Electric Paper launches new courseware for New CLAiT

Electric Paper, today unveiled a new interactive product designed to help raise completion rates and grades for the New CLAiT qualification that is offered in schools, FE Colleges, adult educations centres and training organisations, as well as NHS Trusts.

Commenting on the launch, Jonny Parkes, Managing Director of Electric Paper, said: "Many learners find text books uninspiring and, as a result, struggle to retain knowledge and develop practical skills. By allowing teachers to adopt a fresh approach and inject their classes with inspiring materials, our new courseware will lead to greater motivation and higher levels of attainment. The New CLAiT solution is our best product yet and builds on the deep understanding of instructional design which we have developed over the past 8 years. It is stimulating, engaging and highly interactive with a host of new features that bring real benefits to teachers and students alike."

Gerry O'Keefe, Marketing Manager at OCR (the awarding body for the CLAiT course) added: "With some ICT courses and qualifications, completion rates are an issue. But the key to our success has been innovation, flexibility, progression routes and partnership. Electric Paper has the quality e-learning materials and support service that will help us all to reach the best ever completion rates for candidates. OCR is tried and tested and Electric Paper is likewise a leader in its field."
