This site has been established by the People's Open Access Education Initiative (Peoples-uni) to help build workforce capacity through Open Online Courses, available free for self-study.
Open Online Courses are short and designed for self-study. They are available free and can be accessed by anyone. Most offer a certificate. Some of the courses have been developed by partner organisations. We aim to go beyond hosting these courses, and intend to work with partners to create a systematic process for high quality, bespoke, lifelong learning.
A new model for global learning envisages: education moving from local to global; professionals needing to be lifelong learners; progressive implementation of learning; and educational innovation utilising opportunities offered by the Internet, Open Educational Resources and volunteers. The Programme will support the implementation of Sustainable Development Goals and promote Universal Health Coverage, as well as contributing to global workforce demands.
Note for potential partners
We wish to collaborate with ‘like-minded’ partners to take forward this model and are keen on co-development. Apart from basic hosting of material, we can create specific ‘learning networks’. We wish to populate the site further - please contact us through 'Contact us...' below to discuss how to add your own courses or material, or work with us.
