e-learning course dedicated to individual users, the training materials were
also developed to be hosted in an e-learning environment that delivers the
training content online. Trainees can access the course materials through the
web-based platform of the project. The e-learning materials follow the
asynchronous learning approach where learners can complete the course modules
or activities at their own time and pace. This allows them to fit their
learning around personal or professional commitments, making it convenient for
individuals with busy schedules. In addition, asynchronous learning follows
self-directed and autonomous learning. Learners do not require direct
supervision or guidance from a trainer or instructor during their learning
process. They can navigate the course materials, engage in the learning
activities, and progress through the content independently. This self-directed
approach empowers learners to take responsibility for their learning journey.
They can choose when and how they engage with the course materials, allowing
them to customize their learning experience based on their needs and
preferences. E-learning materials can be accessed from anywhere with an internet
connection, enabling learners to learn at their convenience. This accessibility
removes geographical barriers and allows learners to study from different
locations or time zones.

A. Summary of
Module: The summary provides learners an overview of the module’s content. It
briefly outlines the main topics, concepts, or skills covered in the module,
giving learners a sense of what to expect.
Learning Objectives: Clearly stated learning objectives describe the specific
knowledge, skills, or competencies that learners are expected to acquire upon
completing the module. These objectives provide learners with a clear focus and
direction, guiding their learning and enabling them to track their progress.
C. Units in the
Module: The module is divided into individual units, each addressing a specific
subtopic or theme. This breakdown helps organize the content and makes it
easier for learners to navigate the module. Units may include subheadings,
learning materials, activities, or assessments specific to each subtopic.
