An Online Community Framework to Improve Instructional Design and Track Training Outcomes for Contractors and Small Mine Operators

This program developed a framework for on-demand access to training materials and instruction, coupled with cloud-based tracking and assessment, to augment the training capacity of contractors and small mine operators. The three specific aims of this project included the following: 1) Provide an online community repository of active learning resources with new materials for conveyor maintenance, powered haulage, and electrical hazards; 2) Enhance the instructional design and delivery capabilities of trainers through online tutorials and programs; and 3) Deploy a technology-enabled assessment framework to evaluate training competency and track worker safety and health outcomes. 

This project was funded by the Mine Safety & Health Administration.
