Home > The Semizone Advantage > Online University Service
Semizone provides its corporate clients with turnkey solutions for customized online universities. The service includes the integration of course content, delivery, and learning management system. Customized course content is generated by combining courses from Semizone's existing library of over 1000 lectures modules with material that is specifically produced for the client. The courses will be integrated into a dedicated web site that will be custom developed based on Semizone's proven Learning Management System. On-going maintenance of the web site as well as the course content will be an integral part of the online university service.
