Aus der Selbstdarstellung:

"UNESCO facilitates a collaborative access to existing free training
courses and promotes open licensed resources to specialized groups and
local communities for development.

The objective behind this platform is to empower trainers or/and
trainees with free resources, offer them a structured collaborative
space to share their training but also to promote and value the
“open” training materials, which are freely and openly
accessible for trainers and self-learners to use and re-use for non
commercial purposes such as teaching, learning and research.

The Communication and Information Sector of UNESCO has been developing
this open training platform available on line, to build capacities of 
local people and specialized communities (Trainers, educators, decision
makers & policy makers, entrepreneurs, farmers, scientists, media
people, librarians, archivists & information specialists, cultural
actors, health specialists, environment specialists, development &
social worker or civil servants) through ICT-enhanced training. 

It offers a central access point to non-formal education resources and
training which may be relevant to them according to their needs,
knowledge, language and culture, with special emphasis on developing
countries’ people. This is at the service of end users (through
community centers, IT kiosks, equipped libraries, etc.) but also helps
trainers in their guiding and facilitating role to make people,
including women and young, adapted to actively participate in knowledge
societies and economies where their future stands in their ability to be
active opportunity seekers."
