We thought this was pretty cool. Above is an interactive map created using Google Fusion Tables of the locations of Participants of Village Earth/CSU’s online Certificate Program in Sustainable Community-Based Development (SCBD). Each red dot represents one or more participants in 77 different countries. The SCBD Certificate Program is a non-credit practitioner-focused program consisting of 23 courses focused on the practical implementation of rights-based, community-driven development. Each course is 5-weeks and follows a seminar format with course-work being completed on the participant’s own schedule (and time-zone). Registration for the next session ends August 4th.
This course covers the principles of using technology effectively in community development, and uses examples and case studies to illustrate successful technology implementations.
