E-Course or Recorded Webinar? What's the difference?
These are narrated, animated, and guided by avatars and the user. They include quizzes, activities, games and resources written and designed by ACA subject matter experts. Some include a full-text version of the script that may be printed as a workbook. They do not include any recorded lecture or chat from ACA Certified Instructors and member participants. An e-course is often the fastest form of training; most can be completed in 1-2 hours. They launch via access to ACA's Learning Management System (LMS) or an LMS, Flash Drive, or CD-ROM on your company's internal network. E-courses are NOT eligible for purchase using the ACA Training Zone.

These are saved recordings from ACA's live Hot Topic webinars. COMING SOON: ACA's Core Curriculum Library of courses will be offered as recorded webinars in 2020! The user will experience a slide show, activities, and the chat from that session's participants. These lectures are typically in 90-minute sessions, while a few total 3-4 clock hours. Materials for the Core classes include a Participant Workbook with activities and quizzes that may be used electronically or printed. These courses take a little more time but offer more stories and discussion from people in all areas of the industry. Participants can pause and review the recording as needed. If you like our live webinars but just can't make the scheduled times, this may be the right choice for you. Recorded webinars ARE ELIGIBLE in the ACA Training Zone.
