The scope will refer to the section in Manitoba’s legislation that gives authority to SAFE Work Manitoba to develop standards for workplace safety and health and training programs, including certification processes for providers.
In order for training programs, that incorporate an eLearning component, to be approved by SAFE Work Manitoba, it must meet both the eLearning Instructional Design Guidelines as well as the associated Training Program & Provider Standards that are established by SAFE Work Manitoba.
The term "eLearning" is a term covering a wide set of applications and processes that includes web-based learning or computer-based learning.
ELearning, combined with face-to-face learning, is also referred to as blended learning.
Learners have varying needs based on language, literacy, accommodation, scheduling, and location. As a result, a variety of delivery methods may be considered for approval, including classroom-based and blended learning programs.
When a blended learning program is being designed, the two sections of the training program must be well integrated.
For blended learning, evaluation in the face-to-face part of the training program must support and validate that the learning outcomes covered by the eLearning component of the training program have been adequately met by the learner.
The eLearning Instructional Design Guidelines set out the minimum criteria that must be met by approved training programs that contain an eLearning component. Once a training program standard is established, all training programs with an eLearning component must meet these guidelines to receive approval by SAFE Work Manitoba.
This document should be used in conjunction with a training program standard that’s been approved by SAFE Work Manitoba. It is intended to guide training providers and/or developers who want to include an eLearning component as part of a training program that is being submitted to SAFE Work Manitoba for approval.
As a mode of delivery, eLearning components of a training program must meet the learning outcomes outlined in the associated program standard.
The purpose of the eLearning Instructional Design Guidelines is to establish a minimum standard for high quality and consistent training for workers in the Province of Manitoba.
The eLearning Guidelines are based on the following guiding principles:
Every eLearning program introduction shall include: general information, a course outline and evaluation method. These three parts of the eLearning program introduction must be provided to learners before beginning the eLearning program to indicate what to expect during the program as well as the expected learning outcomes and anticipated benefits to the learners.
Instructional interactivity refers to approaches that actively engage learners to help them improve their ability to learn effectively.
Learners must have access to a qualified instructor to address any questions or concerns relating to the instructional content or performance of the eLearning portion of the training program.
The design and feel of the eLearning program must be user-friendly and allow the learner to have unrestricted access to important components from any point within the eLearning program. These would include:
CongruenceA measure of compatibility and assimilation of elements.
Distance LearningAn educational situation in which the instructor and learner are separated by location. Education or training courses are delivered to remote locations via synchronous or real-time instruction.
The act of engaging in an activity again and again for the purpose of improving or mastering a skill or learning concept.
ModuleA series of instructional units that can be measured, evaluated and assembled to form complete courses.
