Abstract

This report provides a plan for evaluation of a distance delivered MicroFinance course offered by the Coady International Institute. It addresses the question: how can distributed learning be used to deliver instruction in microfinance to non governmental organizations in remote locations? To answer this question, I conducted research on a pilot course offered on-line, in the fall of 2004, to fifteen participants from twelve different countries. This research involved an extensive literature review and a series of three rounds of interviews with five key informants. The findings were used to develop a plan for evaluation of the on-line course. The results indicate sound practices in place or in development at the Coady International Institute for the delivery of on-line courses. Relatively new in the field of distributed learning, they have absorbed very important lessons and have demonstrated a scholarly and practical approach to improve practice.
