Global Giveback 2013

One of the best take-aways from the e-Learning Guild's Learning Solutions 2013 conference was the opportunity to join fellow instructional designers around the world in volunteering to design e-courses for Nongovernment Organizations (NGOs) doing good work in developing nations.
LINGOs is a not-for-profit consortium of over 75 international humanitarian relief, development, conservation and social justice organizations that share learning resources and experiences. By providing the latest learning technologies and courses from our partners, LINGOs helps our member nonprofits to increase the skill levels of their employees, and therefore increase the impact of their programs.

You can connect with LINGOs and the Global Giveback 2013 initiative by joining the Global Giveback group at LinkedIn. It's a great way to build a portfolio, network with colleagues and do good work in developing nations from the relative comfort of your first world environment!

Courses designed for this initiative may be entered in an annual competition which recognizes excellence in volunteer course design from across the NGO sector. The Last Mile Learning Library provides a great peek into the curriculum and an overview of the four certificates currently offered to staff of NGOs across the globe.
