4C Initiative: Seminar 3


Content. Capability.

Connect. Collaborate.

The 4C Initiative is a series of projects aimed at increasing digital content capacity for education on a global scale. By providing educators and learners with the skills to discover, use, create and share content with others in the learning community worldwide, 4C Initiative believes it can:

  • Encourage collaboration within the global education  community
  • Build digital content publishing capacity
  • Advances use of technology and the opportunity of learning through technology
  • Encourage the use of the Internet to discover and use learning resources for educational outcomes.
