Educators are able to use electronic media and technologies for delivery of lessons in the classroom but often face challenges in delivery of online courses. Today, training organisations and educational institutions are implementing blended learning strategies, including technology-enabled learning with eLearning as the most common method.
While most educators may be familiar with teaching and facilitation of learning in the classroom, they will need different approaches, skills and knowledge to be effective in the eLearning environment.
Successful online learning also require the use of appropriate technologies, support mechanisms and knowledge of the tools available in their training environment, in addition to good e-facilitation skills that will provide an effective learning experience for their learners.
In this course, participants will be introduced to common eLearning tools and systems for online delivery, and use practical learning technologies and free tools to develop relevant e-learning activities for collaboration and facilitating learners outside the classroom.
At the end of the course, participants will be able to:
a) Develop an eLearning delivery plan to manage the eLearning activities and assessments
b) Guide and facilitate learners to ensure an effective learning experience
c) Monitor and document eLearner progress to ensure learning outcomes are achieved.
Trainers, adult educators, facilitators, teachers, lecturers, L&D consultants working in an eLearning environment.
