Revisiting the world of education ahead of some workshops we are doing in Nigeria and Cambodia where we discuss using open learning as a professional development strategy, (along with some modules on secure communication, online research, and developing an online presence), I wanted to highlight an organization that has done some good work in this area. The World Bank recently launched the Open Learning Campus, a clearinghouse of sorts for all their open learning materials, courses, and talks. While many organizations are doing this type of thing, a welcome trend, I particularly find the World Bank’s approach to be clever in that they are grounding the structure itself on theory. While some implicitly do the same (and many not at all), it is refreshing to see here.
