RKK’s use of ICT has globalisation in mind: a global job market requires a global learning arena. Learning must also be available to as many people as possible at the right price. Learning is also the key to a good life for most people and must be appropriate to the learner’s life phase. All these factors, we believe, mean that ICT-supported learning must contribute to increased flexibility and cost-effective implementation, including for learners with a low level of technological skills.
RKK has systematically worked towards, and has been quick to use, modern user-friendly technology for the distribution of learning and more efficient use of learning materials.
RKK has, for example, launched the country’s first netbased courses in Health & Care subjects for the public employment services (NAV, formerly Aetat), and for a number of years has run introductory courses for the University of Stavanger. In addition, RKK has developed various continuing education programmes at craft certificate and college level in which ICT plays a key role. Flexibility for many branches also means access to structured study materials offline, i.e. CD/DVD, as a supplement to netbased assignments and follow-up.
