The IDI has been experimenting with eLearning solutions since 2005. These eLearning solutions have the benefit of reaching a large audience at a low cost. The participants are also not required to leave their regular places of work to attend these courses. Over the years, IDI has tried web-based training, computer based training, using authoring tools to create eLearning packages, self-running e-Learning courses, mentor led eLearning courses and blended programmes. Based on this, the IDI found blended solutions with mentor led eLearning and field audit components to be the best fit for facilitating SAI level outcomes. In 2015 the IDI launched its eLearning Programme: Enhancing eLearning Capacity Programme, to enhance IDI’s own capacity in this area and also to support SAIs and regions with blended learning solutions. Lessons learned in 2016 show that this approach is new for most SAIs and regions. There may also, in some cases, be insufficient resources and readiness at SAI and regional level to adopt such an approach. IDI has received favourable response to its blended learning programmes and there is substantial need in the SAI community. Within the IDI there is an appetite for such engagement and regions have also expressed a need to cooperate on the IDI platform. As such, from 2017, IDI plans to shift focus to strengthen it’s capacity, to support blended learning solutions and focus on those regions and SAIs that display readiness and demand for implementing blended solutions. This programme focuses on developing IDI’s in house capacity for eLearning, facilitating the development of regional and SAI capacity, creating pools of Learning Management System Administrators, eLearning specialists, blended learning specialists, documenting eLearning methodology in an eLearning handbook, supporting SAIs and Regions in eLearning development and delivery as well as creation of an eclectic eLearning portfolio for the IDI over a period of time. The resource pools created will be engaged in design and delivery of all other programmes in the IDI, besides being used by the regions and SAIS. Such blended solutions will include support for ISSAI Implementation, especially a pilot certification programme on INTOSAI Auditor Certification when it is launched.

Programme Implementation Strategy

The programme aims to achieve this objective using the following results framework:

programme results

  1. IDI Learning Management System (LMS) - The IDI will set up its own eLearning portal and learning management system for development and delivery of ecourses, communities of practice as well as other services like online tests, surveys polls, meetings etc.
  2. eLearning Handbook - Besides technology, IDI will also focus on methodology. The IDI will put together a regional resource team to document its eLearning methodology. The methodology will continue to be learner centered, participatory and feature a facilitatory approach involving eLearning mentors. The handbook will be translated into Arabic, French and Spanish.
  3. Certification for eLearning and blended learning Specialists - The IDI will design, develop and deliver a certification programme for eLearning and blended learning specialists. This will be a certification for competency in which a competency framework, syllabus, design and delivery mechanisms and evaluation mechanisms will be put in place. In the first phase eLearning specialists will be certified through a eLearning programme and on the job assignment. They can then apply for the next stage of the programme which will train them as face to face facilitators. Participants that complete the second phase will be certified as blended learning specialists. The existing pool of IDI certified training specialists will also be eligible to apply for eLearning and blended learning specialists programme subject to fulfillment of certain conditions. Passing both evaluations will, however, be necessary before they can be certified as blended learning specialists. These pools of eLearning specialists and blended learning specialists are expected to support design, development and delivery of blended learning solutions at global, regional and SAI level. The programme will be developed in English and then adapted into Arabic, French and Spanish.
  4. Support to regions and SAIs in eLearning Development and Delivery –The IDI will also support regions and SAIs in setting up eLearning by helping establish learning management system, training pools of LMS administrators and helping SAIs train eLearning mentors in case of pilots. The components of such support will depend on the statement of commitments between the IDI and the region or SAI for this purpose.
  5. Portfolio of eLearning Programmes - Over time the IDI will work towards developing a portfolio of eLearning courses that can be delivered on a regular basis. SAIs and regions will also be able to access and use these courses.
