NCLab's Active Learning Is Very Different Than Traditional Passive Learning

NCLab’s learn-by-doing programs provide students with the practical experience that is required to qualify for job openings. That is very different than traditional learning that leaves graduates with knowledge but without the needed practical experience.

Students love NCLab’s self-paced Learn-By-Doing training method because it keeps them engaged while making them job-ready.

Five key components of the NCLab’s self-paced Learn-By-Doing training method make it possible for students to accumulate the knowledge AND practical experience to qualify for available jobs. They are:

Bite-Sized Lessons and Immediate Self-Assessment

Short bite-sized lessons are followed by immediate self-assessment quizzes, which ensure that students gain confidence with each new concept before moving on. Student surveys show conclusively that students love to learn this way. Success is assured if a student is willing to put in the effort to do the required work.

AI-Based Adaptive Feedback

An integral part of NCLab training is an AI-based Progress Monitor that allows students to learn by doing and to see the results of their problem solving on an immediate basis. In much the same way that an in-person instructor can help an individual student that is having difficulty with a new concept, powerful AI-based algorithms help students with sophisticated adaptive feedback throughout the learning process.

Verified Learning LMS (Learning Management System)

A built-in Verified Learning LMS system records all student learning activities and confirms that students have thoroughly learned the subject matter and have gathered sufficient practical experience to qualify for job openings. The information that the LMS collects helps support personnel understand where students are when they need assistance, and it also helps course developers identify places where the courses can be improved. As a result, all content is continuously being improved as part of NCLab’s Continuous Quality Improvement process.

Assistance By Subject-Matter Experts

Students are provided guidance and support by subject-matter experts throughout their training. They are never alone in their learning.  All support activities quickly feed back into the course development process.

A Creative Suite Where Students Create and Share Portfolio Artifacts

NCLab’s training platform is more than self-paced courses. Students have access to a powerful Creative Suite, where they can create their own portfolio of problem sets and work through them to come up with solutions and save their results for later retrieval and sharing.
