No collaboration – content only – ‘step through’ – for information recall onlyRequires high level of student self-motivation as it is learner-led. Can you think of any examples? [corporate/compulsory staff training]
Similar to old ‘distance education’, but using an LMS instead of learning materials in envelopes.Might have some F2F but the emphasis is on learning from a distance.Requires high level of self-motivation from students as learners work through it…albeit with time-lines.Can you think of any examples? [Higher Ed/distance Uni courses, management upskilling]
This is close to class-room delivery in that it is live, synchronous and immediate. Teacher-led…learners just need to ‘turn up’. Can be recorded.Can you think of any examples? [Centra, webinars that I organise]
This is probably the most common model, as it describes a ‘one stop shop’ where students access their study, whether they are on-campus or distance.More F2F than would be in the Supported Distance model…the Virtual Campus is the ‘back-up’ and is not THE study location. Moodle is an example of a platform (but if the Moodle is just filled with resources, then it isn’t a Virtual Campus…it’s just a resource holder). Can you think of any examples? [Some Moodle courses]
THE most common model for VET….a blend of all!Can you think of any examples?
The drivers are different here…all about variety, motivation and engagement! Usually teacher-led, but the more student involvement there is, the more engagement and motivation.Can you think of any examples? [Skype for support, Blogs, Wikis, video assessment etc]
A story…..This is Neil. Neil Kosh is the owner of KOBAK down at Flagstaff Hill, and he has owned the company for 20 years. But he was ready to close his doors 18 months ago. The new WHS laws were approaching and with the world changing, Neil was sure that he would not be able to change his old way of doing things. Neil and his staff said that they can't use technology and they did not want to. He had a very negative attitude to technology.The light switch moment came when when it was pointed out to Neil that he could programme every GPS plot there is in Saint Vincent's gulf into his fish finder....so he actually was comfortable with technology! So Neil bought all his employees an iPad, which they now use for most of their paperwork, ranging from photographic evidence to voice recordings for JSA reports, Today, 18 months later, KOBAC is working at full capacity with technology assisting their workforce, and the company has a very bright future ahead.

But what is more common…is blended learning using a combination of classroom/workshop, workplace and online spaces eg a Moodle (often backed up with webinars for support and/or scheduled lectures.

What is E-learning?E-learning...includes all forms of electronically supportedlearning and teaching...E-learning often involves both out-of-classroom and in-classroom educational experiences viatechnology applications and processes such as web-basedlearning, computer-based learning, virtual educationopportunities and digital collaboration…It can be self-paced orinstructor-led and includes media in the form oftext, image, animation, streaming video and audio.

Students want e-learning. Accordingto the results of the 2011 nationalBenchmarking Survey of VETstudents….• 90% would like at least a little e- learning in their course• 26% want a lot of e-learning Source: http://e-learningindicators.flexiblelearning.net.au/survey_results_all.htm

“There are many opportunities for e-learning e.g. an apprentice electrician needs to understand Ohms law - perfect for e-learning. [There are] many very "dry" topics that would be best served delivered in a smart interactive e- learning presentation." Jim Munro, Director,ABSC Grouphttp://www.linkedin.com/groups/Elearning-Conversations-4543260/about
"When I am convinced that the only way toproperly assess a particular skill is in the workplace and/or through practical demonstration ... Iusually organise a way to watch the personperform the skill.This may be through the person video recordingthemselves, or by live link-up through Skype, ormy personal favourite, live to a group via awebinar." John Radvan, WEA Hunter
“Trades students love technology if they can seea reason for its use. Let them find, play andlearn with automotive, construction, engineeringand volumetric apps!" Tracie Regan, Wide Bay Institute of TAFE
“One reason apprentices became Diesel mechanics wasthey "Were no good with electrical stuff". Teaching thesubject was hard work...Even with the bestlecturers, 10% of the students had to do re-sits oradditional studies because they did not finish their work.I also taught the subject using the support of thecomputers. The result was...- No students needing re-sits- Students finishing in less than 4 days (normally 5 daystudy)- Less teaching and less stress (allowing time to bespent with students who were struggling).” Jim Kesting (previously Heavy Vehicles, TAFE SA)
Kobak Pty Ltd, Flagstaff Hill SAKobak Pty Ltd….is using iPads for WHSrequirements includingcompleting reports verballyand taking photos forevidence of compliancy.
TAFE NSW Riverina Institute….repackaged 3 existing units of competenceundertaken by their Electrotechnologystudents.They were developed in Moodle using a variety of e-learning strategies eg:Power points, screen grabs, quizzes, videos, You-tube and other tools toenhance the learning experiences of students. http://accesstoskills.wikispaces.com/AS046
SA Plant Operator Training – Lonsdale, SA….adapted their Forklift delivery training intomobile learning for marginalised anddisengaged learners. They developed a ‘Forklift Pre-op procedure’ resource which could be viewed on a mobile phone. They also used QR codes to create a ‘learning trail’ over a real forklift. http://sapot.wwdad.com/moodle/course/view.php?id=27 http://pre2012.flexiblelearning.net.au/content/forklifts-getting-mobile
MITAC - Major Industries Training Advisory Council ….successfully built an iPhone App for eProfiling.This app allows students to log their weekly cards without having access to acomputer improving the regularity with which they log their information. This alsoallows the RTO and Employer to more accurately track the progress of theapprentice, potentially leading to more timely completion of the apprenticeship. http://accesstoskills.wikispaces.com/AS046
TAFE NSW North Coast / Essential Energy ….developed an online learning tool comprising the 5 stages applicants may need to progress through to obtain an apprenticeship with an Energy Provider in Australia.They trialled a variety of technologies to provide remote facilitation and ongoingtutorial support, and customise existing employability skills and underpinningnumeracy skills resources for the industry.
