Why e-learning is needed in the qualification of skilled workers in emerging and developing countries

Well-educated people are the motor for sustainable economic growth and social development. At production and sales locations in emerging and developing countries, companies are often confronted with a shortage of skilled workers. However, vocational training and further education offers in emerging and developing countries rarely offer the necessary quality and hardly meet the requirements of companies. Therefore, the search for qualified specialists in emerging markets also represents a central challenge for Austrian companies, their service and sales partners and often also their customers.

The COVID pandemic has drastically made it clear that there is a lot of catching up to do in digital education and training worldwide. But times of crisis are also times for innovation and adaptation. Many companies and organizations have already recognized the opportunities offered by digital technologies to convey content and expertise in new ways - regardless of time or location. However, such new educational concepts are not simply about transferring analog learning content to the digital world, and not all learning content can be conveyed in this way. In addition, learning content often has to be adapted to different qualification levels, entrepreneurial requirements and regional conditions. Especially in emerging and developing countries, e-learning also encounters technical limits.  

Therefore, the conception, provision and use of e-learning in vocational training and further education in emerging and developing countries requires the bundling of internal specialist expertise, new learning concepts and digital know-how in order to guarantee quality and practical relevance and training and To be able to scale qualification offers cost-effectively. 

The corporAID Multilogue shows what advantages and opportunities arise for companies with e-learning in the qualification of skilled workers, but also where these learning concepts reach their limits. The success factors and challenges of e-learning in emerging and developing countries are discussed and reflected on using practical examples. Discuss with practitioners how digital solutions can be used to improve the qualification of skilled workers in important future markets.
