Upcoming CITE and FHWA Blended Courses (2010)

The Consortium for ITS Training and Education (CITE) eliminates the inconvenience of attending courses away from the office by providing "blended" courses through an interactive web-based format. All of CITE's courses are accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The courses provide student interactivity through a stimulating mix of participatory activities, such as self-study quizzes, exercises or problems, and drag-and-drop pages. These activities help support and reinforce the text-based information and keep students engaged and active in the learning process.

A "blended" course combines the best features of both instructor-led and web-based instruction. These features include:

  • Live discussions with the instructor through the use of conference calls,
  • Convenient, flexible web-based learning,
  • A specific time schedule in which to complete the course, and
  • Interaction with other students through the use of class problems posted on a discussion board.

The fee for the course is $250 and students can register by going to the CITE web site.
