What is e-learning in Education?

E-learning, also referred to as online learning or electronic learning, is the acquisition of knowledge that takes place through electronic technologies and media. We can define e-learning as broad in scope and including both online learning and aspects of blended learning. E-learning covers all forms of digital teaching and learning, both on campus and remotely.

Typically, e-learning is conducted on the Internet, where students can access their learning materials online at any place and time. E-Learning most often takes place in the form of online courses, online degrees, or online programs.

E-learning can be both asynchronous and synchronous.
Asynchronous learning allows you to learn on your own schedule, within a certain timeframe. You can access and complete online recorded webinars, readings, homework and other learning materials at any time during a specific enrolment period. A big benefit to asynchronous classes is, of course, the flexibility.

For those students who still like to interact with a class full of people, synchronous online learning would be best. Synchronous learning means that although you will be learning from a distance, you will virtually attend a class session as scheduled by your RTO, at the same time as your Trainer and classmates. Much like a traditional classroom-based course, the online class is a firm, weekly time commitment that cannot be rescheduled.

How are the Training Packages developed?

Training package qualifications are occupational skills standards against which training delivery and assessment of competency can take place. They are developed through a process of national consultation with the industry relevant to the Qualification.

Training packages are developed by industry and endorsed for use in the Australian vocational education and training (VET) sector by the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC). The AISC’s role is to ensure that the directions taken by Skills Ministers are informed by an industry-based perspective focused on the quality and relevance of the national training system. The AISC is responsible for appointing Industry Reference Committee (IRC) members.

Industry Reference Committees (IRCs) are the key industry advisory bodies to the AISC. IRCs are made up of experts in relevant industry sectors and play a critical role in identifying and responding to emerging skills and training needs. Through IRCs, industry requirements for skills are considered and defined in training packages.

IRCs are supported in their work by independent, professional service organisations, known as Skills Service Organisations (SSOs). SSOs support IRCs in their engagement with industry, employers, and enterprises to identify the skills required for jobs, and to drive the training package development and review process so that units of competency and qualifications align with modern work practices. SSOs support IRCs to ensure training packages are developed in accordance with the Standards for Training Packages.

Currently, the TAE Training Package is being developed. You can access more information about the new updates by reading this blog article HERE
