This training included with introduction to what e-learning and knowing the clear e-learning objectives, what it is requires in terms of time allocation, equipment, teaching, and course evaluation, the clear shortfalls of blended and face to face learning and so much more.

This was a face-to-face workshop that was hosted at the Makerere University School of Public Health (MakSPH) boardroom. Up to 14 faculties and 27 students were trained. A few people on the team have had experience in e-Learning while majority had not been exposed to eLearning until this activity especially the students.
