Launch of IFLA Online Learning Platform
IFLA is pleased to announce the launch of the first stage of the Online Learning Platform, a new section of its website that makes available training materials in a dedicated learning environment. Initially, the five Building Strong Library Associations (BSLA) modules will be available through the platform, with specialist modules and other training materials to follow.
Powered by the open source learning platform, Moodle, the website allows IFLA members to:
- Download high-quality training materials and case studies
- Participate in online learning activities and discussions
- Contribute their stories of how they have used the programme
The online learning platform will be a significant new resource for all of IFLA’s members. Beginning in November 2010, IFLA will make available a growing number of downloadable resources, and interactive learning activities. Content will be continually rolled out, with each Building Strong Library Associations module available for download at launch. From February 2011, all five modules will be complemented by a range of blended learning content, quizzes, and activities.
The launch of the Online Learning Platform also includes more than 20 high-quality, research-based case studies that illustrate examples of the work of library associations around the world. This resource will continue to grow, and IFLA will actively seek out examples of innovation from associations.
More information about the contents available and access to the platform are available on the IFLA website.
