Online Learning

To supplement face-to-face training, several JVI members are offering online learning programs and tools to supplement face-to-face delivery. Typically they feature recorded clips of lectures interspersed with interactive quizzes and hands-on exercises. Courses may also include a discussion forum to allow participants to network and discuss the course content.

International Monetary Fund
The IMF’s Institute for Capacity Development is developing a new online learning program in partnership with edX, the non-profit online learning initiative founded in 2012 by Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The aim is to expand the reach of its training program to member country officials and to offer access to a wider audience through so-called massive open online courses (MOOCs). In addition, a number of shorter online modules have already been integrated in selected training courses. The new online learning program is designed to complement the Institute's residential training program.

The IMF Statistics department also offers a range of e-learning videos on ever-expanding topics.

Austrian Authorities
This course familiarizes participants with the budget reform process in Austria.

The Trade Finance e-Learning Programme, jointly launched by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) in May 2010, aims to help issuing banks involved in the EBRD's Trade Facilitation Programme (TFP) to attain best international practice in trade finance, through building a firm understanding of ICC trade rules and achievement of academic excellence.

World Bank
World Bank e-Institute - a global portal, designed to support self-motivated learners who want to get up to speed on the latest development trends, enhance their skills, and share knowledge through online learning communities. More than forty-five e-Learning courses address complex real-world problems in priority areas such as governance, health, cities, climate change, and public private partnerships.
