The MFTOT Course is jointly sponsored by the Asian Development Bank Institute and the World Bank Tokyo Development Learning Center. The interactive microfinance distance learning course developed by the United Nations Capital Development Fund* (UNCDF) is the core learning material for study. This course has received high ratings from participants and become popular in many countries.
Seven courses have been successfully delivered in the Asia-Pacific region and around the world. About 3,000 participants have conducted self-study using the interactive e-Learning package, attended videoconference sessions, and received online tutoring. Among them, a total of 694 participants in 51 countries were accredited to become fully certified trainers of the UNCDF microfinance distance learning course.
The course features a unique, blended approach consisting of:
- Self-paced study using the Microfinance Distance Learning package * developed by UNCDF.
- Online tutoring and e-discussion. Tutors will assist participants in completing assignments throughout the course and will provide feedback and grading. Online discussions will be moderated by the team leader of tutors.
- Meeting with international microfinance experts through four videoconference sessions at selected GDLN centers. The videoconference sessions will feature presentations and discussions on current issues and best practices in microfinance. The videoconferences will also be webcast live.
