Demands for Blended Learning

Demands for Blended Learning

Experienced PMs are rare and costly. To scale and be competitive, new methods of training are required. Executive leadership tell us that to be really good in today’s Integrated PM jobs, PMs need at least 10 years of practice.

pmNERDS’ Training Course Designer

pmNERDS’ Training Course Designer

"If I engage a Course Designer, then my training course will be much more compelling and effective than if I did it myself, but I will most likely have to share my profits with them."

There is a technical side to building any e-Learning course. The more flexibility and functionality the learning platform offers, the more difficult it can be learning how to use. At pmNERDS, we use MOODLE, one of the World's largest open source learning management platforms. We use MOODLE because of the wide number of course designer and training videos available to assist new designers.

“If I decide to become a Course Instructor, then I can help other people and make money, but I will need to provide support for marketing as much as an author does for their books. ”

Project Based Learning

Project Based Learning

“PBL: Building Project People for a More Efficient Future.”

It is not a secret that as a society we have dramatically outpaced our ancestors with innovative technology that has increased our standard of living and life expectancy all over the world, yet habitual inefficiency is literally part of our daily lives. Industrially developed countries extensively waste food, we ship consumer goods that could have been made locally, and as a society we are influenced through culture to consume goods based on desires rather than needs. This reality is not likely to change quickly and neither will larger problems such as global warming, natural disasters, disease, poverty, and famine that exist all over the world. The steps taken thus far have shown limited results, because to overcome these issues we must seek a change in conscious orientation. We must empower the next generation with unconventional thinking and problem solving skills to reach a better tomorrow.
