The Open Learning Campus is an online destination for development learning that will build the leadership and technical capabilities of all development stakeholders—partners, practitioners, policy makers, staff and the public. With the OLC you can access development lessons captured in easy to understand and versatile formats – from bite-sized lessons to full-length courses, and MOOCs to peer learning conversations. With these tools you can access the information you need to better help you understand disaster risk management, health policy reform or any of your other learning needs as a development professional.

The OLC will be launched at an event discussing the future of development learning. This conversation will be moderated by NY Times columnist Thomas Friedman, and panelists include World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim and edX CEO Anant Agarwal. The panel discussion will be followed by a series of lightning talks by three young innovators who have changed the landscape in this field.
