e-Learning Opportunities

e-Learning at Kollmorgen covers a wide range of "e" - That is "electronic" means to deliver learning, whether it is a self paced course, short video lesson, a blended course (instructor monitored/on-line), or simply a library of knowledge you can explore.  By providing a variety of learning options, you can choose which style fits both your learning style and your schedule best. Consider these options as you determine your training needs. Kollmorgen frequently utilizes social media feeds on a variety of topics through our Social Focus Weeks - we pick a topic for the week and post interesting information, articles, and even a few questions on the topic to challenge you.  Past topics include inertia, compliance, feedback devices, application sizing - so follow us on our social media feeds and join in the discussion! 

On-line Courses: 

 

Kollmorgen has been developing on-line courses for a number of years to deliver to our internal team and channel partners. We are now bringing this style of learning to our customers as well starting with one of our programming courses: AKD BASIC. This online module, intended for those who are using the AKD BASIC drive, leads you through a series of exercises that help acquaint you to the programming environment. This course culminates in a review of a "keystone" program based on a project of your choice.  List Price for this on-line course is $300.

Video Series:

Two Minutes of Motion Series – This series, hosted by Gordon Ritchie is designed to be a single topic, informative training session – a quick “How To” that you can take in within a short 2 minutes.  The focus on these sessions has been on both AKD BASIC and the AKD base units, but also covers many aspects of motions control, including feedback devices, servo loops, and other related topics.  Our current list includes:
