Comments on DE Training

Observed Challenges

  • Slow Internet

  • Challenge in learning to use Blackboard platform

  • Lack of commitment by some participants

  • Insufficient support from supervisors

    Strengths

  • Trainees worked from their home countries

  • Training affordable (500€/person for 6 weeks)

  • Used freely available software

Overall balance is positive, as:

Raised a lot of capacity with a limited a budget (96% of targeted 220)

Capacity also built among partners to offer distance education training

Training was used as entry-requirement for subsequent training (60% Participants in RT#1 from D.E).

Participants who failed were given a second chance to do the training.

Exam >> only committed people remain
