What is eLearning ?
eLearning is an online program that lets you complete the knowledge development sections of selected courses online. Most SDI/TDI courses are available online – including the SDI speciality courses and TDI Advanced Nitrox, Decompression Procedures and CCR courses. PADI also offer the theory for their courses online and in particular the Open Water course is especially popular.
The Advantages of eLearning
1. Come to the dive centre prepared: As students can do all the theory for the courses before they come to the dive centre, they are better prepared for the in-water work. They can study at their own pace too rather than spending a day in a classroom doing all the theory at once, so they will retain their knowledge better.
2. Maximize their time: Students can fit the studying around their lives, doing a section every now and then and don’t have to spend a hot sunny day of their holiday in the classroom.
3. Maximises knowledge retention. The instructor receives a detailed report of any areas where the student has not fully understood a particular area and so can help the student overcome any problem areas.
With SDI/TDI eLearning you can complete the sections as long as you are online, some PADI courses eg Open Water are available for phones and tablets thus allowing students to be offline whilst studying.
