|Mark discusses a Office 2007 Screen|
One way is through a unique offering by the Training video
production company - The 8.45 Club. The company creates 15 minutes of education in a video and screen shot format that can be viewed when convenient for the learner.
For this project, the company created Office 2007 training delivered in 40+ bite-sized video modules, totalling five hours of learning in total. Teachers can dip in and out to suit them – learning when they need to and not being limited to when a trainer is in a classroom after school. It is structured so that staff can learn at the pace they want to, or jump straight to a particular topic.
Which sounds like a new way to do in-service teaching. As Mark Copeman, the founder of the 8:45 Club says, “We’ve already got our first 500 teachers signed up to use the course – and currently, the most popular module is on shortcuts." “The really great thing about the course website, is that users can track the time they spend learning and submit a certificate towards their Continuous Professional Development time for that school year."
On demand learning for teachers, what a great idea.
