Can Studios are delighted to be helping The University of the West Indies, a key partner in the noble project “AYITIC Goes Global”.
The project will be training young Haitians, with a special focus on women, with the digital skills and data literacy needed for employment in the digital economy. Given the resource constraints in Haiti, the project will be trying to determine the most effective pedagogical mechanisms to provide for on-line / off-line delivery modes, including the use of the mobile phone as a learning platform. Research led the project to favour the ADAPT learning platform as the basis for building an effective blended learning strategy.
The University will be using student resources to develop learning content both at the University in Jamaica, as well as in Haiti. Can Studios are providing a hosted instance of the Adapt authoring tool to allow authors to work from any location as well as training and support.
“The project “AYITIC Goes Global: Empowering Women through Digital Markets” in Haiti, confronts the challenge of the sustainable delivery of online digital skills training in a resource-constrained environment. Our search for a flexible training delivery platform that would enable on-line / off-line access modes and allow for limited bandwidth infrastructure with intermittent availability, led us to select the ADAPT Authoring Tool for developing engaging, responsive eLearning content, and Can Studios as our hosting and technology support partner”
