an Australian pilot skilling project was launched to develop a more effective capacity building model for tourism enterprises.

an australian pilot skilling project
An Australian pilot skilling project
  • Aim: to raise industry standards and move away from ineffective silo approaches to industry training and capacity building.
  • Reflection: it reflects the importance of and contributes to the development of an effective national voluntary accreditation system.
  • Concepts for the project: ICT, in the form of online learning, can enhance operator use of ICT and create awareness of what ICT can do for business operations.
e learning
E-learning
  • Definition: Learning takes place anytime someone uses electronic means for gathering information either with or without another live person.
  • Inclusion: web-based technologies, CD-ROMS, DVDs and videoconferencing.
  • Potential: emerge of “ learning regions”( a variety of regional agents and institutions are brought together to “learn to learn” together)---create competitive advantage

Two projects for online learning opportunities

1. SMART-UP----European

Aim: increase know-how and ICT literacy through the provision of specific tourism-related modules via an internet-based learning platform and work with up-to-date ICT and ensure e-learning content modules correspond with their needs.

Target: small and medium-sized hotels in Austria, Ireland, Great Britain and Switzerland.

Survey: a respondent sample of 55

Results: “ ICT denial stage”---not yet using ICT and Internet for inter-or intra-organizational purposes.

Pilot issues

  • A number of issues were identified:
  • Operators expressed concerns about the security of their personal business planning and marketing details and others materials being entered onto an online server
  • The major benefits perceived by operators were the time saving aspects demonstrated in the smart form concept.
  • Operators were drawn in by the best practice examples and direct links to the online resources to bring and keep them up to date with industry information and development.
