dc.description.abstractABSTRACT: This chapter describes the purpose, processes, and effects of an e-learning employment readiness system, ESPORT, currently being pilot tested in Canada. The Essential Skills Portfolio (ESPORT) system is a facilitated and supported Internet-delivered system primarily intended for adults with a high school education or less, intended to assist users to choose an occupation, assess their enabling skills in respect to the chosen occupation, identify and (optionally) remedy skills gaps, and document in a resume their abilities for prospective employers. While this e-learning project was not complete at this writing, this report describes the piloting process, and some already obvious conclusions regarding ESPORT’s technologies, design, delivery, and support models, and training protocols. As anticipated, both the project’s components and the evaluation design have changed, recognizing pressing issues requiring early attention, and responding to lessons learned.en
