SKILL aims to provide people involved in the ICT field (or willinging to be involved), mainly in SMEs, with the resources needed to enhance their soft skills fulfilling the segment’s demand.
Soft skills are usually under looked as a course topic in VET schools for ICT sector, where the emphasis was usually on the technical skills. We needed to decide on the best methodology to teach soft skills to ICT students and professionals in an engaing and interactive way.
We decided to utilize Rise 360, a responsive course authoring tool and embed the interactive course materials, branching scenarios and game elements in a website designed by us.
After interacting with the materials, ICT sector professionals and VET students that seek employment in ICT sector shared that they have more confidence in themselves in solving problems, taking initiatives and better connecting with their peers.
