RTO leaders need to create an environment which ensures that their trainers/assessors and their students get the most out of their e-environments.

Explore the digital learning environment commonly provided by RTOs for their students - and that is essential all trainers can professionally navigate!

Training and assessing online goes far beyond having good e-facilitation and e-assessment skills. There are a multitude of other factors within an RTO's edtech ecosystem that trainers/assessors need to be up to speed with and for which they must have the correct digital skills to effectively perform their role.

Without doubt a trainer's efficacy in the digital space relies on strategic leadership too, with support to recognise the importance of digital skills training and ways to strategically build contemporary capabilities.
