In a recent case pending for June 2016 approval the PM and the Minister for Education assistance was sought about the deficiencies in the case for endorsement presented by CPSISC for CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry. The stats are simple. 95% of white cards are delivered in an E-Learning / Online format with the average course time being between 2.5 to 4 hours to complete. 90 % of the age grouping is between 15 and 25 years that actually complete the program Why would we force students who learn everything via a high tech environment suddenly back to a book / in class format that doesn’t recognise learning styles and the ability of the learner to work faster? The costs to industry will be more than 1 Billion Dollars if they make this change crippling all levels of industry form small to large with much higher costs.

Online Assessments the Future of Global Learning

By | Blog, News
The Australian Government remains committed to ensuring there is a national approach to online assessment, including a move to deliver the National Assessment Program (NAP) online. Online assessment offers significant benefits including the potential to provide a more accurate measurement of student achievement, increased accessibility, and faster results. It can also provide teachers with vital diagnostic information that they can use in the classroom. Some of these benefits are already starting to be realised through ‘Improve’ – an online assessment tool available to all Australian teachers. Work is underway to develop a new national assessment system to support the delivery of NAPLAN online, and potentially state and territory online assessments, as well as innovative classroom assessments. A comprehensive research programme is also being undertaken by the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) to investigate student performance and measure impacts of delivering NAPLANonline. Education Services Australia (ESA) and ACARA are working with the Australian Government Department of Education to deliver this programme of work, in consultation with state and territory and non-government education authorities.

A few areas are especially promising for 2016, particularly when attitudes come into play. As forward-thinking and influential companies implement the best learning techniques, a wave of early adopters will take e-learning to the next level. Here are some of the trends that are worth a second look in the coming months. 1. Outsourcing On the Rise According to Docebo’s “E-Learning Market Trends & Forecast 2014-2016 Report,” the big story might not be what happens in the office, but what happens when businesses outsource e-learning to another company or service. Some 42 percent of e-learning spending goes to outsourcing, leaving just 58 percent of e-learning dollars in-house. Going forward that likely speaks to HR’s workload more than training skill level. Businesses are acknowledging that in order to train employees properly — and to retain the best talent — a couple of PowerPoint presentations aren’t going to cut it. Instead, e-learning professionals who understand neuroscience, engagement and...
