Chicago, Feb. 15, 2011 - A new array of delivery options for its many course offerings- ranging from traditional classroom to the latest self-paced learning formats available 24/7 - is being rolled out by the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM), a leading provider of professional development resources to real estate management professionals around the globe.

“Our newly upgraded education program, which we call ‘IREM ED,’ recognizes changing life styles that in turn are changing how people can and want to learn,” said IREM President Ronald L. Goss, CPM. “IREM ED presents wide choices of what content students can study, the time schedule they prefer to access that content, and the information channels through which they’ll get it. It’s all about empowering students to progress with more flexibility in their property management careers by tapping into the contemporary knowledge delivery media that are most compatible with their life styles, that best address their career opportunities, that make the most of their time availabilities, and that most easily match their learning-style preferences. Indeed, we view IREM ED as a significant step forward in maintaining IREM’s reputation as the “gold standard” in real estate management education,” covering the core competencies for maximum performance of investment real estate,” said Goss.

CUSTOMIZE TO LIFE-AND-LEARNING-STYLE PREFERENCES
IREM ED was designed for access through laptops, e-readers, iPads and mobile phones. So students can learn at home, at work or while commuting or traveling. They can study at their own pace within generous time frames. They can study via instructor-led classrooms or instructor-led online courses as well as in self-paced home study or self-paced multimedia select course settings. They also can participate 24/7 in a community forum tied to each course and be further engaged by course content that has been enhanced with embedded video, more dynamic PowerPoint presentations, and other contemporary, visually compelling instructional material.
