UNU E-Learning Strategy
UNU aims to develop, implement and improve innovative capacity development methodologies by using e-learning. The section collaborates with the UNU headquarters and the UNU Online Media Studio, as well as all UNU Research and Training Centres and Programmes (RTC/Ps) concerned with e-learning worldwide to build a UNU consolidated strategic approach for the implementation of e-learning in the field of capacity development.
UNU as a networked organization can build upon available initial experiences and existing expertise to elaborate a holistic UNU capacity development service portfolio that develops, implements and improves innovative capacity development methodologies using e-learning and ICT. By convening a strategic workshop on “Innovative Capacity Development Through E-learning with a Special Focus on Africa” from 26-27 November 2008 at the UN Campus Bonn, Germany, in collaboration with the UNU headquarters and the UNU Online Media Studio, the section made a decisive effort to bring together all UNU Research and Training Centres and Programmes concerned with e-learning worldwide to build a UNU consolidated strategic approach to e-learning for capacity development.
