Chapters 38 include tools that policymakers and stakeholders can use in developing ideas specifically for their country or context.

Leveraging existing online training resources

This chapter highlights the opportunity of utilizing the tremendous range of training resources available online. Both the volume and quality of online learning resources increases daily. Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), YouTube videos, interactive learning modules, and many other resources are available on the internet, much of it free or at very low cost. Codecademy, for instance, provides free coding classes in twelve different coding languages, and has been used by over 25 million learners. Khan Academy offers exercises, instructional videos, resources for parents and teachers, and other practical resources to provide free education to everyone. Many of these resources are available in multiple languages, though English still dominates and many minority languages suffer from significant availability gaps.
