Using an eWorkshop to initiate or enrich a community

One of our new clients, a small NGO with a wide network of local partners in Africa and Latin America is building an e-learning program from scratch. The Moodle site is up and running and now we’re brainstorming on how best to structure the platform to support the needs of the organisation and its partners.

We talk about how great it would be if all their local partners would continuously share their expertise and experiences. The organisation’s sub-sector is complex and their mission is to stop harmful traditions. Helping their partners to make a difference involves deep learning – together.

In the past, they have made attempts to bring their many partners together by building online spaces. These spaces have never really taken off, yet whenever there is a face-to-face get-together there is great enthusiasm for learning from each other and a call to continue remotely through a community of practice (CoP).  And then it goes quiet again. It’s so common. The solution is simple, but not easy.
