The world is a digital landscape and has completely transformed the way we comprehend

Not only does e-learning increase retention rates by 25-60%, compared to only 8-10% during face-to-face training, but the COVID-19 pandemic has created countless unknowns that will affect traditional learning.

With e-learning, participants learn nearly five times more material without increasing time spent in training.

Most importantly, online tutorials can afford special needs caregivers the ability to learn despite limitations in time, transportation, respite care, or education.

An internet connection is all that's needed to open the world.
