The Center for Education and Training of Environment and Forestry (LHK Training Center) in collaboration with GIZ FORCLIME organized a workshop on 4 – 5 March 2016 in Bogor to evaluate the application of blended learning . The purpose of the workshop was to evaluate the trial conduced on implemention of the blended learning method. In addition, a quality assurance standard for future e-learning design was to be developed. This event was attended by 30 participants from LHK Training Center and Training Agency of Environment and Forestry (BDLHK).
Through quality assurance standards for e-learning it can be ensured that the BDLHK and LHK Training Center can act as training providers for e-learning and are able to measure the accomplishments of e-learning implementation. Additionally, the standar enables continuous improvement. The quality assurance standard for e-learning includes criteria and indicators, as well as general e-learning standards. Criteria and indicators are based on the ECBCheck and the Caucasus e-Learning Quality Checklist and have been adapted to the LHK Training Center and BDLHK situation. The criteria and indicators for e-learning include: management and organization (roles and responsibilities, time management, resource management), content (modules, media and evaluation), programming and implementation of training. The discussion on e-learning standards covers: templates for training design/curriculum, communication in the training, training content, implementation and evaluation of training.
The LHK Training Center and BDLHK will conduct workshops in April and May as the follow up on strengthening the institutional for e-learning implementation.
