This is a global goal, a goal to want to reach the completion of the project. • The specific objectives refer to more specific actions are necess ary to meet or developed to achieve the overall objective proposed. Is written i n terms of a logical order of actions. Project Planning "Implementation of Virtual Training System for the enhancement of the skills of teachers of the National University Andina" General Objectives: • Implement the Virtual Training System for the enhancement of the skills of teachers in the Andean nation University Specific Objectives: 2 . Implementing virtual training platform through a learning management system Project Planning 1. Structuring the pedagogical design for work in virtual learning environments according to the nature of content 2. Develop the organizational structure of ad ministrative and academic Virtual Training System 3. Train the trainers for the development of computerized instructional materials and management of virtual di stance learning. 4. Train teachers in virtually modern methodologies for the dev elopment of learning activities Project Planning 3. Universe of Users: Users • Identify beneficiaries, institutions, communities to whom they are directed the project. • Define the roles, needs, constraints, s trengths and expectations of beneficiaries. A). Participants. (Teachers). It consists of the 345 teaching staff Andean nation, which have no educational t raining and work in appointed and contracted condition. Participants have the ne ed to acquire skills in the methodology of teaching and learning in technical, c ommercial and health€the nature of their work prevents them from attending train ing in person. Project Planning B). Tutors (trainers). The trainers are professionals with training and experience in teaching and lear ning methodology, but have no background in distance education systems, virtual, and therefore require action will be trained in virtual tutoring 4. Project Definition: • • This is a detailed and concise description of the actions ordered in time fo r the achievement of individual objectives. It is advisable to divide the projec t into phases of work Project Planning To meet Goal 1: • • • Select the LMS that fits the educational needs of the institution determin e the technological and technical requirements for the installation of LMS LMS C ustomize according to the educational needs of the institution and participants characteristics. Structure-based learning methodology in the mediation of the co mputer resources of the LMS determine the content and activities developed to im prove teaching skills. Develop instructional materials in digital formats for di stribution by the LMS To meet the objective 2: • • •

Project Planning 5. Defining the content: • According to the nature and scope of the project obje ctives are presented by content areas to develop The methods and learning techniques • • • • Methods for the development of thinking global learning methods and prod uctive information-processing techniques applied learning techniques Project Planning 6. Technical model of teaching: • • Structure the pedagogical model of the application of technologies in the te aching - learning, according to the user characteristics determine the design of materials or resources needed for educational use of ICTs. The teaching model is based on face no synchronous and asynchronous activities i n a constructivist learning framework, where the teachers act as facilitators of learning, by providing self-instructive and further reading material with which students interact to generate knowledge through virtual discussions and academi c activities (Webquest, portfolios, assignments, workshops, forums, etc). Project Planning Teacher Interaction Student Bibliography Materials Original material structure Assisted Learning with learning resources in digital form, summaries, concept maps, glossaries, recommended online. Project Planning 7. Tool definitions: • • Determine and define the technical characteristics of the tools necessary to manage the EA process and describe the basic technical requirements of users fo r the use of the tools The platform should be allowed to have the following areas: administration, educ ation or activities, assessments, work groups, resources or materials and access to the WWW, enabling to support the work within the framework of constructivist education. With a philosophy of work that requires minimal information. Project Planning 8. Definition of the platform: • Describe the organization of the implementation of technological infrastructure (equipment, environments, programs, connectivit y, organizational structure) It requires the implementation of a LAN for central management of virtual traini ng with Internet access steadily and the creation of centers of academic and adm inistrative support at headquarters Lan Network - Server - PC's Project Planning Communication structure of the system Project Planning Structure of the virtual training center Project Planning 9. Evaluation methodology and quality control: • • Determine criteria or aspects to be evaluated (impact, use and relevance of the tools and methodologies implemented) Determine the evaluation period (one ev ery year or every 3months) Annual assessment of the following • Assessment Tools. Understand the impact ass essment, use and relevance of the tool by users and tutors. • Evaluation of the

Methodology. Referring to the evaluation of the methodologies introduced in the teaching - learning Non-virtual and the achievement of learning. • Project Evalu ation. It includes the assessment of the achievement of targets set for each sta ge of project implementation Project Planning 10. Definition of terms and phases of implementation: • Description of the stages of implementation or project implementation, activit ies and time required. Project Planning I Stage. Implementation of the Infostructure Time Required: 45 days Activities: Implementing the Virtual Training Center: equipment, organization, implementatio n of the virtual platform of Phase II training. Design of the pedagogical model Time Required: 45 days Activities: Determine the contents, working methods Prepa ration of guides and study materials Project Planning 11. Definition of cycles of renewal and update: • • It requires consideration of the renewal periods of the resources, elements of the project to provide continuity over time. It is recommended to project the costs of maintenance, renewal and annual update of 35%. Renovation Hardware - Servers 18 months - 12 months Renewal Personal Computer So ftware - Operating Systems for version change - content management system (LMS) for version change Equipment Maintenance - Preventive every three months Project Planning 12. Definition of personnel and human resources: • Need to determine qualitative (profiles) and quantitative (amount and time) th e human resource needed for each stage of the project. Platform Manager virtual person with knowledge of network administration, respon sible for providing support, maintenance and administration of LMS, Internet too ls (e-mail, NetMeeting Project Planning 13. Costing and financing: • • Preparation of the budget based on resources, measured in quantity, time and costs. Costs can be of three types: Investment-Durable goods needed to run the project (equipment and infrastructure), are acquired only once for the entire pr oject life cycle-Operation Inputs and incidentals that are made during the proje ct (office supplies, rents, licenses, travel expenses) are expenses are not expe ndable and durable over time. Personal-fees are costs to individuals during the project implementation Project Planning Project Planning 14. Schedule or array of activities • • • Presentation of the activities or tasks according to time during the proje ct cycle. It is necessary to define the tasks and subtasks their precedence and sequence. There may be a Gantt chart or diagram Pert Pert Diagram. It is a graphical representation of the relationships between proj ect tasks for calculating the time the project easily. Project Planning 14. Schedule or array of activities • • Gantt Chart Graphic representation of the tasks on a time scale. The tasks a re represented as maintaining the scale bar on the proportionality between their

durations and their graphic representation, and its position on the origin poin t of the project. Details the tasks that can be developed in parallel and which tasks are necessary for others. • Project Planning Project Planning 14. Schedule or array of activities If you can not plan, let alone what you are able to do. "Anonymous " Thanks
