ORLANDO, Fla., Dec. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In July of 2016, CRCC launched its CRCC e-UNIVERSITY using Digitec Interactive's Knowledge Direct ® 7 learning management system.
In August 2015, CRCC began a rollout of their new CRCC COMMUNITY, the first online community built exclusively to serve all rehabilitation counseling professionals. The CRCC COMMUNITY includes three state-of-the-art online platforms: CRCC ENGAGE, a professional networking platform that empowers its subscribers to create meaningful, engaging dialogue through information sharing, discussion groups, and resource libraries; CRCC ASPIRE, an online job board built exclusively for Certified Rehabilitation Counselors (CRCs) and CRC applicants as well as employers who value the CRC in their hiring practices; and CRCC e-UNIVERSITY, offering self-paced, interactive, on-demand eLearning to the entire rehabilitation counseling profession.
"Research conducted in 2013-14 indicated that CRCs wanted more products and services from CRCC beyond the certification," explained Cindy Chapman, Executive Director for CRCC. "Continuing education was one of these products. Our certificants wanted quality continuing education that was affordable and convenient. That's when we turned to Digitec Interactive."
In July 2016, CRCC launched CRCC e-UNIVERSITY using the Digitec Interactive Knowledge Direct ® 7 learning management system (LMS). With this cutting-edge platform, learners experience an easy-to-use interface combined with the added convenience of automatic placement of completed continuing education to a certificant's personal CE log, which saves time and money. The Knowledge Direct ® 7 LMS provides an integrated learning solution, connecting CRCC's certification/credit monitoring applications, AMS, and website, which help to support CRCC's marketing initiatives to grow CRCC e-UNIVERSITY annual subscriptions and course enrollment. Plus, Knowledge Direct ® 7 meets 508/ADA compliance standards.
"We have a great working relationship with Digitec Interactive," said Susan Brown Zahn, Ph.D., and CRCC's E-Learning Manager. "Digitec is always responsive to our needs. We aren't locked into a one-size-fits-all system. We can control what we want in our LMS. That's a big reason why we chose Digitec Interactive and the Knowledge Direct ® platform. We know if it's possible, Digitec will make it happen."
To encourage rehabilitation counseling professionals to try CRCC e-UNIVERSITY, CRCC is offering a free one hour course entitled Ethics: Exploring the 2017 Code. This free course provides an overview of the new and revised enforceable standards of the 2017 CRCC Code of Professional Ethics for Rehabilitation Counselors. Enforceable standards are intended to assure the public that the rehabilitation counseling profession accepts its responsibility to provide quality service to individuals with disabilities.
"All rehabilitation counselors need to stay current in ethics," explained Scott Dunnell, Director of Marketing and Strategic Alliances for CRCC. "So a free course that provides the latest changes to the Code of Professional Ethics is the perfect way for anyone to try CRCC e-UNIVERSITY with no risk or obligation. Plus, everyone who completes the free course receives one hour of CE credit."
