Use of eLearning in humanitarian work rated positively

London | A recent five-year report, “Pilot evaluation to assess the impact of e-learning on humanitarian aid work “, published by the Humanitarian Leadership Academy, Medair, and HumanitarianU, a social enterprise, shows promising signs of performance improvement through the use of competence-based e-learning training in humanitarian work.  According to the authors, this is the first survey to examine the impact of eLearning on humanitarian aid, and further surveys are desirable. According to the Humanitarian Leadership Academy, eLearning in this field of work is particularly efficient because it is well suited to promoting individual learning. Moreover, learning is in principle possible worldwide. The study would have shown that participants in corresponding eLearnings in practical use would have delivered a clearly higher quality of work than the comparison group of non-participants. The report of the Humanitarian Leadership Academy et al. does not remain exclusively with an analysis, but also draws up a list of requirements on this basis. According to the study authors, aid organizations should ensure that learning processes are managed more consciously than in the past and that in-company training as a whole is given high priority in the future in order to be able to professionalize the work itself. This, in turn, should benefit the general public due to the field of activity of humanitarian organizations.
