Profile of the Online Learning Group and its activities

The Online Learning Group is a joint venture between S-net.co.uk ltd and Connect Soft ltd, two British companies who are interested in helping spread useful information, advice and guidance on management skills. We run several different websites all offering free online courses, see details below.

General Information

All these courses are free – simply enroll by visiting the home page and completing the form there. The sites are mobile friendly and can be read from most phones.

In return for our work in writing and producing the content, building, maintaining, managing and marketing the websites, some expenses are covered from on page advertising.

The sites are extremely popular, with in excess of one million visitors a month. In turn this success leads to additional challenges in managing the sites and the services, hosting servers, sending out courses, responding to over 500 emails a day and producing new content in response to requests from our readers.

We also have launched a CV writing service, in response to the thousands of requests from website visitors for help with their CV.  www.careercvshop.com

Translation tool

The website has a built-in facility to translate the content into many languages. Just open any page, and an option to select the language displayed will appear in a dropdown box next to the Google logo. Click on the Select language bar and a list of languages will appear. Select the language you would like the lesson displayed in, click on it, and scroll back up to the lesson content, now displayed in the language of your choice. You may need to repeat this step each time you revisit the site.

Course outline

Please see the list of modules and the accompanying quizzes available on the site under the Lessons tab.

On a PC or laptop this is on the navigation bar.

On a mobile or tablet., first click on the menu and select the lessons button.

Quizzes will be emailed to you at the appropriate point in the course, after you have received the topics covered in the quiz. There are 25 quizzes in all, so there is not necessarily one for every topic; some are grouped together.

Certification on Management Skills Courses

We are not a university so cannot award degrees or post graduate qualifications. We do not ask you to complete assignments, attend courses or write exams. All of these activities would involve a level of cost that would mean we could not offer free courses.

Certificates are awarded for quizzes, and are marked automatically by software. We do not offer completion certificates as our system does not track your progress; also, everyone’s course is different as they can select modules as they wish.

Once you have completed a quiz an automatic software system will dispatch an email to your inbox telling you whether you have passed or failed the quiz.

The pass mark is 70 out of a potential 100 points,10 for each question

Your results are emailed to you, showing how your answers have been scored. The email will also include a link to your Management Skills course quiz completion Certificate for the appropriate quiz. The email lists each question, your response, and the correct answer, so you can see where there are gaps in your knowledge, and repair them.

Even though you have achieved a pass mark, unless you scored a perfect 100, we recommend you review your responses. Repeating the lessons will improve your Management and Business skills.

You can retake the quiz and aim for a perfect 100 out of 100!

It will ensure you have all the correct responses at your fingertips and give you a greater understanding of the skills discussed in the course material.

If you have NOT achieved a pass, you will not get a certificate. Your results are emailed to you, showing each question, your response, and the correct answer, so you can see where there are gaps in your knowledge, and repair them

We recommend you review your responses, then revisit the lessons and retake the quiz.

Taking a quiz

There are a number of quizzes built into the site, which allow you to test your knowledge. There are currently 25. All of the content is covered, but there is not a separate quiz for each topic.

Once you have completed a section, we email the quiz to you, you take it online. Then using an automatic software system, we issue an email to you which records your score, and a quiz certificate if you have achieved a pass. The email lists each question, your response, and the correct answer, so you can see where there are gaps in your knowledge, and repair them.
