Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic which resulted in the declaration of the State of National Disaster by the President and an extended recess for TVET Colleges’ students, the use of online learning has since taken centre stage. The Minister of Higher Education, Science and Technology have also mandated institutions to move their programmes online to help prevent the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19. Online learning involves the offering of educational programmes through internet platforms. Different approaches are followed when facilitating learning online which include distance learning and blended learning modes. This session will focus on the preparedness of public TVET Colleges in South Africa to facilitate teaching and learning online.
