E-Learning - Translating LMI into Service Delivery -

ETA asked three volunteer state LMI entities (Mississippi, Missouri, and Ohio) to field test, refine, and replicate webinar-based LMI training products along two previously developed curriculum tracks. Specifically, ETA requested the training materials target One-Stop staff and state and local policy decision makers and strategic planners. The specific tasks identified were as follows: - Review, vet, and field test the E-Learning modules; - Improve and modify with recognition of the state and sub-state workforce context and inclusion of state information tools and products; - Field test the updated / customized / revised modules with state / local workforce system staff representatives from the two targeted end user groups; - Re-evaluate, revise and / or further improve as needed; - Develop a standard operating procedures (SOPs) for each module; - Deliver the revised models to ETA for Web site posting of the E-Learning modules for replication by other states. End User Audience - One-Stop staff - Workforce Professionals - Workforce Investment Board members and staff - State, regional and local planners - Chambers of Commerce - Regional and local economic development entities - State and local education and training staff

"Benchmark" Version of the Translating LMI into Service Delivery - Fundamentals of LMI Series

The use of labor market and workforce information and data for state and local decisions is strongly encouraged by ETA, and the agency has attempted to consistently convey this message to the workforce development system staff in numerous speeches, conference/workshop sessions, and Webinars; and also through policy guidance letters, grant solicitation packages, and the WIA – Wagner-Peyser program planning requirements. To assist the state workforce agencies and local workforce investment boards to further embed this philosophy into everyday decision-making activities, ETA funded the development of an E-Learning Series that focused on increased use of LMI, workforce information, and economic analysis. Designed to use a variety of learning methodologies including self-paced, self-administered, blended learning, and distance learning methodologies and approaches; the E-Learning series was developed and was field tested and customized by three states MS, MO, and OH. The self-administered Benchmark version of the e-Learning curriculum, Fundamentals of LMI, was developed based on the original Translating LMI into Service Delivery modules and the experiences gained from the three state replicators. This version was designed for adoption and customized by other states and organizations for the internal use by an organization and/or personal use by an individual for non-commercial purposes.

The Colorado LMI 101 Online Training Series

The Colorado LMI 101 Online e-Learning Training Series In 2006, LMI 101 was developed as a PowerPoint presentation for workforce center professionals, educators, business organizations and other partner agencies. This training was delivered face-to-face in training facilities and conference rooms across the state. By 2009, this training was redesigned for delivery as an e-learning series. The Abode Connect Presenter platform was already available in Colorado so that platform was used for the e-learning series. Colorado LMI 101 Online is divided into two Parts. Part I consists of six modules, each of which is ten minutes or less in duration. Part I is a prerequisite for Part II. The six Part I modules are: ? Module 1: Getting Started ? Module 2: Customers and Data Classifications ? Module 3: Industry Information and Unemployment Data ? Module 4: Occupational Statistics and Projections ? Module 5: Local Employment Dynamics ? Module 6: LMI Products Part II of LMI 101 Online consists of an activity that functions more like a game. It requires learners to answer a variety of questions similar to those asked by customers in One-Stop Centers. Upon completion of Parts I & II, the learner will be able to access a variety of data to address basic customer and agency needs for labor market information and have a functional understanding of our web site. We anticipate that this training will create an improved awareness of LMI data and its uses. Initial feedback from learners has been very positive. In addition, new courses will be developed as specific needs for training are identified. Dee Funkhouser Questions and comments on this e-learning experience are welcome. Please contact Dee.Funkhouser@state.co.us.

E-Learning Virtual Catalogue

In 2008 the Employment and Training Administration embarked on a strategy to extend their reach in educating employees and partners of the workforce system utilizing technology tools that will create virtual classrooms anywhere, anytime. This strategy embraced the best practices from e-learning experts and those of adult learning principles to create relevant, dynamic content for employees and partners of the workforce system. The strategy leverages the vitality of high quality, participative content with local facilitators in creating a virtual environment for participant engagement, and the retention and transferability of knowledge and skills. Benefits of this strategy include:

  • utilizing the wealth of talent and knowledge within the system from facilitators and subject matter experts in creating and delivering content when and where needed
  • content can be easily customized for local application including references to tools, situations, policies and procedures
  • through the use of technology during the class learners can easily engage with the facilitator, subject matter expert and each other to share success stories and challenges, try new skills and test their understanding of concepts and knowledge of the subject
  • use of the Community of Practice (CoP) to create connections between learners before, during and after the classes will facilitate ongoing sharing of information and long term connections between people with shared interests
  • distribution of learning across the broad spectrum of participant locations and learning needs
  • practical amount of time spent in training (seat time) in any one class
  • create opportunities for widespread adoption of knowledge, processes, tools
  • use storytelling, best practices to celebrate successes, recognize early adopters or experts
