The UN Technology Bank and Research4Life are excited to collaborate in supporting the delivery of online training activities for the 46 least developed countries to enhance access to recent scientific knowledge, and thus give them the opportunity to participate fully in the global scientific community.  

The Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) will be delivered with the objective of equipping researchers in educational, research, and policy institutions in these countries with the knowledge and the skills required to access and use information effectively and efficiently.  

This course was developed for librarians, information professionals, IT specialists, researchers, academics, lecturers, educators, students including graduates and post graduates, and professionals, such as doctors, policy makers, extensionists, lawyers, social workers and statisticians in the eligible countries and institutions. 

Participants are expected to spend on average six to eight hours per week on lessons and activities, such as contributing to discussion forums and webinars.
