About the Course

The course will be available on the ITOCA Moodle platform from 18 May 2015 to 18 June 2015, and will be offered in English. This 'AGORA Basic Course' is for individuals from AGORA registered institutions. It is an overview of the 3 day AGORA 'Train the Trainers' workshop and highlights key skills that are necessary for the efficient and effective use of the resources in the Programme.

Participants must be from AGORA registered institutions. This is a self-paced distance learning course, and the estimated time to complete the course is 6-8 hours. What that means is that, at your own pace, you can complete the AGORA 'Basic Course' and the attached exercises. It does not have to be done in one session. The course would be useful to users to improve their skills and trainers who are interested in conducting brief courses at their institutions. It is free.
