Implementing e-Learning and Blended Learning
The integration of e-learning and blended learning within the context of higher education require much more than just technology being acquired; it needs a clear vision and strategy from the top which is aligned with the overall institutional purpose. Institutions should be clear about the purpose and anticipated outcomes they expect from engaging in such an initiative. Key consideration to aspects related to technology constraints/opportunities, resourcing, recognition and general organizational readiness need to be considered. Very often the development of a strategic plan for technology integration is one thing and its successful implementation is another. Aspects related to change management will also be considered as part of the strategy development as well as a clear plan for building capacity.
This three day program aims at exposing participants to the key considerations that must be taken into account for implementing e-learning, participants will through a set of activities engage in assessing their current readiness, benchmark their organizational capabilities and articulate a strategy to move forward. Issues and challenges associated with e-learning and aspects of ROIs will also be addressed.
The program will also present a range of best practices for successful eLearning / blended learning Implementation in higher education.
This program is addressed towards senior administrators considering implementing blended and/ or e-learning and those members of the institutions that will be involved with leading the initiative.
