A FEW years ago, the Federal Government started examining the different ways Australians interact with government. Overwhelmingly, contact was in person. A report released recently by the Finance Minister, Lindsay Tanner, underlined a dramatic change in people's behaviour: now most people are using the internet to contact government agencies and departments. "This major shift shows how important it is for the govern- ment to...evolve the delivery of services to meet the demands of citizens," Mr Tanner said. A Canberra company has anticipated this need to deliver services in an increasingly com- plex online environment. Ethos CRS is poised to launch its online course, 'From gram- mar to clear writing', based on a full-capability e-learning plat- form. "The idea of using a pdf for online learning is hopelessly outdated," according to Chas Savage, managing director of Ethos CRS. "Our content can be delivered through a variety of media: text, images, graphics, games, video and interactive exercises," Mr Savage said. "What's more, Ethos CRS's e-learning platform can be delivered securely and remote- ly---anywhere, anytime---to suit trainees," he said. E-learning as a training tool is booming. In 2006, global investment in online courses was $585 million dollars. In 2009, it had risen exponen- tially to more than $29 billion and is set to reach $53 billion by 2014. It's easy to see why. E-learning is a cost-effective alternative to traditional class- room training, and because an online course is done at a time convenient to trainees, work- place disruption is minimised. Mr Savage said content from 'From grammar to clear writing' can easily be customised for an organisation and then adapted to suit specific learning needs of trainees. "For people wanting to write more clearly, our course is a rich, interactive learning experi- ence," Mr Savage said. Trainees work through nine modules, which include an explanation of the grammar that underpins clear writing, examp- les, tips, exercises and a final test. "For organisations, we offer full reporting and assessment functionality, plus support," he said. Ethos CRS specialises in train- ing and communications -- in person, in print, online and in video.
