Professor Lorenzo Dalvit is currently conducting a survey in coorporation with TASCHA of the University of Washington. Check out this message below and fill out the survey:

As part of the Advancing MOOCs for Development Initiative (AMDI), we are conducting a short survey to understand how people in South Africa between the ages 18-35, participate in massive open online courses (MOOCs). Some MOOC providers include Coursera, edX, Udacity, MiriadX, UP Online Program, and TESDA, that work in partnership with universities and other institutions.

Please help us by filling out this short survey (works best in Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox), whether you have taken a MOOC or not. Your participation is very important to help us understand how skills gained through open online courses affect employment and career aspirations. Make your voice heard!

The survey will take approximately 10 minutes, and it is available in English and Spanish. Your participation is voluntary and all responses are anonymous.

If you have any questions about this study, please contact: Professor Maria Garrido (migarrid@uw.edu) of the Technology & Social Change Group (TASCHA) of University of Washington’s Information School.
