Innovation - Micro-grants for learning
The third example of good practice financed by the innovation fund is the project on Micro-grants for learning.
The objective of this project was to explore crowdfunding as a fundraising method to develop learning products.
The research on crowdfunding commissioned as part of this project in 2013 led to a new massive open online course (MOOC) on crowdfunding for development, included in the 2015 catalogue of open courses. It will be the first MOOC offered by the Centre. A decision on the rollout of this new learning method will be subject to the outcome of the pilot.
