As you know, Training and Assessment Strategies (TAS) outline how training and assessment is to be delivered and assessed. When it comes to facilitating e-learning, specific information relevant to this mode of delivery can be found in various sections of the TAS. Here’s where you would typically find such information:
- Delivery Mode:
- This section explicitly states the modes of delivery for the training, including face-to-face, online (e-learning), blended learning, or workplace-based training. It should detail how e-learning will be implemented, the platforms used, and the blend between online and other delivery modes.
- Resources Required for Delivery:
- Information about the technological resources and infrastructure needed for e-learning, such as Learning Management Systems (LMS), digital tools, software, and hardware requirements, would be outlined here.
- Learner Support Services:
- Details about support available for e-learners, including This section should also address how learners with special needs are supported in an online environment.
- Assessment Methods:
- This part of the TAS will specify how assessments are conducted in an e-learning context. It should cover the types of online assessments (like quizzes, assignments, online discussions, practical demonstrations via video, etc.), as well as the methods for ensuring the integrity and authenticity of online assessments.
- Strategies for Ensuring Quality and Compliance:
- Information on how the RTO ensures that the e-learning delivery meets regulatory standards and quality benchmarks. This may include details on regular reviews of the e-learning content, feedback mechanisms, and continuous improvement processes.
- Staff Qualifications and Professional Development:
- Details about the qualifications and expertise required for trainers and assessors delivering e-learning, as well as ongoing professional development activities to keep them updated with e-learning methodologies and technologies.
- Access and Equity Considerations:
- This section should address how the e-learning delivery considers and accommodates diverse learner groups, including strategies to ensure equitable access to learning resources and support.
- Technological Competence Requirements for Learners:
- Information on the digital literacy skills required for learners to successfully engage in e-learning, and any support or training provided to develop these skills.
- Communication Strategies:
- Details on how communication is facilitated in an e-learning environment, including interaction between learners and trainers, and among learners themselves.
By thoroughly detailing these aspects in the Training and Assessment Strategy, an RTO ensures that all facets of e-learning are considered, planned, and implemented effectively, meeting both educational and compliance needs
