E-learning Organistional Capability Checklist E-learning Organistional Capability Checklist Document Transcript

  • The E-capability Checklist for RTOs What is e-capability? This checklist has been developed by LearnWorks to help training organisations implement or extend e-learning in their business. It draws on research and consultancy work from 2004 to 2010. The checklist identifies four main areas of capability which all appear to be necessary for organisations to implement e-learning effectively over time. Getting a balance between them probably has a lot to do with achieving the magic goal of sustainability – that is, integrating e-learning into the business so it’s just part of how you operate. Capability areas for e-learning Using the checklist Although it has grounding in recent research, the list is a work in progress. We’d like to shake it around and see what’s missing, find out how well it works, toss up ideas about how you’d use it. Some of the language won’t fit the size or culture of you organisation. Just boss it around and make it work for you – whether, for example, you call the head honcho the director, the principal, the chief executive officer, the owner, the manager, or something else. In smaller RTOs one person may have several roles or “positions” and so on. What to do now: Use it try it out at your place Give feedback hop onto the Forum at http://ecapability.com.au/ and tell other what you found out Help improve the checklist additions, corrections, critiques: post your ideas and suggestions Clint Smith LearnWorks learnwks@bigpond.net.au 0410 569 386 at the E-learning Capability Forum http://ecapability.com.au/ 1
