SKILLS DEVELOPMENT TRAINING THOUGH E-LEARNING
• Accredited skills development providers are required to transition into a hybrid of training (mix online and classroom) with the aim of embracing e-learning fully
• E-learning to promote access to education
• E-learning to ultimately get rid of rural urban divide
• Also, e-learning will transform services into full automation of quality assurance function
