The success of development initiatives is dependent largely on the capabilities of the people who organize them. With their busy schedules, many of these professionals find it difficult to attend face-to-face seminars. This is where e-learning comes in. The UP Open University has partnered with national and international development agencies in developing and delivering online courses for professionals in several sectors – health, education, public service, and environment management. These online courses have not only equipped professionals with the required skills but also linked them to peers from all over the country.
