In this first webinar from eCom our Learning Consultants, Susan Gearing and Bryan Eldridge discuss how workforce solutions can help organisations drive success. Using eCom’s Tri-fold model they highlight the key factors of successful implementations.
With the continued growth of online learning has come an increased focus on online training and assessment.
Accessibility in eLearning is a hot topic here at eCom HQ and, with our recent work with our client the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB), we have evolved our knowledge and understanding of web accessibility. At eCom, we strive to ensure our eLearning meets the current Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). At a time when more and more businesses and organisations are looking to take their training online, it is essential that we consider the needs of learners with disabilities and that we do not discriminate in any way.
I’ve worked on many competency projects over the years. I first came across competences in the early 1990’s working for a Further Education college. At that time they were a paper based, bureaucratic nightmare that required fully qualified assessors and lever-arch binders as portfolios of evidence. Assessing a number of students required regular visits and lots of space to review the paper based evidence. Yet the process was still beneficial. There was something to measure progress against and review year on year. The competences were the building blocks of the curriculum and enabled students and lecturers across Further Education to understand achievements and have common ground.
