The purpose of this guide is to provide detailed guidance on the use of virtual mode of learning for instructional designers and educators. It also provides basic concepts and information on the processes and resources involved in e-learning development, useful tips around policy and guidelines for the use of online platforms which will go a long way for the capacity development of the whole community.

We acknowledge that the transition to virtual learning will be challenging for families. Parents will need to think differently about how to support their children; how to create structures and routines that allow their children to be successful; and how to monitor and support their children’s learning.  Schools, like hospitals, are caregivers and we, as a school, will fall back on the school framework of Relevance, Relationship and Rigour to support parents in this process of creating meaningful engagement with their children.

Modes of Learning

There are two kinds of online learning and teaching that we need to balance based on our circumstances

Synchronous

Learning happens collaboratively and at the same time with a group of online learners and the teacher. Synchronous learning enables learners to ask questions and receive answers straight away. Learners can also collaborate freely with other learners.

For example: Webinars, Posts, Video conferencing, Virtual classrooms

Asynchronous

Learning happens at any time, not necessarily in a group, but with teacher feedback. It is learner-centered, enabling learners to complete courses without the constraints of having to be in a certain place at a certain time.

For example: Email, Pre-recorded Video Lessons and Webinars
