eLearning for International Markets

Experiences form Leonardo da Vinci Projects GreTel and BATCOS

elearning an international product
eLearning – an international product?
  • Vocational training and education is loosening its local ties and developing to become an export article.
  • eLearning products as such are international products: they can be used any time and at any place
  • Requirements for international elearning offers are highly underestimated
economical facts supporting the internationalisation of elearning products

  • Rather low running costs compensate for the relatively high investments for development in advance.
  • The durability of the contents of vocational training and education is continuously decreasing.

It is the multiple use of eLearning products within a short period of time that justifies high development costs.

  • International markets offer better opportunities to make use of those scale effects.

Requirements for international elearning offers are highly underestimated
  • Offering translated WBT on the learning platform of a provider is not enough
  • eLearning products that are developed in a specific culture cannot be applied in other cultures merely by translating them
global competition in elearning
Global competition in eLearning
  • European providers have a relatively week position on international eLearning markets
  • Providers from northern America benefit from competitive advantages on the European Market:
    • English as the lingua franca
    • Product development for large markets
chances of european elearning providers
Chances of European eLearning providers
  • On the other hand European providers are faced with various advantages, too:
    • Good reputation of European Vocational Training Institutions
    • Wide ranging experience in training and cultural variety

These advantages are not being used in a sufficient way for exportation of vocational training and education.

conclusion
Conclusion
  • Collaboration of European eLearning experts is therefore essential for enhancing the quality of eLearning products and meeting the challenges of international competition.
collaboration amongst european experts
Collaboration amongst European experts
  • In the frame of the LEONARDO projects GreTel and BATCOS eLearning experts from various European countries work together to tap the full European potential.
  • The experience acquired by this collaboration is being applied to the development of cross-cultural eLearning modules.
slide11
Partners form Czech Republic, Germany, Italy and United Kingdom developed a wide range of courses for management improvement in SME:
    • Information and Communication Technology in Business Practice
    • Business Administration
    • Project Management
    • Production Processes

Adaptation
  • Translation - more than a matter of words
  • Factors to be taken into account:
    • Differences in the scope of information technology equipment available
    • Cultural factors and differences in learning habits
  • Technical adaptation can...
    • ...potentially make it more difficult for learners with media competencies to access new media
    • ...create unnecessarily excessive requirements for basic technical equipment

 allows learning modules and progress tests to be adapted flexibly to discrete learning situations and specific target groups.

  • Easy usage - requires relatively low levels of technical skills.
