Background

Technology is driven by TVET (Technical Vocational Education and Training), since TVET not only spawns technology by pull of demand and innovation, but also diffuses it by way of transfer of knowledge and skills. TVET sector prepares youth for specific trades, crafts and careers at different levels from a trade, a craft, technician, or a professional position in tourism, agriculture etc. The majority of vocations are typically based on manual or practical actions, traditionally non-academic, related to a specific trade, occupation, or, vacation.

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.

The 05 days online regional program is proposed to prepare the TVET system in the CPSC member countries to the changing landscape of TVET sector. This regional program aims to provide a detailed foundation on designing and developing an e-learning course for trainers and instructional designers who are new to e-learning design.
