SWORPS has developed its own customized Learning Management System that allows for simple registration of users and access to a robust system that presents the training, tracks user participation and assessment results, and delivers certificates of completion for the users as well as reports and records for participating agencies.
One of the training opportunities available through the CSW LMS is a series that provides continuing education in the field of Military Social Work. SWORPS is hosting and supporting eight video workshops through the LMS.
Interested clients are welcome to register for the system at http://utk-csw-lms-prod.sworps.tennessee.edu
SWORPS has worked with the College of Social Work to develop and host a number of training series that utilize video and assessments to provide continuing education contact hours for social workers in the field. Terri Combs-Orme developed the Neuroscience series. Combs-Orme is The Urban Child Institute Endowed Professor at the College of Social Work. Her expertise in the field of Neuroscience is widely recognized in Tennessee.
SWORPS prepared training developed by their subject matter experts from the Center for Literacy, Education and Employment for internet-based delivery. Our development experts used applications such as Articulate, Storyline, and Adobe Flash to meet the design specifications of the client. The flash components allowed for user interactivity with the system. Users input observations at the beginning of the course. Later, during the training these observations were recalled for further consideration. These trainings targeted users who work with adults with learning disabilities and were used with a Moodle Learning Management system.
Training that was developed and designed by SWORPS trainers and is hosted by SWORPS has been made available through the state of Tennessee Department of Children's Service website for many years. An average of over one thousand users have utilized this training each month to learn the best way to report any observed or suspected child abuse.
