Learning is Just a Click Away
This learning brief introduces ANSA-EAP's online learning program, one of the modalities being developed and used by ANSA EAP to build partner's capacities on social accountability. It will explain how the modality is put into practice, what programs have been realized and what lessons were taken from the process.
What is an online learning program? Simply put, it is a program or strategy that makes use of web-based learning approaches and other information and communication technologies (ICTs) to teach social accountability (SAc). This can include the use of something as simple as e-mail to the more complex discussion forums, video video conferencing, online chats, blogging and
the sharing of electronic files.
ANSA-EAP envisions competent and empowered communities who are dedicated and passionate about promoting capable, effective, and accountable governments through social accountability. But because development issues are so multi-faceted, there is a need to bring together groups of people from different countries, countries, different educational backgrounds and different organizaƟ ons into one netw ork. Online learning broadens the reach of capacity building for social accountability. Cyberspace allows for a world with no differences and no boundaries, thus allow ing more learners per organization, more organizations per region and infinitely more opportunities for learning.
