Better Business Cases Foundation self-paced learning

Learning technology

The self-paced Better Business Cases Foundation online course has been designed with the latest web technologies, so it works on Windows, MacOS, iOS and Android. It is fully responsive, and fits any device and screen size – desktop, tablet and mobile. No browser plugins or installation files are required.

Best practice design

Like all our online courses, the Better Business Cases Foundation online course has been designed using the latest best practices in elearning.

Some competitors develop online learning cheaply by filming a trainer in a classroom. We don’t think that is a good way to help students learn, nor does it engage learners.

Our courses are highly interactive, and exercises have been designed to aid a deeper level of understanding, leading to longer-lasting learning.

We are confident that our elearning will help you gain an understanding of Better Business Cases that you can sit your Foundation exam with confidence.

Benefits of elearning

Online self-paced learning is ideal for busy people. Using self-paced online learning rather than attending classroom training there are some key benefits:

  • Saves you time – there’s no need to travel to a course venue or exam centre because you can take your Better Business Cases Foundation exam online.
  • Saves you money – the price of our Better Business Cases online Foundation course is very competitive and includes the exam so there are no extra costs.
  • Flexible schedule – you can study for your Better Business Cases Foundation where and when you want – you only need internet access.
  • Flexible delivery – you can study on any device – even on your mobile whilst on the move!
