Faculty Mentors use online pre-tests, transcripts, and interview results to recommend a sequence of learning resources to help candidates attain the required competencies for program completion. Mentors individualize the program in a manner consistent with each candidate's learning style. A wide variety of ways are provided for students to interact with educational materials, facilitated by technology. Typically, we work with education providers to design online (or CD-ROM based) learning experiences that align to the competencies. We will present a variety of the learning resources we have had developed, discuss the development process, and the effectiveness of these non-traditional, technology-based educational resources.
