IEC Dallas Delivers Blended Learning and Lesson Captures with WizIQ
Independent Electrical Contractors (IEC) Dallas is one of the prominent local chapters of IEC, a trade association with nearly 3,000 members and 54 chapters nationwide. IEC Dallas offers a four-year electrical apprentice program to high school graduates interested in joining the electrical industry. They also provide continuing education for electrical professionals seeking state license renewal.
IEC Dallas’ electrical apprentice program requires students to complete 8,000 hours of on-the-job training as well as 576 hours of classroom training. However, since the state of Texas requires students to be present in class for their classroom training, it was causing problems for those who cannot attend class due to working out of town or some other reason. IEC Dallas wanted an online teaching partner that could help them meet these and other students’ needs.
In venturing into the online teaching arena, IEC Dallas had a number of specific requirements. They were looking for a teaching solution that enabled them to:
• Manage multiple teacher accounts
• Create, manage, and deliver self-paced as well as live courses
• Upload and share rich teaching materials like PPTs, videos, PDFs, and documents
• Create feature-rich tests
• Deliver live sessions via a virtual classroom
IEC Dallas found the perfect solution for all their needs in WizIQ, and adopted it in 2011 to deliver self-paced courses and live online sessions. Plus, using an online lecture capture tool and WizIQ Virtual Classroom, IEC Dallas is able to broadcast classroom sessions for students who cannot be present in class to provide online, virtual access to the physical classroom.
Even better, WizIQ Virtual Classroom allowed IEC Dallas to capture live lessons and share the recordings with absentee students. Since choosing WizIQ, IEC Dallas has delivered over 500 successful live sessions to date—finding WizIQ a reliable technology partner to help them overcome various teaching challenges without any hassle.
