The core project team for the Autism Intervention Certification comprised of Richard Solomon (Founder & Medical Director), Onna Solomon (Learning Director & Instructional Designer), Nick Vetter (Program Coordinator & Course Builder), and Shana Wirth (Manager of Training).
PLAY Project chose Stream in place of a more traditional LMS to provide a user-friendly platform that allowed a very social environment for trainees to give and receive feedback from each other and The PLAY Project.
In particular, they were impressed with the platform’s ability to combine live training, user contributions, automated emails and notifications, considering it the best combination for the type of training that PLAY Project Certification would need.
As the lead instructor on this course, I find it easy to use and wonderful for user engagement. I noticed a dramatic increase in online interaction among the participants since we switched to Stream’s platform. I love that I get summary emails on activity, so I know when participants need support or guidance.
This project has allowed us to turn a completely in-person training to an online and interactive training that has allowed more people to participate and extended the reach of potential certification trainees that The PLAY Project can train.
We have found that not only have the number of certification trainees increased but because of the online content and the Stream platform, the quality of our training has increase and therefore we are training more prepared PLAY Project Consultants to go into the field and work with children with developmental disabilities.
