Now in its third year, the competition provides volunteers from the eLearning community with an opportunity to donate their expertise, working with international non-profit organisations to develop state of the art online courses. This helps charity staff working around the World do their work in the fields of humanitarian relief, development, conservation and social justice even better.
In the last three years of the competition, created by the eLearning Guild and LINGOs, more than 90 courses have been developed.
Martin Baker, an Ambassador for LINGOs, and a member of the eLearning Global Giveback Competition judging panel, said: “This is a tremendous achievement, to have so many courses developed in the last three years by the eLearning community specifically for charities. It’s a great example of what can be achieved by working together. I congratulate each and every person – winner or not - who took the time to donate their expertise, skills and knowledge to this very worthwhile cause.”
This year’s finalists included volunteer teams from the United Kingdom, United States, Canada, South Africa, and beyond, working for agencies that include Save the Children and the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative. The complete list of finalist courses and the volunteers which created them are on the LINGOs website.
Overall winner Amanda Warner created a course for the humanitarian development agency FHI 360. The course introduces learners to the World Health Organisation’
LINGOs’ Executive Director Eric Berg commented: “Together these volunteers have developed over 90 courses in the past three years, resulting in invaluable improvements in the impact of their programs in humanitarian relief, development, conservation, and social justice.”
The winners were announced today at the eLearning Guild's Learning Solutions Conference and Expo in Florida.
