Online Academies

Are there any DHIS2 MOOCs available or in planning? One of the issues I know a lot of partners are having is finding the budget to send staff to attend academies in person. Not as much the cost of the academy itself but the travel and the frequency – it’s very hard to plan a project around that sort of schedule and staff turnover / training new staff can be a real challenge.

A distance learning system would be fantastic, particularly if official certification can be issued on completion. Even if staff can be sent to a regional centre to write an exam after self study (such as Unisa do in South Africa), it would be a major cost saving and allow projects to have more staff certified – something I believe would benefit the community immensely.

Dear Knut,

Thanks for the reminder because i had completed this course long ago
and it is only now i noticed that i had never requested for my
certificate.

Edward,
I think you staff can try this program and it is very interactive.
Wishing them all the best anyway.

Thanks Knut for the reminder

Thanks again, Knut, this is very promising! Is there a schedule of when new courses are planned?

I’m curious about the requirement for a clear start / end date for online self-paced training. It would be great if anyone could join at any time (within reason) and perhaps write an exam at a set point in time, though I may be misunderstanding the purpose (e.g. if they include real-time coaching).
