Aims of the days

  • To inspire participants. Day one should be packed with fun- to-do activities that provide a whistle stop tour of the possibilities offered by e-Learning.
  • To introduce participants to the wealth of resources available to them through NLMS and other repositories.

The overarching aim is to ensure that participants feel confident. It is not to build complex skills in specific programmes but to promote a can do attitude to e-Learning. The days should build on participants existing skills in Office suite along with simple to use technologies such as Wikis, Blogs, and Online survey software.

The course should offer a flavour of possibilities and prove that participants do not need to have high-level ICT skills to produce impressive interactive content that can enhance traditional learning methods.
