Element K Introduces New Online Reference Product

Rochester, NY -- Element K®, a provider of e-Learning solutions and instructor-led courseware for technology and business skills, announced today the introduction of Articles, an online reference product covering Office Productivity applications, Design and Media, Networking, Operating Systems, and Programming and Web Development topics.
Given the addition of 4,700 online reference Article titles, Element K now offers over 5,400 online reference titles.
Articles will be of greatest benefit to those who have a working knowledge of a technology, and require task-specific information. Most Articles reference titles address a defined need or outcome, and are 4 to 6 pages in length. Further, new Articles content will be added monthly, assuring the most up-to-date information is available to Element K customers.
"For employees who need an immediate answer to a defined work problem, Articles is the perfect product. Concise, focused and aimed at providing a quick outcome, the product will help those who are on the front lines attempting to complete time-sensitive projects," remarked Doreen Bieryla, SVP and Publisher of Element K Journals. "Articles leverages the formal training already invested in the employee. It should be deeply considered by any company who has already invested in e-Learning."
Articles is the newest addition to Element K's growing reference library, and complements both Books 24x7 and Quick Reference Cards. Books 24x7 is an online reference product aimed at those who have completed formal learning and have a desire to learn even more about a specific tool or application. Quick Reference Cards are six-panel, tri-fold cards designed to answer the most sought-after questions within a subject area. The step-by-step instructions and desk drawer availability make Quick Reference Cards one of Element K's most popular products.
Articles are derived from the popular Element K Journals products.
