REVIEW: Com­mer­cial Lodg­ing Train­ing Video “HUMAN TRAFFICKING: HOW HOTEL EMPLOYEES CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE” from Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton

This is, essentially, an unskippable video and a certificate form saying you have watched the video. Really. And this is provided by the Texas Attorney General. Let me make this perfectly clear: there is no test for understanding, the certificate is granted by collecting all the letters while you watch the video.

Surprisingly, collecting letters is actually more proof you’ve watched a video than most other video-only courses.

REVIEW: “Your Role In Preventing Human Trafficking: Recognize the Signs” from ECPAT

This is a part of a series of reviews of other online courses, focused upon “free” accessibility. Paid courses get mentions as well. Most every site with courses has great resources so those are covered and included.

Summary: Online only. Browser-based. One downloadable resource that didn’t exist. Good material! Good sharing with certificate. No activities with interactivity. Didn’t see any downloadable material, unless that was the resource that didn’t exist (details in article). Certificate upon completion that requires no test.
