  • START RECORD – MIC ON – SCREEN SHOWINGIntroduce yourself– in relation to your role with the National VET ElearningstrageyWarn about ‘dropping out’Encourage questions via the Text Chatand putting up your hand
  • Raise your hand if you think taking your training online important?Discuss with the group:Ask everyone to write in the Question box “Why is taking your training online important?”Ask some of those who put their hand up to take the mic and explain “Why important?”
  • For both the learner and their employers, online training offers: - More flexibility - about when and where training takes places - Reduced cost - of travel or the need to take time away from work - Increased motivation - through interactive and collaborative learning experiences - Better retention - by being able to revisit resources and recorded sessions - Personalised learning - through just-in-time and self-paced/customised training - Improved employability - through increased information technology and digital literacy skills - Repeat-ability – learners can go over or listen to information until they understand it
  • For training organisations, online training offers: - Expanded markets - through the opportunity to offer training to people outside of your local population - Better customer service - as the tools allow the trainer to better monitor the progress of their learners and offer more regular feedback and support - Compliance solutions - as some of the tools are able to systematically track and report on learners' progress - Wider recruitment of staff - by being able to employ trainers from any location - Sustainable practices - through reduces printing and travel costs
  • Discuss with the group:“Why is now a good time to take your training online?”
  • We are seeing more and more people turning to the web to study.Online education are among the top five industries predicted to grow by around 10% both in 2012 and 2013, and beyond.
  • Comparing what f2f to taking your training online.
  • Online training can take many forms, offering training organisations the opportunity to find the right type of online training for their clients' training needs. Generally speaking, there are two types of online training: - Asynchronous http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asynchronous and - Synchronous http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synchronous.Asynchronous online training is when the trainer and learner are not communicating or interacting at the same time. For example: in self-paced online training courses, learners work through their course work and activities at a time and place which suits them. Their trainer can then access the learner's work at anytime and from anywhere, regardless of when the learner has undertaken their training.This type of online training works well for workplace training requirements and staff inductions, and usually includes interactive activities such as online quizzes http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Online_quiz, discussion forums http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_forum (also known as an internet forum or message board) or webquests http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WebQuest to ensure the learner is still engaged with the learning materials.Synchronous online training offers a different learning experience, as it allows the learner, their peers and the trainer to all interact at the same time through tools like: online classrooms, online text chat http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Online_chat and web conferencing http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_conferencing.
  • Types of Asynchronous online trainingSelf-paced learning – Structured course which requires the learner to only interactive with the content and activities, and doesn’t require the learner to interact with othersFacilitated/Blended Course – learners assess resources and instructions online – usually in an LMS Online Groups – learners interact with one another and the trainer through a series of posts on a discussion forum or groupWebquests – learners are given some content and then directed to find other information on the web Scenarios – learners are given a ‘role’ to play in a scenario involving others – using in an LMS and/or discussion forum/groupBlogs – learners access or present their information in a sequential wayWikis – learners work with others to create a collaborative resource or sitsSynchronous online trainingOnline classrooms – such as the one where the webinar is being hosted – allows live discussion through audio and text chat and interactive activities through a whiteboard and/or poll. Other applications and the web can be shared through ‘screen sharing’Web-conferencing – learners engage with others through video, audio and textText chats/Instant Messaging – learners communicate through text eg Skype, Chat rooms Collaborative documents - where learners can be working on/viewing the same document at the same time eg Google Docs/Drive

  • Whichever type of online training you use, you will need some 'tools' to help you with the development, assessment and management of the learners and/or the content such as : learning management systems – “software application for the administration, documentation, tracking, reporting and delivery of online education courses or training programs” - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Learning_management_system, learning content management systems – “allows publishing, editing, and modifying content as well as site maintenance from a central page. It provides a collection of procedures used to manage workflow in a collaborative environment” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Content_management_system, Eportfolios – “a collection of electronic evidence assembled and managed by a user, usually on the Web. Such electronic evidence may include inputted text, electronic files, images, multimedia, blog entries, and hyperlinks.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_portfolioOnline training room – allows for the delivery of real-time content or interactive activities or web-safari’s or desk-top sharingMore and more online training is happening on mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets, which is called mobile learning, so ensure that the online training tool(s) works well on these devices.Keep in mind that there is no right way or uniform way for online training. It will depend on your learners, their needs and the capability of your organisation and its online training systems.
  • Challenges of taking your training online:As you can see online training offers many benefits, but what's the catch? When considering taking your training online, it is important that you also aware of the challenges and barriers, including: - Upfront and ongoing costs - online training requires the investment in tools/systems and the development or redevelopment of resources - Technical support for both trainers and learners will also be required - Key skills - online training requires that both the trainer and the learners have a certain level of ICT and digital literacy skills - and even if they do have these skill, it is important to offer new users induction/orientation support - Staged implementation - an online training implementation needs to be research and trialled before wide scale implementation can occur, which may require a business case to be written - Infrastructure - both trainers and learners will need to have access the hardware/devices to facilitate/undertake online training and some forms of online training will need connectivity to the internet - Interoperability - the integration of some online training tools with existing organisational systems may be tricky - Accessibility - content and some online training tools will need to be web-accessible by learners with special needs, eg sight impairment, and may require additional support and software - Privacy and Ownership - considerations for managing user logins and passwords, and their privacy and intellectual property is important, including ensuring that the consent of minors and/or the storage/sharing of photos or video of others online is gained - Distractions, distractions, distraction - online training can generates a lot of information through the ease of sharing and distributing information, making staying on task and not being able to 'multi-task' will be a challenge for some, as will dealing with information overload or 'white noise'.As you can see, like any new idea or concept, incorporating online training into your training organisation requires a well thought out and researched process.
  • Getting started or improving/increasing your online trainingtakes time.Using an appreciative inquiry approach of discover, dream, design and destiny is a process to support you.
  • Discover:Where you can to get support (Marlene / National VET E-learning Strategy), and learn from those who have gone down the path before youWhich model/s of online training will fit best for your own context by becoming familiar with different 'models' of online training What are the most appropriate tools (platforms and software) to suit your model of online training
  • Dream:will you 'go it alone' or work with a (perhaps more experienced) partner?will a 'quick-fix' do, or is your intent to build your organisations 'e-capability' for the longer term? will you use 'off-the-shelf' content or build it yourself? will you up-skill your training staff to be able to teach online or will you bring an experienced online trainer?
  • Design:Develop a plan which outlines the why, what, who, where, when, Get key stakeholder input, including the learnersBuild in how you are going to measure the success (or otherwise) of taking your training onlineHave a communication strategy to share the ‘good news’ stories Ensure success and sustainability by keeping an eye on the 'e-maturity' of your organisation
  • Destiny:Begin with a small pilot to 'test the waters‘Ensure it’s with a brand new group of learners who don’t know ‘the old way’Evaluate the process, and learn from the outcomes (Action learning cycle) – Problem>Act>Evaluate>Review
