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.
