The new online learning (OL) program is designed to complement the Institute's residential training program. Online courses, which have the advantage of allowing participants to learn at their own pace, will feature recorded clips of lectures interspersed with interactive quizzes and hands-on exercises. Courses will also include a discussion forum to allow participants to network and discuss the course content.

Online learning will increasingly provide a "blended learning" experience, where participants will complete interactive, online learning modules in advance of attending the Institute's face-to-face training. Participants will also be able to take online courses as stand-alone learning experiences.

One major advantage of the online program is the ability to offer courses to all interested government officials, free of enrollment limits. At times, these courses will be opened to the general public as massive open online courses (MOOCs). Each catalog listing will indicate the audience. Government officials may choose to register for MOOCs or for courses targeted only at officials.

At this time, all online courses are offered in English only, with the exception of Financial Programming and Policies, Part 1: Macroeconomic Accounts and Analysis (FPP.1x) which is offered in English and French. As online courses become available in other languages in the future, they will be listed under the course offerings tab.

Selection Process:

Online courses are free and open to all government officials regardless of agency. All who register will be admitted--there are no limits by country or agency. Sponsor contact information is requested in the online application, but formal sponsor approval is not required.

Online courses require a reliable internet connection and may also require software such as Excel or EViews. Individual course descriptions will include such requirements as well as the length of the course and the expected workload in hours per week.
