E-Commerce Toolbox teachers guide
This section provides more detailed guidance for each unit of competency and project stage. On entering the Toolbox, the learner is presented with the homepage. From here the learner is asked to visit the induction area for a description of how to navigate the Toolbox. The learner is then directed to the projects area to begin work.
A communication area provides links to communication tools. If you intend to implement this Toolbox with all the communication tools, you will need to edit the links on this page to point to the correct email address, discussion forums etc. Refer to the section on ‘Customising the Toolbox’ for details.
The Toolbox consists of two main sections, which contain learning and assessment activities, i.e. the Resource packs and the Project area.
This area provides links to the resource packs, each of which contains information and activities to enable the learners to develop skills in a particular area corresponding to a unit of competency (eg Gather data to identify business requirements).
A resource pack contains a number of resources, each of which corresponds to an element within the unit of competency. Each resource contains a number of topics (tasks), which correspond to a performance criterion.
The resource packs are organised as follows:
An overview which describes:
an introduction to the subject area
a list of resources (elements) contained in the resource pack.
the resources which include:
A discussion of the concepts. In general there is a topic for each performance criteria. However in some cases the performance criteria have been merged or rearranged. This has been done to better reflect a typical workflow.
Links to activities to provide opportunities for learners to reinforce the concepts.
summary of the resource pack, including:
suggestions for extended study
references used in the resource pack
Activities contained on a separate page to facilitate customisation.
The resource packs are self-contained, and require little in the way of facilitation. You may choose to have the learner submit some of the formative activities, in which case you will need to advise learners of such changes.
