The on-line training or eLearning done by Jaitek has some principal characteristics, besides the most habitual actually, that is the training costs. With eLearning we can reduce the costs of the training proccesses, principally when them implicate the travelling of a number of people.
With on-line training, we can enjoy what we call AAA:
If we do a correct instructional design of the course, we will be secured that the objective of the course is the learning, and not only the content. This last situation is what happens when is the expert in the contents who designs the course, because habitually all is very important, and the courses end getting converted into a saturation of contents, normally in PDF documents. The instructional design is done by a learning expert who will keep in mind objectives that consider how will we learn. That is how more effective courses are done from the learning perspective.
The online training processes carry with them the use of different platforms or technologic tools. If we use Moodle as a platform by our own or 4eClass as a shared platform, we need to get secured that the platform is working perfectly, and have the security that the problems that can be generated will be resolved. Also, in the actual courses are getting combined 2.0 web tools and videoconference tools. And the interactions between all of them can be a failure reason of our courses if we do not have the appropiate technical support service.
Tutoring and Mentoring
Finally, the teacher presence on the on-line training processes is fundamental for get us secured of the success of the action. A proper tutellation, that can be done on two levels: of contents or of dynamization and motivation, that can make a big difference. It is true that this can mean an extra charge to the on-line course, because it suposse the dedication of experts. But this is a cost that always we need to considerate, because it can make a big difference in the results.
