Marketing Text The report gives a summary of how the modules were piloted and tested by the target group in the innovation importing countries
Description Pilot testing was one of the most important work packages in the HENGE Project. This work package reflected the development of the definitive structure of the training course. The piloting tested the product quality, the effectiveness of the product and the accessibility, user‐friendliness of the e‐learning platform. The pilot allowed the partnership to tailor, fine-tune and integrate the training material to the target group needs. Once completed the information gathered was delivered in a report.
Target group Stakeholders, end users
Participants mostly attend the trainings for new ideas, business possibilities and information about green skills. Of the options excellent, good, average, poor, 52% rated the course content excellent; 48% rated it good. As for the training platform 33% rated it excellent and 65% considered it good.
Asked if they would visit the HENGE training platform again, 94% stated they would and 98% would recommend the training platform to others. Some trainees requested the course be converted to an application. The results were considered very good. This was considered a very positive result at the piloting stage.
Area of application
The Pilot testing methodology aimed to create a common framework for the four partners who implemented the pilot course in order to test:
-The product quality
-The product effectiveness
-The way the e-learning instrument answered the target group needs
-If the instrument were easy to use for entrepreneurs in rural areas
The pilot group, in each centre, included women and at least one person with a disability. A blended approach was used with 9 learners in each piloting centre and 3 on‐line self learning participants tested in a blank environment without a trainer.
Modules 1 and 2 were common to the 4 partners and modules 5, 6, 7, 8 were tested individually, one by each partner.
.All the test run surveys were uploaded to the surveymonkey.com. Tarsus CCI, as work package leader, gathered and analyzed the related answers and wrote a report on the outcomes. This has added value to the training materials and increased the quality of the content. The platform was revised to make it more accessible and easy to use
