Over 45 students are expected to graduate from ISOC's Next Generation Leaders (NGL) eLearning course, offered in collaboration with DiploFoundation. The students formed two classes: an English-speaking class, and for the first time this year, a French-speaking class.
The course, which ended last week, offered six months of academic training on topics related to the Internet ecosystem, which included historical and technical background, issues related to Internet governance and ICT policy, and emerging issues. The course took place on Diplo's e-learning platform.
The eLearning Course is the academic component of ISOC’s NGL Programme, which seeks to train emerging leaders in Internet technology, policy and business, through both academic and practical aspects. After they graduate, ISOC selects a number of outstanding participants to take advantage of guidance with project proposals, and with further training.
