Lessons from Confucious
Capiro offers online training courses for business analysts.
You've probably heard the quote from the ancient Chinese philosopher, Confucius:
- I hear and I forget.
- I see and I remember.
- I do and I understand.
We've built our 'Guides to Success' e-learning courses for business analysts to allow you to hear, see and do.

Managing complexity in business analysis e-learning
Divide and rule
Our online business analysis training courses are divided into modules that cover the syllabus for the relevant BCS business analysis examination which makes them an excellent preparation for these qualifications.
Each module contains a number of lessons and lessons contain topics and quizzes. This means that you can break down your learning into bite size chunks. The following section describes the structure of a lesson and how it will help you to succeed.
Video is becoming increasingly popular in online training. That's because they can hold the learner's attention, providing interesting demonstrations of the material.
We use video mainly to provide a summary of the main points of a lesson before you get into the detail. You therefore start the more detailed section with a good grasp already in your head.
Where useful, there are animations to illustrate and explain particular aspects of the lesson.
Text with images
The text generally provides more than just a copy of the video narrative.
It can go into more detail where necessary and can cross-reference other lessons in order to show how topics are related.
The text is written in a style that supports scanning. This helps the reader to quickly read the text whilst having their eyes drawn to important words, phrases, and sentences.
The text might also include recommended additional reading and useful information that is not on the exam syllabus.
The video and text together make a great source for exam revision.
Online quizzes for business analysis e-learning
Quizzes check immediate understanding of the topics covered in the video and text. This helps the reader to memorise important topics that could appear as exam questions.
Every lesson has a quiz with a number of questions. You should repeat these questions until you get the correct answers instantly every time. If you think about it, there are only so many questions that the exam you take can draw from. This means that if you cover enough practice questions you will dramatically increase your chances not just of passing this exam but passing well.
In addition, there is a timed practice exam in the style of the actual exam.
Additional practice to succeed with business analysis e-learning
Some lessons include the following practice sessions.
Practical exercises are based on a case study that contains a detailed scenario.
Case study questions will require you to create something, not just answer a multi choice question.
This will develop your understanding of particular topics and help you to apply what you have learned to work situations.
Although case study questions are not in the multi-choice style exam format, the extra knowledge you gain from doing them will help you to answer exam questions.
An advantage of a business analysis e-learning course is that it can include interactive exercises. The benefit of this is that it draws in the learning, getting them more involved and increasing their ability to recall the material.
Interactive exercises involve you directly in taking actions to enhance your e-learning experience.
They employ a number of techniques that allow you to participate both physically and mentally in e-learning situations.
A self study approach to training
Our approach is to offer a guided self study approach to learning and obtaining business analysis qualifications. Everyone who takes our courses is encouraged to contact us to get one on one support and advice. We can do this with messages, phone calls or Zoom meetings, as suits the need of a particular client.
