Qualification set up

DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE:

This stage of Learnership Administration involves setting up the qualification's elements. It involves obtaining the qualification statement and all the required unit standards. These are then captured in the T-LMS. The end result is a representation of the qualification in the program's database that serves as a basis around which to build all the other elements of the qualification.

TIMING:

This is a once-off event that is performed after the T-LMS program has been set up and configured for the client.

CLIENT'S ROLE:

The client will need to:

* Supply the qualification number and unit standard numbers that will be used.

* Provide the names of the qualification's subjects or modules together with a matrix of which unit standards are covered under each module.

* Quality assure the set up of the qualification.

PRICE:

This service is included as part of the standard price.

Capture unit standards.

The first step in adding a new qualification is to capture the unit standard data associated with the qualification. If the qualification is NOT unit standard-aligned then a default unit standard can be used and it is not necessary to capture other unit standards. Alternatively, the client has the option to create its own non-SAQA registered unit standards based on its analysis of the information in the qualification.

Add the qualification & configure its subjects.

The basic details of the qualification are captured in the T-LMS as published by SAQA. This creates an entity in the program against which learners can be registered and tracked. The configuration of the qualification also involves naming and capturing its sub-entities (subjects or modules). These may be named and configured as you please, but the idea is to cluster the unit standards covered in the qualification into logical subjects/modules. Also, once added, a subject may be treated as a skills programme. This enables you to enrol learners on parts of a qualification if necessary. Typically, when clustering unit standards into subjects, one would consider whether they are compulsory or elective unit standards.

Assessment set up

DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE:

This stage of the Learnership Administration Service involves capturing all the assessments and configuring their run-time parameters i.e. how they will behave when the learners take them or when results are captured against them.

TIMING:

This is generally a once-off event that is performed after the qualification has been set up and configured. However, it is possible to make changes to the run-time parameters once the qualification is in use.

CLIENT'S ROLE:

The client will need to:

* Supply all assessments in a format that is consistent with the T-LMS' assessment types, namely, the nine different auto-marked question types, the open-ended question type and the assignment-styled question type. We will help and guide you as much as possible and even adapt your questions, if necessary.

* Decide on the run-time parameters you want for the assessments and communicate these to us. This is a vital aspect in that these parameters are used by the T-LMS to identify exceptions - which by definition are problems that need to be addressed by us or you. Our approach is to deal with exceptions up to a point, where after we will escalate persistent or critical exceptions directly to the client for a decision on what action to take and who will take it.

* Provide us with a matrix of the relationships between each question/assignment and its unit standard(s).

* Provide the details of all Assessors and Moderators so that they can be registered to use the T-LMS.

* Provide a matrix of Assessors and Moderators and the subjects or assessments they will be evaluating.

PRICE:

This service is included as part of the standard price.

Capture auto-marked assessments: ePOE.

The auto-marked assessments are those that consist of question types that can be marked automatically by the program. For example, True or False; Multiple-choice; Matching columns; Click on screen and so on. There are nine such question types in the T-LMS. Typically these question types get used when building formative assessments.

Assessments are treated as reusable objects in the T-LMS which means that they can be linked to multiple qualifications. This saves time when building qualifications that share common, usually fundamental-level, assessments.

Capture Assessor-marked assessments: ePOE.

These are assessments that will need to be marked by an Assessor because they require human interpretation to evaluate. The T-LMS has two question types that fall into this category of assessment, namely:

1. Open-ended questions - also known as short answer questions

2. Assignments.

Both of these question types ultimately accomplish the same end result, but the difference is that assignments offer a deeper degree of Assessor evaluation. Assignments also allow you to define multiple tasks that comprise the assignment, whereas open-ended questions can be combined with other auto-marked questions in an assessment.

Set run-time parameters.

The run-time parameters of an assessment affect how and when the assessment will be delivered to learners as well as how it reacts when results are captured or when deadlines are missed.

Some of the run-time parameters are:

1. The pass mark, which can be anything from 100% and lower.

2. The number of times an assessment can be RETURNED to a learner for reworking, which can be set at any value from zero upwards.

3. The maximum number of times an assessment can be ATTEMPTED by a learner, which can be set at any value from zero upwards.

4. When to display a 'You need assistance' message to the learner.

5. When to block a learner's access to an assessment.

6. Whether or not the T-LMS must assign an Assessor to mark the assessment when it is submitted by a learner.

7. The type of assessment - formative or summative.

8. The moderation requirement - must be moderated or need not be moderated.

9. Whether or not the assessment must be done in the workplace and thus have an accompanying signed workplace authentication form.

10. The number of days before, if any, to send a reminder of the pending due date of an assessment.

11. The action the T-LMS must take, if any, when an assessment deadline is not met.

Survey set up

DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE:

This stage of Learnership Administration involves capturing all the surveys and configuring their run-time parameters i.e. how they will behave. A survey is a set of questions designed to gauge learners' opinions on issues relating to the qualification and their experience thereof.

TIMING:

This is generally a once-off event that is performed after the qualification has been set up and configured.

CLIENT'S ROLE:

The client will need to:

* Supply all survey questions in a format that is consistent with the T-LMS' survey question types, namely Open-ended, 2-Option, 3-Option and 5-Option.

* Decide on the run-time parameters they want for the surveys and communicate these to us. Tawanda will guide you on the possible options.

PRICE:

This service is included as part of the standard price.

More...

Create surveys and capture questions.

Surveys is the name used in the T-LMS to describe on-line questionnaires that are used to collect information on users' opinions about qualifications, material and assessments.

Surveys can only be taken by registered users of the T-LMS, in the following ways:

1. After doing an assessment.

2. At any time, via the Main menu, if the survey has been directed at the organisation structure the user belongs to.

3. After receiving an email with a survey link in it.

The results of surveys can be observed on screen or downloaded into Excel.

Set run-time parameters.

The run-time parameters of a survey affect the way the survey is delivered to users. Most typically they are delivered after the learner has taken an assessment, but they can also be delivered directly to the learner's in tray (portfolio) or via a link in an email.

X

Learning material

DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE:

This stage of Learnership Administration involves capturing the learning material that will be delivered for the qualification. There are two ways to deliver material electronically, namely

1) As file downloads. Typically, the file types that are accepted are Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations and Adobe Acrobat files, but other file types can also be accommodated on request. This is a less secure option from a protection of intellectual property rights perspective (although, no less secure than printed learning manuals), but it speeds up the qualification set up process in the T-LMS.

2) As fully fledged eLearning. Typically, this option will require your material to be digitised and captured as eCourses on the T-LMS. This option is a lot more secure because the T-LMS doesn't allow copy and paste of text in eCourses.

Blended learning. Frequently clients need a blended learning approach and the T-LMS can accommodate this. It is also possible to build eLearning in other well known proprietary programs and then import or link to them from the T-LMS.

TIMING:

This is generally a once-off event that is performed after the assessments have been set up and configured, but because this stage can be time-consuming it can be carried out at any time really.

CLIENT'S ROLE:

The client will need to:

* Supply all the files that will be used if the file download option will be followed.

* Supply all the learning materials that need to be converted to eLearning. Tawanda Learning, or one of our agents will consult you in the further analysis and authoring of the material into eLearning. The transition to eLearning is a journey. We encourage it when the nature of the material lends itself to self-study, digital delivery.

PRICE:

1) File download option. This service is included as part of the standard price.

2) Authoring of eLearning. This service is NOT included as part of the standard price.

More...

Load self-study guides (optional).

The transition from a manual qualification administration system to a digital one, is often a time consuming task. Consequently, the T-LMS offers clients the opportunity to distribute learning material and other supporting documents by direct download. We view extensive use of such downloads as a temporary solution while the company converts to full-blown eLearning.

Load eLearning courses (optional).

Loading eLearning courses does not form part of the standard service for outsourced the Learnership Administration Service because it requires specialist expertise to author such material, and may be a time consuming task. The degree of development sophistication required by the client is a major factor in determining cost.

The T-LMS contains a very flexible eLearning capability that can be integrated with the assessment delivery capability to enable learners to have a seamless course experience while studying.

The following features can be used in the T-LMS eLearning offering:

1. Video

2. Audio

3. All the normal features of a web page

4. Custom Style Sheets (css)

5. Progress tracking and restrictions

6. Course blogs

7. User comments per page

8. Email support to the course specialist

9. Printing of course certificate.

Link courses to subjects.

A course can be designated as a classroom course or an eLearning course. Both of these course types need to be linked to the relevant qualification and subject as part of the qualification set up process.

Once linked, when a learner is enrolled on a qualification, the T-LMS will automatically also enrol the learner on all the eLearning courses, but will not do so for classroom courses because typically it can't determine which of the scheduled courses the various learners must attend. Enrolling learners on classroom courses is thus a task that needs to be performed by the T-LMS Administrator as an when needed.

Learning enrolments & scheduling

DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE:

This stage of the Learnership Administration Service involves planning and scheduling your qualification. This is a vital task if the learners are to finish on time, but equally important are the assessment schedules which are needed for the T-LMS to properly track the learners. The stage also involves scheduling classroom courses and enrolling learners on qualifications, eCourses and classroom courses.

TIMING:

Generally speaking this is a repetitive task that is performed as and when required. For example, you may decide to enrol learners on the full qualification from the outset, or you might prefer to enrol them on an as needed basis. Likewise, you may kick off the academic season without knowing the full schedule of assessments or courses and so you decide to schedule these as needed.

CLIENT'S ROLE:

The client will need to:

* Supply the list of learners' and their personal details in the format required by the T-LMS.

* We will supply an enrolment matrix template for the qualification which the learners will complete and you will sign off before we do the actual enrolments. The matrix is of learners, their qualifications and options for the elective unit standards - if any.

* We will initiate and manage the scheduling of courses, but as and when needed, you will need to sign off on the schedule of courses and their attendees.

PRICE:

This service is included as part of the standard price.

More...

Schedule classroom courses

This function in the T-LMS enables us to manage the delivery of classroom-based training. It offers both a click-to-schedule approach in a visual matrix or a traditional date-picker approach. We will liaise with you regularly to get your course scheduling needs.

Schedule assessments

Assessments can be scheduled in three ways in the T-LMS, namely:

1. By creating a schedule matrix for a group of learners who will all share the same enrolment on a qualification. A schedule matrix can be set up manually (i.e. each date is manually captured) or you can elect to allow the T-LMS to automatically calculate the dates based on the start and end date of the qualification that you supply.

2. Per assessment, per individual.

3. Automatically by the T-LMS when a not yet competent result is assigned to an assessment and the set up parameter calls for the assessment to be rescheduled.

Scheduling assessments is not a compulsory task in the T-LMS but it is highly recommended, especially if a qualification must be completed in a given time period.

Create enrolment groups

An enrolment group is a named entity in the T-LMS that serves to group a number of learners who will share a common enrolment on a qualification. You can think of an enrolment group as a class of learners. The main purpose of such groups is to enable bulk enrolments on qualifications, but they also help to categorise and differentiate learners when drawing reports. In short, enrolment groups are an administrative imperative when dealing with large groups of learners.

Enrol learners on qualifications, skills programmes & courses

ENROLMENT ON QUALIFICATIONS: Learners can be enrolled on qualifications individually or in groups. Currently the T-LMS doesn't support self-enrollment. Once an enrolment has been successfully made the T-LMS will dispatch an email to the learner informing him/her.

ENROLMENT ON SKILLS PROGRAMMES: In the T-LMS a skills programme is a portion of a full qualification, known as a subject. Clients can elect to enrol learners on selected skills programmes only if so needed.

ENROLMENT ON COURSES: Learners can be enrolled on classroom courses or eLearning courses individually or in groups. Currently the T-LMS doesn't support self-enrollment, but it does support electronic enrolment requests to be sent via email to the T-LMS Administrator. Once an enrolment has been successfully made the T-LMS will dispatch an email to the learner informing him/her of the course dates and venue.

Create assessment groups (if necessary)

An assessment group is a named entity in the T-LMS that serves to group a number of learners who will take an assessment as a group. When setting up a group the T-LMS Administrator will appoint one of the members as the group leader and it will be the responsibility of this person to submit the assessment. All other group members will not be able to submit the assessment but they will be able to upload files against it. When group assessments are marked the T-LMS assigns the same result to all members and they share a common portfolio in this regard. To facilitate communication between the group members, who may be widely spread geographically, the T-LMS has a Chat facility.

Learner management

DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE:

This stage of the Learnership Administration Service involves continuous monitoring and evaluation of the Learnership to ensure that:

* All learners are progressing according to plan and that, when necessary, corrective action is taken to recover any deviation from the expected. It is vital that any exceptions are identified early so that corrective measures can be set in place. Exceptions include, but are not limited to: late assessment submissions; non-attendance on scheduled courses; habitual poor assessment performance etc.

* All Assessors are marking according to agreed time lines.

* All Internal Moderations are being carried out regularly.

* Support services to Learners are being delivered in time.

* Information gleaned from surveys is continually fed back to the client and addressed as part of a continuous improvement process.

Any deviations uncovered that are within Tawanda Learning's ambit of control will be addressed and the client notified, when appropriate. However, some deviations will always remain the client's responsibility to resolve, mostly because of the contractual relations between the role-players. In such circumstances Tawanda Learning will co-operate with the client to identify, analyse and recommend solutions, but the client will remain accountable for taking and enacting final decisions.

TIMING:

This is a repetitive and ongoing task.

CLIENT'S ROLE:

The client will need to take decisions and respond to deviations that are within their ambit of control.

PRICE:

This service is included as part of the standard price.

More...

Monitor requests for support

Users of the T-LMS can access a screen with which to request support from the LMS Administrator. We will monitor and respond to all requests for support and resolve them within 24 hours. In cases were the client needs to respond, such as if the query concerns the subject matter of an eCourse (which we are not competent nor entitled to handle), then it will immediately be sent to the client.

Monitor late assessment submissions

Obviously, the T-LMS can only monitor those assessments that have a deadline date. The program can be set up to scan for late submissions every day at midnight or every hour, on the hour. When a late submission is detected the T-LMS will act on it according to the run-time parameters the Client has set up for the assessment. This might be to take no action at all, or to block (red card) the assessment so that the learner is forced to account for the late submission.

Having observed our clients' choices in this regard, there is no doubt that a strict policy on late submissions is absolutely vital to ensue that all learners finish a qualification on time.

Monitor course attendance & progress

The T-LMS caters for the printing of blank attendance registers for a course. Once the register has been signed by each attendee it can be scanned and uploaded against the course as a record of attendance. In addition, the attendance (or non-attendance for that matter) will be noted in the T-LMS database. The record of a learner's attendance is available to LMS Administrators, Assessors and Moderators to view.

The T-LMS also contains reports that provide tracking information on eLearning course progress. Using these reports allows one to identify learners who are lagging behind and take the necessary corrective action.

Monitor marking & evaluation

When an assessment is submitted for marking the T-LMS will dispatch an email to the relevant Assessor informing him/her of the submission. It is vital that Assessors attend to their evaluation responsibilities efficiently and effectively. To this end the T-LMS has a report that allows the client to monitor the time it takes to mark assessments that are in their in tray. Where deviations are found corrective action can be taken.

Monitor eCourse & blog comments

Course blogs are frequently used by Learners to comment on the material or ask questions to which other learners can reply. Blogs therefore serve as a valuable extension of the course material but at the same time they allow one to identify parts of a course that are deficient in some way or another. For this reason it is vital that our service includes monitoring of course blogs. Where valid issues are found the Client will be informed.

Monitor survey results & comments

Surveys are used to gather user's opinions on a wide range of topics related to a qualification. Surveys are therefore a valuable instrument in the toolbox for identifying strengths and weaknesses. For this reason it is vital that our service includes monitoring of survey results. Where valid issues are found the Client will be informed.

It is very important to note that the survey data is totally confidential and it is not possible identify an individual's data.

Track qualification progress & produce SOR

Probably the most important aspect of the Learnership Administration Service is to ensure that as many learners possible are progressing at the required rate. To this end the T-LMS has a number of reporting instruments that feed tracking information on a daily, weekly, monthly or on demand basis.

We cannot over stress the importance of keeping your finger on the pulse.

Initiate corrective action

A core feature of the Learnership Administration Service is the early detection of deviations and the subsequent corrective action that is taken. On many occasions we will take that action on your behalf based on your instructions in our agreement or from time to time via email and telephone. However, in certain circumstance we are not able to act on your behalf and you will have to take charge yourself, or empower us to do so on your behalf.

X

Reporting

This stage of the Learnership Administration Service involves continuous reporting on all aspects of a Learnership. The reporting information passed on to the client will be drawn from the standard reports that are already built in to the T-LMS. Any deviation for the standard reports may attract an additional once-off cost for the information to be generated.

Clearly, reports can only reflect data that is saved within the T-LMS database. Should you require additional information that is currently not collected by the T-LMS this will be dealt with as a customisation of the T-LMS for which a fee may be charged.

NOTE: Currently there are 21 different SETA's and thus, potentially, there are 21 different sets of SETA report requirements. In addition, the SETAs may at a whim change their requirements and so this places a burden on us to keep developing or changing reports. For this reason we develop SETA-specific reports on an as needed basis. Our guarantee to you is that we will develop reports that are compliant with your SETA's (or the QCTO's) requirements once you are our client.

The T-LMS ships with a large number of reports and data views that offer clients always up-to-date information on the state of affairs in all modules of the T-LMS.

Please contact us for a full list of reports.

TIMING:

This is a repetitive and ongoing task.

CLIENT'S ROLE:

The client will need to specify the nature and frequency of the reports they require as well as communicate their SETA's requirements to us.

PRICE:

This service is included as part of the standard price.

Other features

In addition to the above functions the T-LMS has the following capabilities which ensure that we give you a comprehensive service.

1. LMS administration. We will manage the LMS configurations and default data according to your needs.

2. Produce WSP and ATR reports. If necessary, we will manage the service and produce these reports on your behalf.

3. Individual Development Plan - IDP. Users can build their IDP from information based on their Competency Assessment Tool results or from general course data captured in the database. This service will be included in the standard offering and we will oversee its administration.

4. Users can send online requests to be enrolled on facilitated courses, eCourses, qualifications or courses in the Individual Development Plan. Clearly, this has cost implications for the client and consequently we will set up the service to ensure that only approved courses are attended by your users.

5. Certificate set up. Create impressive course and qualification certificates in a jiffy and allow users to print their own certificates one they are complete or competent. We will set up the certificates. If complex graphics are required the development of these will be for the client's account.

6. Set up any recipient to receive mailed reports daily, weekly or monthly. Recipients need not be registered in the database, but you will need to give us the email addresses of the people you want us to set up for this service.

7. Basic accounting functions like issue invoices, receipts and credit notes to individual or company accounts. Cash book and journal entries. Track Assessor's marking fees. We will need to discuss and agree on the extent of our involvement in this regard.

8. Users can search for when courses are scheduled and track their own scheduled courses. We will set up the service to send an automatic email reminder to users who are booked to attend classroom training courses.

10. We will set up and maintain an organogram to reflect your organisation's structure.

11. We will set up the service to automatically dispatch emails to the various role-players at critical stages in the learning process so as to inform and activate users.

12. Marketing app. The LMS ships with a flexible application for rapidly creating email marketing campaigns and dispatching them to the marketing database. This service is NOT part of the standard offering.

14. We will capture your training locations and venues in the program so as to facilitate the classroom course delivery service.

15. We will capture your training suppliers in the database together with their courses and prices.

17. We will manage users' permissions so as to ensure tight security over your data.

19. We will maintain an interactive Notice Board for all users. You tell us what you want to communicate and we'll capture it.

20. We will dispatch bulk emails to your users at your request. You tell us what you want to communicate in the email and we'll send it.

Price

Learnerships:

We charge a fixed percentage of the amount you are paid by the SETA/QCTO for the Learnership. Our fee will be invoiced monthly and spread over the duration of the Learnership.

If a learner doesn't finish within the given period the same fee will continue, month to month, until the learner completes the learnership or is terminated.

Mixed enrolments:

If you have a mix of users, some of which are on Learnerships and others not, the fee will be as stated above for the Learnership users and the rest will be charged our standard monthly fee per user.

If your initial intake of learners is small - 100 or less, we will require payment of a once-off fee to load a qualification.

Authoring eLearning courses is not included in the standard price. We will quote separately for this service.

IMPORTANT: The client, not Tawanda Learning, is responsible for determining when users are registered on the T-LMS and/or enrolled on qualifications, and when they are to be removed off the system. This places the burden of responsibility for managing the cost of the service on you and so all registrations, enrolments and changes thereto must be initiated by the client in writing, via email or the T-LMS itself.

Please contact Neil on +27 83 254 2996 to discuss your needs.

Training needs analysis

Integrated with the T-LMS is a Competency Assessment Tool (CAT) that can be used to identify training needs. Competency assessments differ from qualification assessments in that they are based on an analysis of occupation-specific competencies whereas qualification assessment is based on learning outcomes. Competency assessments are centred around OFO Occupations.

Clearly there should be an intersection of knowledge and skill between competency and qualification assessments, but competency assessment allow for:

  • Assessments that are better targeted at the heart of what employees need to be competent in to succeed in their SPECIFIC jobs.

  • Continuous re-assessment to establish changes in overall organisation-wide competence as a result of employee movements in and out of the organisation.

  • Training interventions that can be targeted at highly specific needs as opposed to whole qualifications.

  • Use in the organisation's recruitment and selection or succession planning processes to establish if applicants are indeed competent for the position they are applying for.

  • Identification of training needs when compiling the organisation's Workplace Skills Plan - WSP.

  • Use in the organisation's performance management process in the form of objective training needs.

Core benefits:

  • Once set up, the CAT offers a quick and flexible alternative to identify competence levels throughout your organisation.

  • Ensure that training is directly tailored to needs in the organisation, its systems and processes and so reduce wasteful expenditure on "nice to have" training.

  • Automatically feed training needs information directly into your WSP and performance management process.

  • Obtain objective data on training needs rather than peoples' gut feel on what training they need.

  • The reusable databank of assessment questions can be deployed rapidly as frequently as needed.

  • Obtain objective competency level information for job applicants.

Our service offering includes the following:

  • Online provision of the Competency Assessment Tool and related functions of the T-LMS.
  • Managing CAT projects.
  • Advice and support with conducting competency analyses. At your request we will investigate and introduce you to industry specialists who can perform competency analyses.
  • Data capturing of competencies, assessment questions, configuring competency profiles and setting up assessment instances (tests).
  • Provision of reports for individuals or rolled up reports for groups based on your organisation structure.

The cost of the Competency Assessment Service is variable because it depends on the extent of our involvement.

Please contact Neil on 083 254 2996 to discuss the possibilities.

eLearning course development

The T-LMS offers a simple yet robust eLearning authoring tool. We can develop new or convert existing material into eLearning that is intended for pure digital delivery or for use in a blended learning process.

We can rapidly convert material from MS Word, PowerPoint or PDF formats into eLearning courses.

Our development capability includes:

  • Analysing existing material and recommending how it can be adapted to eLearning or a blended learning approach.
  • Analysing new material and designing a cost-effective development and delivery approach.
  • Developing eye-catching and well structured content.
  • Integrating images, audio and video into eLearning material (We do not actually develop the images, audio and video but we will assist in the design and scripting thereof.)

This service requires you to sign up for the Learnership Administration Service or the Hosted Training Service as described elsewhere on this page.

The cost of the eLearning Course Development Service is variable because it depends on the scope of the work, the complexity of the eLearning requirements and the delivery options you need.

Please contact Neil on 083 254 2996 to discuss the possibilities.
