In Latin America and The Caribbean there are about 30 million civil servants. Many do not have access to specialized training, due to a lack of financial resources in their respective administrations.
In order to expand its reach, the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) will make their training programs accessible in the region through MOOCs and the Open edX platform.
IDBx will be the name of their edX platform. The first two courses offered in Spanish are: “Managing for Development Results in Subnational Governments” and “Better Pensions, Better Jobs: Exploring pension coverage”.
