COL developed this course to assist teachers of TVET institutes to incorporate ICT into their courses, moving towards a blended learning model, which integrates online digital resources with classroom teaching. The course is designed to be offered with a facilitator supporting cohorts of learners. However, individuals may find it helpful to work through the course to build their own understanding of blended learning. The course is designed to be delivered over eight weeks, with participants needing 3-4 hours per week to participate in the course discussions and activities, and time to develop their own online course content.
