An international network for leadership development had content from over 10 different live events that served as the base content for their core curriculum. They needed a way to delivery this content in locally organized events, on-going engagement for groups in close geographic proximity, and for distance-mentoring for geographically distributed groups.
Key factors in the delivery choices were content security, multi-lingual accessibility, globally distributed users with limited broadband access, need for bi-directional interaction between facilitators and participants, and consistent experience with content created over a multi-year time span.
After collecting video recordings, readings, activities, and other resources from the live events, use adult learning principles to design courses with clear learning objectives and learning activities, keeping in mind the need to adapt learning activities to the particular instructional context.
Place content on a hosted LMS in which perspective facilitators can use turn-key material or adapt core content for their particular distance-mentoring scenario.
Content is also provided as downloadable materials on the network's intranet for use in locally organized events and meetings.
