To support the development of e-learning, the forestry vocational school (SMKK) in Kadipaten, in collaboration with the e-learning team from the Centre for Education and Training of Human Resources (CFET), Ministry of Environment and Forestry, and FORCLIME held a basic training on e-learning for SMKK teachers in Kadipaten - West Java on 15 to 16 October 2015. The training was attended by 18 teachers of SMKK Kadipaten, and facilitated by trainers from the e-learning team in CFET, as well as FORCLIME advisors.
This activity, which was initiated under the Ministry for Education and Culture’s plan to increase field practice for SMKK students and reduce the time spent in classrooms, had the immediate purpose of improving the learning processes in SMKKs by using e-learning technology. Therefore, the Kadipaten forestry vocational school plans to develop e-learning as a technology to deliver lessons to students during their field practices (off campus).
The participants in the training were very enthusiastic to practice the preparation of teaching materials using e-learning technology, especially as the software is free, user-friendly, and does not require high technical computer specifications.
The development of e-learning based teaching modules will continue in 2016 in order to create complete, interesting and interatice modules for the students.
