Arabic eCourse: Prototype with Participants from Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, and Palestine

From September 5 to October 21, 2005, a group of 14 experienced leadership trainers from Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco and Palestine participated in a five-week prototype Arabic eCourse to test and adapt the Arabic curriculum in preparation for a full eCourse in 2006.

WLP trained partners from Morocco and Lebanon to act as facilitators for the upcoming course, focusing on use of the course technology and the interactive, problem-solving methodology that guides the course.

At the end of the prototype Arabic eCourse the group strategized on ways to ensure maximum impact for the full eCourse in 2006. They decided to build on the strengths of the curriculum and innovative approach by recruiting a diverse group of committed participants and providing strong technical support to ensure participant comfort during their first online learning experience.
