The Planning Council of New York presents its implementation of an online tool used to educate and certify planning council members and staff, providing a more flexible way to learn, and an objective scoring tool to ensure a minimum level of understanding of members and staff. The online tool, using the eCOMPAS e2Community platform, consists of an interactive educational component, a user-friendly quiz for each lesson, a printable certificate of completion, and an administrative reporting module. The tool supplements the current training processes and allows users to take multimedia courses at their own pace at home or anywhere with the Internet, while giving them real-time feedback on their knowledge levels. Using data instead of anecdote, the Council is able to identify strengths and weaknesses of participants’ knowledge for continuous training program improvement. Presenters share an interactive demonstration of the tool and lessons learned on the implementation process.

Learning Objectives:

  • Workshop participants understand how a paradigm of online planning council education helps ensure minimum levels of knowledge important to the mission and operations of the council.
    By end of workshop, participants will be able to describe how to adopt and adapt strategies and tools to deliver Web-based training to their planning councils and staff.
  • Participants will understand the challenges and benefits of an innovative program for Web-based online training.
