and pace of learning, follows one to two weeks of coursework.

The company says that the courses offer an optimal blend of learning methods:

‐‐ the affordability and schedule flexibility of self study,
‐‐ the retention of exercises,

‐‐ the engagement of community learning,
‐‐ the measurement of exams, and
‐‐ the experience and guidance of instructors.

Coached e‐Learning courses are immediately available across Europe, US, and India in: Spring Fundamentals, Spring Workshop, JPA/Hibernate Fundamentals, JPA/Hibernate Workshop, and Java for Managers (with more to come). Tuition per course is $395 (US/India) and €295 (Europe).
