DIDL Programs


DIDL programs consists of a manual (printed or online), multi-sensory, multi-media video tutorials, and online certification testing. There are also practice tests and tasks to help you master the material. DIDL targets the skills workers will most need across industries and can use immediately.


DIDL curriculum is a web based application that can be easily deployed across institutional sponsors and disparate geographies (including home based resources).

 Mastery Learning

Students prove their ability rather than test to objectives in a real, not simulated environment. Results validate and document real skills, so students can’t fail, only improve.

 Aligned with Standards

The curriculum is aligned with Texas Technology Application Standards for all beginning teachers.

 Cost Effective

DIDL Curriculum does not require dedicated PC assets or applications – learners use their own environment. Minimal or no instructional resources are required to support it.

  • Study

    Learning is supported by clearly defined skill expectations and step-by-step tutorials developing competency. More advanced students can pick and choose tutorials or go directly to the certification testing.


    Multiple practice exercises and tasks are provided so that students have extensive practice creating actual products with their own software before certification testing takes place.


    The power of DIDL Curriculum is enhanced by providing connections in the learning between concepts in each of the sections. These common strands promote problem solving capabilities.


    Students can “do over” both multiple choice tests on terminology and practical performance tasks until they are successful. Performance tasks are real products, not simulated as in the vast majority of online testing and learning software

    • Targets the skills the worker will need & can use across industries
    • Handles large populations with highly variable levels of skills
    • Certification is based on actual tasks in the user’s environment
    • Results validate and document real skills, not ability to answer multiple choice questions
    • Largely self-directed and self-administered by the learner
    • Provides a certification once mastery is achieved
    • If help is needed, testing points them to tutorials
