| OUR LIFE-LONG MISSION-LEAVE NO CHILD
The concept of The GoodNetwork is
built upon a foundation of a traditional brick and mortar
model which combines off-line/online multi-lingual/cultural
transportable learning centers (L.E.A.P. PODS), Localized Community-based
e-Learning Centers/Cafe's, a proprietary satellite-based high-speed
secure Virtual Private Network, a proprietary "Content Engine"
or "Knowledge Bank" for unique course content creation and development,
and partnerships with industry leaders in the areas of e-learning,
Satellite I.T. and Digital Contents). The GoodNetwork
utilizes its' VPN (Virtual Private Network) as the
primary delivery vehicle for information, knowledge and edu-tainment
products and services.
By combining the above-referenced strengths with advanced learning
science, proprietary software, and the latest methodology, The
GoodNetwork seeks to take a leading position in
the dynamic e-learning market. And by localizing learning (placing
the delivery platforms in geographical or cultural context),
The GoodNetwork reaches out to the
exploding emerging international markets, underscoring one of
the company's core themes: "making universal knowledge locally
relevant and accessible".
The GoodNetwork also serves as a window
to the intelligence we need to thrive in both our personal and
working lives. Through links to an array of e-learning destinations,
the company delivers the vital information demanded by an increasingly
knowledge driven economy. Whether its "just-in-time" instruction
to perform a single task, edu-tainment & fun, a comprehensive
curriculum for a credentialed academic program, corporate training,
continuing education to maintain skills, or practical information
needed to navigate around foreign markets, The GoodNetwork
is a one stop knowledge shop.
The company originated in response to the often tried but so far undelivered promise to "Bridge the Digital-Divide"! The Internet, mobile phones, video-games and now I-Pods have transformed the information age into the Insta-formation age. The more "wired" the world, the more insatiable and demanding the appetite for instantaneously delivered information and digital contents has become thus driving the development of portable tools to make it immediate, fun and engaging. Our answer is dynamic, rich, and interactive environments affording individuals, corporations, and diverse communities an easy, affordable and enjoyable way to access and disseminate digital content. If knowledge is power, The GoodNetwork harnesses that power. And in reaching towards its full promise it potentially becomes one of the key drivers of the insta-formation age; sorting, screening and organizing "Good" digital contents throughout the world!
IN OUR WORLD OF KNOWLEDGE AND LEARNING…….
THE POWER OF 'E' IS
AND OUR 'E' STANDS FOR MUCH,
MUCH MORE THAN JUST EDUCATION:
2 Each Other
IN THE GENERAL SENSE, WHAT REALLY IS E-LEARNING?
E-learning is defined as education where the
instructor and students are (at least partially) geographically
dispersed and technology is used to facilitate education.
E-learning will not totally replace education
as we know it since traditional education serves many purposes,
which cannot easily be accomplished at a distance. However,
E-learning can supplement or replace multiple
traditional classroom education programs and asynchronous and
synchronous technologies can be used to support learning at
E-learning can also be used to provide continuing
and professional education and certification programs, deliver
refresher courses, and explore new subjects.
E-learning is becoming increasingly popular
due to its potential advantages:
||Cost savings (e.g., fewer classrooms required, less travel costs).
||Time savings (e.g., greater flexibility possible, time zones and scheduling not significant problems).
||Accessibility to experts and students.
||More options and flexibility for class structure.
||More diversity possible in class because of location independence.
||Greater access to learning opportunities. Why
Government organizations as well as corporations are resorting
to e-Learning as an answer to the challenges imposed by the
digital economy. Our approach to e-Learning is based on the
following imperatives and strategies.
||The desire to unleash the power of web technologies to train/educate geographically dispersed students.
||The need to create learning organizations to address the multiple challenges imposed by the digital economy.
||The need to bridge the digital divide.
||The need to explore multiple training requirements such as:
||professional training to meet licensing requirements
||training to meet continuing education requirements
