Provides an enhanced learning experience with increased accessibility and usability for students
BETHESDA, MD., September 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — SANS Institute, the global leader in cybersecurity training and certification, today announced the launch of its updated OnDemand platform. SANS used direct student and customer feedback to shape the all-new OnDemand experience that includes enhanced features to help students do better. This release follows SANS’ 15th anniversary of SANS OnDemand, which has provided online learning to over 100,000 students worldwide.
“With an ever-changing cyber landscape, increasingly tight budgets and rising travel costs, more and more companies are turning to SANS OnDemand to help them secure their organization with the best return on investment. “, said Andre Williams, Director of Digital at the SANS Institute. “SANS has pioneered online education, delivering exceptional learning outcomes for students and a better security posture for organizations around the world.”
The new OnDemand experience was designed from the ground up with accessibility and usability in mind. Students can still practice on their own schedule, now in a state-of-the-art, easy-to-use on-demand interface created to maximize their learning experience. New features include an updated video player, refreshed sidebar with maps, course books, notes, improved search, and new bookmarking features. They can also complete their training on the go with easy access to course content available online or offline with the SANS OnDemand mobile app. Help and support are even easier to find, including the ability to live chat or ask questions with a GIAC-certified subject matter expert.
“I was a mother of a one year old child and I was working full time as a physiotherapist when I joined the SANS WiCyS (Women in Cybersecurity) Academy. The key to my success and the success of the courses was the flexibility that SANS OnDemand offered. I used the mobile app to play the lectures in my car and then replay them if there was anything I didn’t understand,” said Christine MorencySANS graduate “I listened on the go, to and from daycare, the supermarket and work – wherever I went, SANS OnDemand was with me. I was able to use my time at home to read, highlight, indexing, and labs. That’s what made SANS work for me, and I couldn’t be happier after landing my current job as a cloud security engineer!”
SANS OnDemand offers convenient and flexible online cybersecurity training anytime, anywhere. With cyberattacks on the rise, there’s never been a better time to grow an organization’s workforce with courses created and taught by world-renowned experts and designed to develop cybersecurity skills in the real world. Students have praised the SANS OnDemand training as top-notch, with an exceptional training experience that offers traceable progress and achievement milestones.
