Public Profile

Y-Stress is to focused to making online learning accessible, affordable, engaging and enjoyable. Management have determined that e-learning, coupled with state of the art media and streaming technologies, is a vital component of any safety and health related training that teaches critical skills and complex concepts. Working with the George Meany Center for Labor Studies - National Labor College (GMC-NLC) and the University of Massachusetts - Lowell (UMASS - LOWELL) Y-Stress have craeted an online Hazardous Waste Refresher Course and develop an open source e-learning portal and content library to promote knowledge sharing and collaboration among safety professionals. Utilizing streaming technology to incorporate text, audio, graphics, video, 3D animation, simulations and virtual reality to optimally deliver effective knowledge and skills based training scenarios to trainees on demand. Streaming technologies are the new standard for delivering high quality, highly interactive, low bandwidth web content across all browsers and platforms to engage users with a rich learning experience. All web based content will meet SCORM specifications so it can be shared across multiple environments and products. In addition, storing course content as small learning objects will allow content to stream over low bandwidth connections and reduce development time and resources needed for future courses using similar content. This technology will provide trainees with realistic, interactive scenarios to teach and refresh a range of skills, from inspecting a respirator to making command decisions during a simulated emergency response. This approach will significantly increase the quality of online training for courses that teach knowledge and skills that can have serious and significant consequences when mastery is not attained
