A Dynamic Training Aid
The Digital Government video-based microlearning series embodies the benefits of the medium: video has a plurality of uses, and is customizable and modular for different audiences and platforms. DAI and USAID will use these videos in a number of ways, including: sharing on YouTube for the development community and anyone interested in the topic and posting as SCORM modules on USAID’s internal learning management system (USAID University) as a training course for mission and headquarters staff. The videos and the connected training resources will also be used for a training program for Mission staff desiring a deep dive on the topic and its application to their work in-country.
While still early in its implementation, the Digital Government video-based learning series has enabled two key results: 1) The series has helped USAID to capture good practices and highlight successful local projects in a succinct, visually-compelling, easily-digestible format that is highly shareable; 2) The modules set USAID up for success in the rapid onboarding and upskilling of both Mission and HQ staff in this critical area of USAID’s Digital Strategy.
