New blog-based website: Design, development and training
The client needed to set up a new blog to support and promote his successful business. Architela was engaged to set up the blog and create the initial content. We set up domain name, hosting, implemented the blog database, modified the template design, steered the client toward promotion and monetisation tools and repurposed his resources (photos, brochures and guides) into pages and blog posts. Once this was done, we succeeded in training the client on all the tasks he needed to maintain the site and create new content. The site has now been running for three years, and he has gone from strength to strength - expanding his content and his reach on a very small annual budget.
School Inset Training: Workshop Facilitator
The client needed to improve the ICT skills of teachers, who would be required to learn a new Management Information System. Before they could expect to learn the new system, they needed to be upskilled on basic educational ICT tasks. Architela was engaged to run a series of workshops during INSET days on sending email attachments, creating PowerPoint presentations and using the interactive whiteboard. We ran a "clinic" style training programme that included demonstration, small-group breakout sessions and one-to-one training. By the end of the workshops, we had succeeded in bridging the skills gap for the majority of attendees.
Online Learning Module: Online Facilitator
The client wanted to maximise the learning potential of an online module that formed part of an in-house management training programme for global managers. Architela was engaged to facilitate ther module on cross-cultural communication. We facilitated 22 active participants; initiated online discussions; provided consultancy to the Online Programme Manager; guided discussions & encouraged deeper thinking.
