Partnering for capability
The National VET E-learning Strategy for 2012–2015 has the primary objective of developing the Australian training system ’s capacity to capitalise on the roll-out of the National Broadband Network (NBN).
Strategically utilised, the new technological environment will provide unprecedented opportunities to extend the reach, effectiveness and customised nature of training, and significantly impact achievement of government objectives for a more inclusive and better qualified workforce.
This strategy seeks to build the capability of RTOs, industry and community stakeholders to create more accessible training options and facilitate new ways of learning through technology, while stimulating new ventures in e-learning to support individual participation in training and employment, and the alignment of workforce skill levels with economic needs.
The group that met yesterday to review the NT strategy in relation to E-learning highlighted the essential role of people and relationships in the successful E-learning. The importance of relationships and the development of educational processes that inspire students and provide them with the motivation and opportunity to fully engage in a lifelong learning experience.
The group has suggested we transform the E-learning concept to mE-learning, a concept that adds the personal factor into the learning equation and emphasises the essential role of people in the E-learning process.
It also adds the extra dimensions of mlearning with mobile devices with the multisectored multisolution nature of the approach with a strong integration of multi media to this me driven approach.
The history of the territory has been all about overcoming the issues of distance and service delivery and we think there is a new era dawning where mE-learning can underpin a new way forward.
Delivering on life based goals and objectives and on work based goals and employability in new ways to the place and time most suited to you, or me depending on your perspective!
