Flooring Technology

This project won the award for ‘Excellence in a learning resource’ in the 2014 Australian Institute of Training and Development Awards, announced on 16 October 2014.

The website provides learning materials, self-check exercises and assignments to support a range of competencies from the Certificate III in Flooring Technology.

The text is written in plain English and there is extensive use of photos and line drawings. Each paragraph of main content has a ‘play’ button which allows the user to play the voice-over narration and see an enlarged version of the photo for that paragraph. There are also other presentation options available, including a ‘Slideshow’ version which shows full-sized images and plays the voice as a continuous narration.

The ‘lesson’ pages contain learning activities to reinforce the concepts presented, and there are assignments at the end of each section that can be used for assessment purposes. Interactive exercises are also used throughout the resource, including self-check quizzes, questionnaires, and drag-and-drop style activities.

The overall objective of the resource is to help learners to acquire the underpinning knowledge needed to satisfy the theoretical components of these units. This will assist them when they undertake the practical training on-site. Although the resource is designed specifically for learners with literacy or numeracy difficulties, it is suitable for any apprentices or trainees undertaking the Flooring Technology course.

Each on-line unit is aligned to one or more units of competency, as shown below.
