The online learning features of the uCertify platform include interactive textbooks, study notes, flash cards, labs, videos, quizzes, exercises, pre-and-post assessment, and more. Students take practice exams from a large test bank of questions in learn, test, and review modes for optimal learning - until they have mastered the concepts. Then the progress tracking and powerful analytics of the uCertify platform help students clearly identify their areas of weakness and strength, as well as their progress at any given point of time.

CIW courses are available on the uCertify platform in three modes:

  • Self-study mode for self-paced students and IT professionals
  • Mentor guided mode for competency-based education
  • Instructor-led mode for schools and colleges

For instructors, uCertify provides a wide selection of instructor tools to help instructors develop better learning outcomes. These tools help instructors create sections to manage class more effectively. They help keep track of student performance at every step. They allow instructors to create assessments for their students to analyze the level of understanding of any particular topic. They give the instructors the ability to customize lessons, flashcards, exercises, quizzes, and practice tests. And they give the instructors the ability to create lecture plans for their students to provide a comprehensive learning experience.

The student area contains interactive chapters and lessons, practice tests, and post assessment. In this section, you can link to the instructor and can gauge your performance by monitoring your test history and performance analytics. Interactive chapters and lessons comprehensively cover CIW certification exam objectives. This area includes all the interactive learning resources, such as flashcards and interactive exercises. The practice tests in this section closely follow the CIW certification exam objectives and are designed to simulate real exam conditions. Each course has two sets of practice tests with hundreds of questions to ensure effective learning outcomes. The prep engine provides you with different sets of questions to prepare you for the certification exam in a test environment. The custom test then provides you with the flexibility to create a set of questions based on your learning needs.
