Take advantage of this time at home to pursue your World@Work professional designations or earn your continuing education credits!  WorldatWork will continue to offer both Virtual and E-Learning courses as an alternative to in-person courses in 2023.  So, what’s the difference between Virtual and E-Learning?

A Virtual Class is similar to an in-person class except the delivery model is online. Both the instructor and students are virtually located, and the subject matter is taught in a synchronous setting, enabling the same type of real-time interaction and activities as if students were together in the same room. The 2023 virtual class schedule has been published—click HERE to view.

E-Learning is self-paced learning where videos have been recorded and the student consumes the content at their own pace.  An instructor has put their thoughts and insights into pre-recorded videos explaining the content.
