Across your organization, mainframe computing professionals are striving to keep your z/VSE system running at its best, complete critical projects, and help the company exceed business goals. Given the realities of mainframe computing today, when any delay can have a serious business impact, the development and maintenance of critical z/VSE skills is essential!
Interskill Learning's e-learning curriculum provides a rich array of content assets and flexible delivery technologies to support the full range of formal and on-demand learning needs of your z/VSE computing organization. With instant access to the right resources, learning is continually available close to the work, resulting in immediate impact to critical decisions and projects.
Interactive, Engaging & Effective
Interskill Learning is serious about creating a successful learning experience for your z/VSE and z/VM personnel. Rather than just focusing on the technical aspects of online learning, we try to focus on the learning itself, and how technology can be used to facilitate advanced learning outcomes.
Simulation of z/VSE Environments
The experience and familiarity gained by training with z/VSE simulations serve to not only increase the student’s knowledge and skill level, but to boost their confidence when working on the live system. Students will gain hands on expertise in a multitude of commands and capabilities.
Ongoing Reference Tools
The indexing feature allows students to access particular sections of the training as an ongoing reference tool. Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, this content is always at your personnel’s fingertips. Whether as a refresher to a course you have long since completed or a quick reminder on a technique or concept before an upcoming project, e-learning is no longer just an online class, it is an ongoing learning solution.
Unmatched breadth, depth and currency of courseware
Each of Interskill's courses can be completed by itself but typically we consider each course as one component of a complete training solution. A real strength of this e-learning comes when personnel have completed multiple courses on multiple facets of their work environment and job competency. It offers the opportunity for your organization to build a powerful, versatile, cross trained, multi-skilled z/VSE workforce.
All courses are kept up to current version so even your senior people will benefit by keeping up with the latest releases of your core software.
‘Latest version’ training is also invaluable to pre-train your people before you upgrade current software or implement new software.
All our z/VSE e-learning content is designed as a structured course. It teaches basic principles or skills, promotes understanding, and then builds on that strong foundation with further, more advanced principles or skills. Insuring this understanding at each stage is achieved by continual testing throughout all of the course modules.
Testing methods are designed to be the most effective for the content being taught. i.e.
- Testing on concepts is done with multiple choice, fill the blank and various combinations of drag and drop questions to stimulate the user.
- Testing on applications that are heavily screen based utilize screen simulations and ask the student to enter commands and accomplish tasks.
- Testing on coding (COBOL, REXX, PL/I, Linux etc) asks the student to actually practice their coding skills.
