Finding a job when you don’t have one is difficult enough, but I’m still waiting for more support from all the technology that is allegedly available to us.
Indeed is yet another online job-search portal, claiming of course to be the largest in the world, present in over 50 countries and available in 28 languages. When you simply go to the main site, you get redirected to the language of your local provider’s server. If you’re an English-only speaker in a foreign country, you might have trouble finding what you’re looking for. Technology that supports allows for user interaction. The ability to select one’s langauge of choice and country of choice would be a place to start. In this regard, the portal isn’t all that different than most portals I’ve seen.
Being interested in the state of available e-learning jobs in Germany, I simply punched in « e-learning » as my only search criteria. I was shown a list of over 750 jobs, which is actually very impressive until you take a closer look. There was a number of sales and marketing jobs included, but not necessarily with e-learning companies or directly related to the topic itself. There was also sound portiong of project-manager positions, also not necessarily related to e-learning, and, not unexpectedly, jobs for teachers and trainers in general were included.
While being fully aware that searching for anything can be an arduous task, I still think it’s a good idea to provide real support if you’re claiming to want to help. Better filtering, more options, readily available, and erring on the conservative side are all part of this. There’s a lot to be found on the portal, that’s for sure, but you still have to put in a good amount of effort to find what you’re really looking for.
The workshop on e-Learning, organised in the framework of the Lifelong Learning project eVirtue by the Economic University of Wroclaw, gave interesting insights into the latest trends of e-Learning. With regard to language learning, two approaches were identified:
« For e-Learning there is the tutorial and instrumental approach in using technology: for the latter, the teacher is still there, We do not need to use machine translation, computer is just a window to the outside world. There is little room for translation tools or voice recognition tool. There is a lot of it, though, in the tutorial approach: in absence of a teacher and the community, the PC has to take over that role« , says Robert Debski, Jagellon University of Cracow.
