    [Providers] How FocusAssist Works
    While this is certainly heavy handed it provides a great substitute for a live training environment, allowing trainees to take the course at their convenience. In a live training environment, generally a real life trainer works with one or more trainees to educate them on the training material. One benefit of this is that the trainer has a good sense of a trainee’s level of engagement. For instance, if a trainee were to fall asleep or be playing with their phone and not paying attention it would be quite obvious in a live training session. Note on Privacy and Security. Developer

    [Providers] Five ways to encourage participation in the classroom
    The question to ask yourself is - "How do I provide visual reinforcement for discussion in the classroom." How can you tell stories or provide examples in class that others can relate to? In the last couple of days I've had some fascinating conversations with my colleagues about why some students don't participate enough in class. While I understand that part of this could go down to individual personalities, the more I think about it, the more I believe this is a facilitation problem than a participation problem. What feelings does that kind of environment evoke for you? Maybe?"
