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.

My Password Technique – What’s Yours?

Is the beginning of the year a good time to change your passwords? Seems as good as any!

This advice is for everyone. Parents, you definitely want your children to know this, too, for obvious reasons.

Let me try to convince you that you want to have different passwords on different services: If you use the same one on everything, all someone needs to do is get your email and password and they can get into everything. It would be like having your front door key open your bank vault, car, and every other lock you own. That’s not good.

“An ounce of preventucation is worth a pound of cure”

At PBJ Learning, we have approached the design of our material from the very beginning to be accessible and enjoyable for our students. We call the design of our courses “Preventucation.” Preventucation blends traditional education (measurable learning objectives) with gamification (interactive learning using gaming techniques), and allows learners to practice what they learn in a safe environment before their mastery is tested.

I am only reviewing FREE courses right now, so this one is on hold. They have a LOT of materials on their site for research and learning. All the free stuff is below.

I have dug around their website a lot and it’s a bit big and, unfortunately, confusing. They have some amazing tools and data there, if you dig in.

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.
