What CE Server Does

Through years of experience delivering online insurance CE to students, we've learned the critical functions that our software must provide in order to deliver a complete solution to CE schools and to their students. These functions are

Online And Home Study Course Display And Enrollment

Each and every course offered for a state is displayed for the prospective student in an easy to understand format. All courses are presented in tabular fashion, subcategorized by the insurance line for which it has been approved. A separate table is presented for each insurance line to facilitate easy selection of courses.

Each course entry includes course name, state approved number, school course number, credit hours (including optional ethics hours required by some states), and pricing information. Clicking the course name causes a new pop-up window to be launched to present the course synopsis.

Students may enroll in either the online version of the course or the home study version where conventional hard copy books and tests are shipped to the student. CE Server permits different pricing for each version as well as discount packages.

Live Class Course Display And Enrollment

Enrollment in a school's live classes is handled similarly. The entire class schedule is displayed in an easy to understand tabular format. Tables are organized by city and location, then by date so students may easily locate classes that are convenient in terms of both location and schedule.

Each class listing includes course name, state approved number, school course number, credit hours (including optional ethics hours required by some states), and pricing information. Clicking the course name causes a new pop-up window to be launched to present the course synopsis.

Students enroll in live class courses via an easy to use "point and click" interface and pre-pay via the online credit card payment interface (see below).

Student Information Maintenance

All pertinent and required information about a student is recorded into the database. This information includes

  • Full student name and address information
  • Optional different student "ship to" address
  • Other student contact information including phone and email address
  • Student license information including renewal date and permission to remind the student of an upcoming renewal via email.
  • Student credit card information

Enrollment Administration

Each student's enrollment is carefully tracked and made available at any time. Each course enrollment is categorized into one of the following categories:

  • In Progress
  • Completed
  • Awaiting Certification
  • Certified

A student may check current and past enrollment information at any time via the Web.

Book Download Management

CE Server provides for the management of book downloads via a simple, easy to understand table of books that the student is permitted to download. Downloads may be accomplished immediately after course enrollment.

All books are delivered via the Internet in the Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF). Delivering books as PDF files has these advantages:

  • Books are read using Adobe's Acrobat Reader which comes pre-loaded on most PC's and is also available for free from Adobe.
  • PDF has become the de facto standard for Internet distribution of printed materials.
  • Files are very compact and are quickly downloaded.
  • Once downloaded, students may read the book off line, without an active Internet connection.
  • Portions of the book may be printed as desired by the student.

Online Testing

Students may take the test for any course in which they have enrolled at any time.

All tests are administered as multiple choice exams and are graded immediately upon completion. The number of exam questions and the passing percentage are configurable by the school.

Special attention has been paid to accommodate states with closed book testing procedures:

  • A student's test proctor may register at any time and affirmatively state at that time how he or she complies with the state proctor requirements.
  • The test proctor signs into the student's test session at the beginning and signs out again at the end to verify that the proctor remains in attendance throughout the test session.
  • A student's test grade is not displayed or recorded until after the test proctor has signed out.
  • Affidavit forms are printed at the conclusion of a passing test session along with instructions on how to fax it to the school.

Certification Requests

Students may request that a certificate of completion be issued for any successfully completed courses. CE Server presents a list of completed courses for the student to request certificates conveniently.

These requests are sent to the CE school via the Order Management subsystem (see below).

Credit Card Payment Interface

CE Server collects all fees through use of a real time credit card interface.

Funds are remitted directly into the CE school's bank account.

Order Management

The CE school is provided with a "back end" order management interface to receive and process incoming orders. Specific functions allow schools to

  • Receive and process incoming orders
  • Review and verify all online tests
  • Generate enrollment reports
  • Review revenue reports
  • Obtain current account information

Pricing Flexibility

To accommodate the deployment of your CE Library in a diverse set of environments, we allow for total flexibility in course pricing depending on the site to which it is delivered. See the section on How CE Server Is Used for more information on this topic.

Student Discount Packages

CE Server allows each school to establish pricing incentives for students to complete all of their CE with the school. Bundled pricing can be set up to sell blocks of hours of instruction at a promotional "bundled" price. Cross selling of live class courses and online or home study courses is supported.

Information Security

Internet users have become increasingly concerned about the security of their personal and financial information submitted online.

CE Server has been issued its own 128 bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) certificate, thereby offering the highest level of encryption or security possible. This means that students can rest assured that communications between their browser and CE Server are private and secure. All secure pages are conspicuously identified with this logo:
