Unit Descriptor

Unit descriptor 

This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to design, review and implement advanced enterprise electronic learning (e learning) solutions as a member of a senior management team.

The unit covers evaluating trends in e learning in relation to organisational plans, monitoring e learning resources, and ensuring any proposed solutions are tested and evaluated against organisational requirements.

No licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of endorsement.

Application of the Unit

Application of the unit 

This unit applies to leaders or managers working to ensure learning can enhance individual, team and organisational capabilities.

Managing the introduction of information and communication technology (ICT) to positively affect learning related processes and procedures may involve a complex range of considerations and choices. Processes to oversee and guide the evaluation of e learning technologies and systems are often necessary to support the provision of quality training and assessment services.

The unit may relate to learning activities within a small to medium sized organisation or to a significant unit of activity in a large organisation.

Leaders in learning can be required to improve how an organisation adopts, modifies or integrates existing ICT learning and related processes.
