January 15, 2014 (Alliston, ON) – More and more companies that deliver training as their core business are starting to think green and reverting to technology to deliver course material to students. FlightPath International has recently integrated the use of iPad technology into their technical courses to great success. “This is something our clients have asked for”, said Garth Twitchell, Vice President Technical Training Division. “Paper manuals for our courses which typically run for several weeks are cumbersome for our clients. We are pleased to integrate iPad technology into the classroom. While still providing paper supplements, including an 11×17 printed schematics manual, students have the ability to zoom in on graphics, make notes, highlight text and make their own annotations right on the courseware presented to them on the iPads.”
The students are then provided electronic copies of the courseware with their own annotations they have made throughout the course. “Feedback from the courses since we have implemented the iPads into the classroom has been tremendous,” Twitchell stated. “This is the technology age and our students are very comfortable with the iPads and enjoy the environmentally friendly features they offer.”
FlightPath International continues to increase the use of technology in the classroom and expects to make further announcements in the first quarter of 2014.
