ICT4D Online Course

I’m happy I found Barbara Fillip’s blog, Knowledge for Development , and the site she’s president of, Knowledge for Development, LLC. Both are full of useful information, resources and courses.

One of these courses, ICT4D – Information and Communication Technologies for Development, has its training materials available online.

The modules of the course are:
1. What is ICT4D?
2. What is the Digital Divide?
3. Addressing the Digital Divide
4. ICTs and Learning
5. ICTs for Better Health
6. ICTs and Agriculture
7. eCommerce
8. eGovernance
9. Telecenters
10. Knowledge Networking

All of them have a first part explaining concepts, theory and experiences and after there’s a second part including readings, exercises, a quiz, and external resources. I’m really impressed with the huge amount of good information there and hope I have time these holidays to read all of it. Promise I will.
