Abstract

This is a case analysis on the application of a Multimodal Model for Online Education in the conduct of a Capacity Building Program for Library Paraprofessionals in the Philippines. It investigates how the model addressed the varying capabilities of the participants in terms of content knowledge and skills and their technological capabilities and resources.


Findings show that despite meeting all the necessary elements to achieve an effective learning environment, particularly in the design of the training program, certain factors could lead to not fully achieving an effective learning environment.
