The work I did
This class is structured as a lecture tuesday’s from 6-7:45pm and a tech lab thursday’s 6-7:45pm.
- In the lecture part, I learned how to apply for granting funding for my ICT-based social enterprise project. Through case studies and lectures I as was able to learn about funders, proposal design, field methods, project assessment, innovative ICT applications, action research methods.
- In the tech lab part, I took ‘Intermediate Web Design’. I used my domain and WordPress themed site to get a better understanding of how WordPress fits in the context of Nonprofits. I dove deeper into CSS and learn just a smidgen of PHP. At the end of the course, I was able to create a functioning site for any small Non Profit or NGO and teach them how to use and maintain it.
Here are some examples of the work I produced in this class:
