About Course

This unit focuses on the comprehensive process of designing and developing e-learning resources for both synchronous and asynchronous learning environments. Initially, it involves identifying the purpose, target group, and mode of delivery for the e-learning resources, along with analysing the characteristics and foundational skill requirements of the target group. This stage also entails accessing and analysing nationally recognised training products to align with skill and knowledge requirements, and understanding organisational procedures for e-learning resource development.

The planning phase is crucial, involving the assessment of personal skills and knowledge gaps in subject matter, industry relevance, and currency. This phase outlines the steps and timeframes for e-learning resource development, ensuring the plan is thoroughly documented and confirmed. The design phase then takes over, where various traditional and digital methods are explored to create engaging visual learning opportunities. Skills and knowledge are broken down into manageable sessions, with a focus on learner progression. The design approach is documented and confirmed, ensuring alignment with the purpose, target group, and delivery mode.

The development phase involves creating interactive media components, content shells, and activities to engage and support learners, incorporating tools for asynchronous learning and developing content for training VET teachers, trainers, and assessors. Trial and feedback stages are crucial for refining the resources, ensuring industry relevance, clarity, compliance with legislative requirements, and accuracy in content and formatting. Finally, the process concludes with a thorough review of the e-learning resource development, focusing on identifying areas for improvement in both the process and personal practice in developing these resources.

Preparing to design a strategy for training and assessment
In the initial phase of training and assessment development, it is essential to establish clear objectives by consulting with relevant stakeholders (1.1). This involves identifying and documenting the specific characteristics of the target group, including their foundation skills and learning needs. Additionally, engaging with stakeholders to understand industry requirements is crucial. To meet the intended goals, one must carefully access, analyse, and select nationally recognised training products while ensuring alignment with the purpose and target group through consultation and confirmation.

Designing and developing a training strategy
In the second phase of training and assessment development, it's crucial to analyse selected nationally recognised training products to identify required skills and knowledge. Explore various options for designing a training strategy aligned with the purpose, target group, industry requirements, learning environment, training products, and provider. Determine the mode of delivery, entry requirements, and additional criteria. Estimate training duration, schedule sessions, and ensure comprehensive learning resources. Lastly, identify and confirm the availability of human and physical resources for training.

Designing and developing an assessment strategy
In the third phase of training and assessment development, a systematic approach is vital. Begin by analyzing the selected nationally recognized training products to pinpoint assessment requirements relevant to the assessment strategy design. Document various options for assessment strategy design that consider the training products, target group, industry requirements, assessment environment, and training provider. Identify and document the assessment methods to be used, estimate the time needed for assessment tasks, and integrate the assessment timing into the training schedule. Additionally, identify and document any necessary adjustments to assessments based on the characteristics of the target group. Ensure full coverage of unit competency requirements by identifying and documenting the assessment tools required. Finally, identify and confirm the availability of human and physical resources necessary for the assessment process.

Finalising a TAS
In the final phase of training and assessment development, collaborate with stakeholders to evaluate the strategy for training and assessment. Act upon the evaluation outcomes and thoroughly document any modifications made to the strategy, ensuring transparency and accountability. Confirm the finalised strategy, meticulously aligning it with legislative, regulatory, and organisational requirements to ensure compliance and effectiveness. This comprehensive approach ensures that the strategy is refined and optimised to meet the intended goals while adhering to all necessary standards and regulations.
