The annual ICT4D Conferences have proven to be an invaluable opportunity for NGOs, private sector organizations, universities, governmental agencies and foundations to share their experience in using ICT to increase the impact of development programs and to learn from each other. In 2016, 750 individuals from 76 countries and 320 private sector and public sector and civil society explored the ways to harness the full power of digital solutions to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. Our thanks to Accenture, Catholic Relief Services, Esri, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, iMerit Technology Services, Inmarsat, IS Solutions, Making All Voices Count, Mercy Corps, Microsoft, NetHope, Oxfam, Pandexio, Qualcom Wireless Reach, RTI International, SimbaNet and World Vision for making that possible.
Time has come to weed out the conventional ways of presentation. Learners want control; eLearning allows to offer control that classroom learning doesn't. It also becomes a source of education where it reaches out to millions who have limited or little access to institutional education for helping and educating marginalized communities for better health and hygiene habits. One of the most common scenarios for e-learning is to take an existing content in various formats and convert it to an e-learning course and place it virtually. The benefit to this approach is that you can make the course seem more compressed and it gives the learner as well as the presenter easier navigation. Also you may easily access the e-learning link from your mobile, laptop instead of using the heavy Power point slides. This works well if you have a mix of new and old learners who need different levels of information.
iMerit here becomes the source of building these e-learning courses through conversion, testing and redesigning by using various eLearning tools partnering with other organizations to support them and provide a bigger impact for a larger community of people.
eLearning has to be interactive, that’s the goal of this training session. Come ready with your innovative thoughts, let's together create an impact!
