Online Learning Framework & Toolkit

Developing online learning solutions at the United Nations 

The Online Learning Framework is a set of tools and recommendations that provides guidance and promotes shared standards for the development of online learning products at the United Nations. 

The Framework is based on the principles of the ADDIE model and offers a systematic approach to analysing needs, designing and developing curricula and implementing and evaluating learning solutions in the UN context. The model gives you a streamlined, focused approach that provides feedback for continuous improvement.
