CIDT Online Courses

Online learning is a cost-effective way for participants in diverse locations to be trained at their own pace.

CIDT online courses can serve as a stand-alone training or can be combined with face-to-face training – and are especially valuable as part of a Training of Trainers or a facilitated workshop to deliver a real product, such as a Logical Framework or a Project Funding Proposal.

Online Results-Based Management/LogFrame course

The video on the right gives you an insight into our online course in Results-Based Management (RBM) Thinking Tools, including the Logical Framework Approach (LFA) and the online course services we offer.

This online course provides basic training on a range of ‘thinking tools’ that facilitate RBM. It is not purely academic or theoretical. Rather, it was designed to support development practitioners with simple practical approaches and advice for designing, managing and assessing results-oriented projects, programmes and organizational performance. A major component of this training the LFA, because the LogFrame is a key tool for RBM. This e-learning programme consists of ten modules, which provide an overview of RBM and cover the ‘seven steps’ of designing and planning for new projects or programmes in a results-oriented manner. It introduces key tools that can be used at various steps, including Stakeholder Analysis, Problem and Objectives Trees, Risk Analysis, LogFrames, Workplans and Budgets. Most of the modules include interactive exercises and scenario-based quizzes, including a case study, to help participants check their learning.
