What Does e-Learning Mean To You?

Risio

November 1, 2021

E-learning can mean many different things to many different people! At Risio Institute, we designed our Dental Assistant Distance Delivery Diploma Program to be primarily online. We deliver e-learning modules created in-house, by our talented Casey Sharp, that we house on our Absorb LMS (Learning Management System) platform.

When creating this dental assisting program, it was important for us to find a robust LMS to house our e-learning modules. We wanted something robust, fast and efficient for our students to be able to access effortlessly. After many trials of various platforms, we chose Absorb, which is a Calgary-based company! How fitting that Risio Institute was founded in Calgary, as well!

Risio Institute offers a variety of content for the students on the Absorb LMS to suit various different learning styles. We recognize that all students learn differently, so it is important for us to ensure that our students find their niche in the program. All theory modules are delivered online prior to students attending their clinical modules in Calgary at Risio Institute. We host one 12-day clinical module at the end of Term 1, and one 9-day module at the end of Term 2! We are confident that our program is created to help YOU succeed!

Many of our students have been in the dental industry for years and are now making their way back to school to become certified/registered in the profession they love!

What Makes Risio Institute Different?

Risio Institute’s Dental Assistant Distance Delivery Program was created from an educational model called ‘Work-Integrated Learning’. We wanted to ensure that our learners were immersed in the dental office setting, learning everything they possible could about the dynamics of dentistry. With that as our foundation, we built the program to work around the busy schedule of a dental office, and the busy schedule of a working student.

What Does Going Back to School Mean to You?

Going back to school often means sacrificing some of the things we love to gain an education. What if you could go back to school without having to sacrifice the things you love? When we brainstormed our idea for this program, our vision was to offer access to education to everyone across Canada. We stayed true to our vision as we created our Dental Assistant Distance Delivery Program, allowing our students to maintain their employment in a dental office they love, while staying close to their family and friends!
