TAEDEL501A Facilitate E-Learning Unit @ CTE City Campus
Aug 3 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Doing Facilitate E-Learning … has made me more confident in my ability to incorporate wikis, blogs and other online learning tools into my learning programs. The facilitators were friendly, helpful and professional, and the course, being fully-online, was easy to fit around my full-time work schedule. I would recommend Facilitate E-Learning to anyone in a training role looking to enhance their e-learning skills.” Matt, Navitas

The delivery of the unit has been designed to assist trainers, facilitators or teachers to support learners effectively in an online learning environment. The unit is an elective in TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, TAE50111 Diploma of Vocational Education and Training and TAE50211 Diploma of Training Design and Development.

These sessions will include a degree of technical support. The focus of the course is however mostly on e-learning facilitation concepts and skills (not technical). Therefore, you should ideally have priority access to support and mentorship from LMS administrators or online educators in your workplace during this course (especially if you are using an LMS other than Blackboard Learn).
