Participants’ voices – Focus on lifelong e-learning: innovative solutions

We are glad to publish a testimonial from South Africa.

Testimonial by Geoff Burton, participant in the training activity on "Lifelong e-learning: innovative solutions" (blended, from 4/10 to 12/11/2010).




For some years, I had been interested in having my company take a new strategic direction: to offer our training as e-learning.  However, I did not really know where to start, what tools and platforms were available, and what effective e-learning would look like.


When I heard about the ITC-ILO’s "Lifelong e-learning: innovative solutions" course, I thought that perhaps it could help solve some of those problems.


My expectations were far exceeded.  The workshop in Turin was inspiring in both content and interaction.  All the facilitators were friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic about their topic, and this made for an extremely enriching experience.


I learned so much about e-learning in those few short days – I wish the course could have been twice as long.  I have put all that I have learned into practice since my return to my office, and have completed my first e-learning course module.  Without the Turin course, this would not have been possible, and I think that attending was probably the best business decision I have ever made.
