Temporary Deferment of In-Person Training and Launch of E-learning

by | Apr 5, 2020 | News | 0 comments

Dear Learners,

Following the recent advisory by the multi-ministry task force for COVID-19, we will be converting all face to face classes in June 2020 to online-based classroom learning until further notice. This is to keep in line with the Phase 1 guideline for businesses to reduce activities that require interaction with groups of people. Do check for updates on the release of online classroom dates.

What is the difference between the e-learning and classroom training?

Typically, in a traditional classroom, classes are conducted with 1 trainer to 20 – 25 learners in a cluster or classroom seating format. Group discussions, group presentations, lectures, peer-to-peer coaching are all conducted face-to-face (in person).

In an online-based classroom, lessons will be delivered via a video conferencing software. Lectures will be conducted via screensharing, while group discussions and group brainstorming will be conducted via “breakout” rooms (individual virtual rooms) to split up discussions into smaller groups.

Online-Based Classroom Learner Guide

Unfamiliar with how our online classes are run? Read the Online-Based Classroom Learner Guide before signing up for a class.

We are currently working on developing training videos that do not include the participation of any attendees. These training videos are expected to be ready by the 3rd Quarter of this year. It will be uploaded to our learning resource portal at learningportal.equinetacademy.net and made available to existing learners of Equinet for at least a year.

There has never been a more important time to upskill ourselves, so that we will all emerge stronger, together.

Thank you for your support.
