Abstract:

A) Topic
This presentation is focused on describing training conducted in Cairo, Egypt with teachers, computer programmers, and Ministry personnel on how to create online classes and how to manage them within Moodle.

B) Goal of your Research
There are two goals to this research: 1) Describe the flexible design model used in the training; 2) Detail the challenges experienced in providing such a training in this particular context. The presentation will end with ideas to improve future training efforts.

C) Theoretical / Conceptual Framework
The research is driven by constructivism learning theory. The training was created and facilitated in such a way that the leaner generated meaning by actively creating online coursework. The presentation will thus focus on how the trainers took a constructivist approach and allowed the learners to construct new knowledge from their experiences in the training.

D) Methodology
Data collected includes onsite qualitative surveys over 10 days and personal reflections from two trainers.

E) Findings
1. Top-down buy-in: If the top management of the organization is not on board, the initiative will fail.
2. Bottom-up enthusiasm: Enthusiasm for the program at all levels must exist if the program is to succeed.
3. Identify the goals: You must first identify your goals and the standards by which you will measure your success
4. Planning: Every eLearning implementation needs to be tailored to its specific environment.
5. Training Content Creators: Training the staff to produce high-quality and instructionally-sound eLearning content is one of the best investments a project can make to support the long-term viability of the project.
6. Supporting the learner: This support can take the form of a telephone help line, an email address of the instructor, or a website that answers questions.
