Online Learning Systems | Webinar

Project: Learning ProjectShifting The Power 17th November 2017



We are increasingly using technology to help us in our humanitarian work, and online spaces are a good way to combat the issues associated with working in remote teams, connecting people from different locations, organisations and cultures. This can also be used for storing and sharing knowledge, evidence and learning, and as alternative ways of delivering courses.

In the last webinar of the Learning Series, we explored the merits, limitations and challenges of online learning systems.

Looking back over the development process, roll-out and use of two humanitarian learning platforms, the speakers shared what they’ve learned, what they would replicate and what they would do differently, comparing differences and similarities between a global and a national platform. We took a practical view and gave recommendations for those in the process of or planning to embark on a similar process.

The global disaster preparedness Learning Platform was presented by Ida Aagenaes from the DEPP Learning Project, and
The national platform for Pakistan, the Digital Resource Centre developed by the National Humanitarian Network Pakistan, was presented by Sana Zulfiqar supported by Muhammad Hamayun

We also looked at the challenges of engaging users, platform sustainability, and the benefits and limitations of platform created for a national and global audiences. We will continue these discussions in the forum, so please do check in and add your voice to the conversation.
