The Writers Block Launches TWB Online
April 04, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Education NewsBangalore, April 4, 2007: The Writers Block (TWB) has made a foray into the world of online education with the launch of its unique initiative - TWB Online (http://www.twb-dl.com). TWB is India’s leading provider of technical documentation outsourcing and training services and runs the professionally valued TWB Fundamental and TWB Associate certifications programs. It is also the first Indian company to provide an online course specifically on technical writing.
TWB OnLine offers formalized training to students from a remote location. Students who cannot attend a program due to distance or time scheduling constraints can benefit immensely from this program. The main objective of TWB is to provide world class technical documentation outsourcing and training services to suit the demands of technology companies. It is towards this objective that TWB offers various Technical Writing Certification Programs. With TWB OnLine, TWB is looking outside of Bangalore to address the dire need for high quality technical documentation in Indian industry, particularly software. TWB OnLine aims at creating trained manpower at an all-India level.
The rationale behind offering this course online is the accessibility it offers to potential students from different parts of the country. Anybody with access to a computer with Internet connection can enroll for it. TWB believes that offering the specially designed online program would enable them to provide the “TWB Experience” which may otherwise be diluted through a franchise training center model. TWB OnLine will provide students greater flexibility by allowing them to train at their own pace and at their own time without missing out on the authentic “TWB Experience” which is synonymous with their classroom programs. The “TWB Experience” includes focus on communication fundamentals, experienced faculty, comprehensive training material, best industry interface and mentorship right from training to placement and beyond. Recently TWB strengthened the technical documentation value chain with the launch of its TWB OnCampus placement program. TWB OnCampus is an innovative placement program that is fortified by two equally strong initiatives - TWB Alumni and TWB Mentorship. Together TWB OnCampus, TWB Alumni and TWB Mentorship provide a value chain that is the first of its kind in the field of technical writing education and training in India.
The TWB OnLine portal is rich in the features its offers. Every student will be provided with individual login details. The course is divided into units, wherein each unit is accompanied by useful demos for better understanding. At the end of every unit, the student has to complete and upload an assignment. Students can also view their grades online. Individual attention is paid to students by assigning them mentors who not only help them clarify their doubts but also provide valuable feedback. Also, online mentorship is available during business hours. Online communication with the teaching faculty and fellow students is made possible in the form of chat rooms and message forums. Students also have access to a calendar, which helps them to keep track of the upcoming events and dates for submission of assignments. Corporate houses and educational institutes have already shown a keen interest in the online training opportunity that this portal provides.
TWB is a division of Amatra Consulting Pvt. Ltd. and was founded in 2005 with the main objective of providing world-class technical documentation outsourcing and training services to suit the demands of Indian technology companies.
