With the generous support of the Hurford Foundation, Kabissa is carrying out a pilot project this year to explore ways to extend the benefits of our Time To Get Online training program with more Kabissa members through E-Learning. E-learning, courses conducted mainly over the Internet and/or on a computer, can give a tremendous boost to African organizations seeking to make more effective use of ICT. The two e-learning courses we developed and are piloting, in response to a poll of our members, are:
- Running an Online Course
- Emerging technologies
The first course was run via two Google Groups itself and has been completed successfully by two sets of participants, one in East Africa and the other in Nigeria. The second will be provided as a self-paced online course via our new online community site. A full report on the outcomes of the pilot project will be published in January. In the meantime, the executive summary of our proposal to the Hurford Foundation is published below.
