Regional Capacity Building for e-Learning
The programme consists of three component:
1. E-Skills Training: Modularized training courses for employees and decision makers from educational and vocational institutions. The content is about: E-learning strategy & management, course development and implementation, instructional design and interactivity, E-learning technologies, and support & tutoring of virtual communities.
2. E-Institution Building: The individual training approach is closely related to institution building. GIZ always encourages and supports efforts within the institutional context of the trainees to disseminate their skills, and establish (locally, nationally, regionally) E-learning competence centres.
3. E-Network Building: Until now, GIZ has actively initiated and supported Communities of Practice and networks in the field of E-learning in the SADC, EAC, Latin America, Southeast Asia, Central Asia, and the Caucasus. An outstanding initiative from GIZ and others is Open ECBCheck (www.ecb-check.org). It is a new accreditation and quality improvement scheme for E-Learning programmes and institutions in international Capacity Development. It supports capacity building organisations to measure how successful their e-learning programmes are and allows for continuous improvement though peer collaboration and benchlearning.
