Background and Focus

Internet based learning or e-learning in TVET has become current trend and requirement of future needs of industry due to disruption of industrial revolution 4.0. Specifically, e-learning is the term broadly used to describe “instructional content or learning experience delivered or enabled by electronic technologies”. E-learning provides a flexible system of information dissemination which is not confined to only regular day time activities but can also take place in a variety of locations including homes, schools, libraries internet cafes and open fields. With e-learning, the TVET instructors will be able to reach learners in different set-ups using the available diverse ICT resource to meet the learners’ needs.

In April 2020, a rapid assessment survey conducted by the ILO-UNESCO-WBG on TVET and described the current state of TVET during COVID-19 period. In this report, current TVET trends highlighted and stated that the TVET sector should have 4E (E-Content, E-Learning, Education Technology and Entrepreneurship).

The report also highlighted the gaps in TVET during the current situation. The one of the gaps is to provide continuous training to TVET teachers to facilitate the development and delivery of their online session. It is also emphasized that TVET has to empower teachers to develop their own e-Learning programs.

In this context, Colombo Plan Staff College is planning to organize a webinar on “Development online Teaching and Learning Resources using ICT”. This webinar will be dedicated to CPSC member countries TVET practitioners to build the capacity on how to develop a mobile app for a TVET institute. The main purpose of this webinar is to share simple steps to develop a mobile app for Teaching & Learning activities. The practical mobile application is the best tool to build native mobile apps for Android without programming skills. After completion of this webinar, the participants are able to create their own apps easily. The outcome will be aligned different interpretations and expectations of digital innovation concept from the various stakeholders’ perspectives.
