This is something I talked about three months ago and then uploaded in my articles section an article about e-learning for nonprofits, based on F/OSS e-learning platforms, free (licensed) content and virtual volunteers. Unfortunately, at least for some of you ;), it was only in Spanish.

Still having to find the time to translate it, I did find the time to put it in a simple image.

The question is that, simplifying to the maximum, an e-learning course for nonprofits – and for whoever – can be done with three main pillars or pieces of the puzzle, and that these pieces can be at zero cost:

If you can’t read the image, the pieces are:

Human Resources

e-learning platform (LMS)
Campus for Peace

Creative Commons
Project Gutenberg

Not very elaborated, but wasn’t I supposed to keep it simple? :P

If you need to cite this article in a formal way (i.e. for bibliographical purposes) I dare suggest:
