CPA Crossings Introduces Tablet-Based Learning Model for CPAs

Innovative tablet courseware brings CPE learning into the 21st Century

ROCHESTER, MI – August 9, 2011 – CPA Crossings, a leading strategic technology solutions education and consulting firm for CPAs, today announced the launch of its new paperless tablet-based learning model utilizing the popular Apple iPad. The firm’s new tablet-supported CPE series eliminates the need for paper manuals and enriches the learning experience by offering interactive graphics, polling, and annotation tools via electronic courseware.

“Our goal was to take CPE into the 21st Century,” stated John Higgins, CPA.CITP, strategic advisor at CPA Crossings. “It’s difficult to fully engage attendees for hours at a time. Our new learning model is far more dynamic and interactive than traditional classroom methods. We designed ourtablet-based courses to keep learners involved in the material by integrating such elements as polling questions, vivid color graphics, and multiple touch screen annotation tools.”

With the profession’s strong emphasis on paperless workflow processes, CPA Crossings also wanted to provide courses that eliminated paper-heavy manuals.

“Accountants don’t want any more paper to clutter up their offices, which is a key reason we developed our e-tablet model. All course materials are loaded onto a tablet, and advanced annotation tools allow learners to take notes and complete activities right on the device. At course completion, weemail each participant a copy of their individual course work complete withannotations,” explained Higgins.

For 2011, CPA Crossings’ two most popular onsite seminars were launched under the new tablet model—CPA Technology Boot Camp and Outlook, Word, Excel & Adobe Tips, Tricks & Techniques. CPA Crossings supplies tablet devices to session participants and offers full logistics support including shipping, set up, courseware installation, and electronic delivery of post-seminar course materials.
