Helping NGOs do more with their money

Never too old to learn new (elearning) tricks!

For many, the term 'elearning' brings to mind dry, boring webinars that do little to inspire or engage participants. If you're responsible for developing training as part of your NGO's capacity building approach, you may already be considering online learning as an option. But how does it work in practice? And are there creative ways to make the online learning environment work for you? In this blog post, Mango's Director of Learning and Development, Terry Lewis, shares some of the discoveries she has made on her own elearning development journey.

 

In the last year I have been on a really exciting and motivating learning journey – finding out all about elearning and working out the best approach for Mango. Here are some of my random discoveries:

And – drum roll – my most important discovery of all...? 

eWorkshops are a truly life-changing discovery for me – who would ever have thought that you can learn with others in a participatory way with a bunch of people based all around the globe, working offline in different time zones? It is amazing, it is fun and it really works! And I am forever grateful to Anouk Janssens-Bevernage at Dynamind-elearning for showing me how it is done.  With her support and guidance, we launched our eWorkshop programme this year with our Planning for financial sustainability course. 

I am so inspired by the potential of elearning that I am going to include this as a new topic in our Taking the fear out of finance (Training for Finance Trainers) course too. I am running the next event in London from 22-25 June, if you or any of your finance colleagues would like to join me and be inspired too! 

 

* PS: In case you were wondering, a MOOC is a 'massive open online course'.  I learnt that too.
