During a webinar in January, the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) and Moodle presented the results of their joint project to increase literacy teachers’ digital skills through the Global Alliance for Literacy (GAL). The presentation highlighted the project’s key success factors.
Together with UIL in 2022, Moodle created an online course for literacy educators that catered to the unique technological setups and educational requirements of students in GAL countries. Many teachers of literacy in countries like Bangladesh, Cote d’Ivoire, Egypt, and Nigeria have benefited from this online training.
UIL shared their insights gained from working together in a webinar titled “Designing for mobile and offline environments,” as well as in a case study that was published not too long ago. Low and unreliable internet connectivity, the use of a wide variety of basic digital devices, and the limited familiarity with online learning are just some of the obstacles that users in GAL countries face. This webinar provided an opportunity to share knowledge and solicit suggestions from the wider Moodle community about how to address these issues in the design process. These funds will be used to expand the training’s reach in 2023.

The partnership with Moodle is an initiative of the Global Education Coalition, which is coordinated by UNESCO.
The Global Alliance for Literacy within the Framework of Lifelong Learning has been at the forefront of international discussions and setting priorities for improving access to literacy instruction for those who are most in need since its 2016 inception. Thirty nations have joined forces to increase literacy rates among both children and adults. It’s a meeting place where people can share successes and failures, learn from one another, and improve their skillsets.
