BALID Institute of Information Management (BIIM) is going to organize a daylong workshop on ‘eXe learning’ software on Saturday 24 January 2015 at CIRDAP Computer Lab, Chameli House, 17 Topkhana Road, Dhaka. This is the first time in Bangladesh, a good number of the library professionals are going to experience with e-learning software.
Libraries used to arrange training program for library instructions, information literacy, e-resource management, reference management, avoiding plagiarism, and many more. In addition to trainings, the users need to practice their learning in a self-learning mode. Furthermore, the users who do not have the chance to attend or the personnel who are very shy or cannot manage time to attend library-arranged program, can practice the same materials through self-learning, and update their knowledge by taking exercise and quiz and monitor their own progress.
The library professionals are accountable to create and maintain the e-learning materials for their users. Generally, to create online content there is a need for IT professionals but the majority of the libraries have scarcity of dedicated IT professional. This is the visible gap and ‘eXe learning’ software is there to reduce the gap.
eXe learning is an open source application, and allows library professional to create online learning materials by themselves without the need to become proficient in HTML/XML or complicated web-publishing applications. Experts say, knowing Microsoft Word and internet browsing are enough to operate this software and create attractive and functional online learning materials.
i) To strengthen e-learning expertise among the library professionals.
ii) To create awareness about e-learning management by the libraries.
iii) To train trainers for respective organizations.
The first session will introduce the software and its applications followed by hands on training in the second session. Practical exercises will be on the third session and fourth session; and in the last session, the participants will personalize the entire learning according to their organizational need, and present their learning outcomes.
