About this Initiative

ItrainOnline is a joint initiative of eight organizations with exceptional expertise in computer and Internet training in the South.

While there is an abundance of information on using ICTs on the web, our experience has shown that is difficult to locate high quality and appropriate information that is suited to the ways development organizations and civil society groups in the South learn about and use ICTs. ItrainOnline responds to the need for a single source on the web containing a selection of the best and most relevant computer and Internet training resources for development and social change.

By pooling our resources to create this site, the ItrainOnline partners can reduce any overlaps in our online content and training programs, learn from each other, and better focus our investments in ICT training. Most importantly, we can ensure that learners and trainers in the South have a convenient entry point on the web for the resources and tools they need.

Objectives and target users

The ItrainOnline initiative aims to assist civil society organizations (CSOs) and other development actors in developing countries to confront the challenges posed by new information and communications technologies (ICTs). In seeking to overcome skills gaps in development, it connects people and know-how with the needs of ICT learners and trainers. ItrainOnline aims:

  • To provide a selection of the best and most relevant computer and Internet training resources for development and social change.
  • To provide access to high quality and appropriate information that is suited to the ways development organizations and civil society groups in the South learn about and use ICTs.
  • To concentrate on training and "how-to" guides for development organizations and civil society groups.

What you'll find

Materials and annotated links to high-quality resources in English, Spanish, French and other languages, on topics ranging from computer and Internet basics to highly technical areas and the ways that civil society and development organizations can increase their impact using these tools.

An Open Content site

ItrainOnline is committed to the free and fair sharing of development information. The information and annotations on our site are free, and can be reproduced, translated, and disseminated without restriction. Most of the material described in the collection is free.
