World Bank Institute Launches “e-Institute” : A Virtual Classroom

Filed under: Compliance Training — inece @ 6:11 am

On July 13, 2011, the e-Institute – http://einstitute.worldbank.org/– World Bank’s global learning platform – went live. The e-Institute, led by the World Bank Institute, will offer practitioners a virtual classroom to share high quality learning and knowledge resources.

Many development practitioners around the world do not have easy access to cutting-edge learning. Available courses are usually not customized to local realities and potential participants have no budget to travel to a central location. Many struggle with problems similar to their peers in other developing countries but they have no platform to connect with each other and get feedback on their issues and concerns.

Taking advantage of new technologies, this learning experience will be affordable, innovative, and practitioner-focused. The e-Institute will also provide a one-stop shop portal – http://einstitute.worldbank.org/ – with a calendar to view the e-course offerings, monthly webinars, online learning communities, interviews, and multimedia.
