Interesting resource, last year I took the course and learn a lot about the
Internet ecosystem.

Maybe it's good to us start collaborating making a module specifically for
the web and open web standars. (Open Source too in the future?)

what do you think?



Hello Everyone,

The Internet Society is excited to announce the launch of Inforum, the new
eLearning platform and associated courses for our chapters and members.

Inforum builds on the Internet Society's deep and long history of sharing
subject matter expertise, delivering on-the-ground training and workshops,
and building a cadre of leaders and influencers at the intersection of
Internet governance and global and regional initiatives. Inforum also
equips and empowers individuals and communities to advance the Internet as
a boundless platform for innovation, human expression, and growth for those
online now -- and the billions still to come.

Inforum offers our chapters and members:

- Localized, on-the-go content with the the ability to offer up to 20
languages, flexible modes of delivery (including mobile), and low-bandwidth
- Dynamic and engaging curriculum developed by learning experts,
covering a wide range of Internet-related topics
- Community building via access to SMEs, discussion forums, online
communications tools, and continuous professional development

Starting today, we are offering the course, "Shaping the Internet - History
and Futures." The self-paced modules, available in English, French, and
Spanish, include:

- Introduction to Internet Governance
- History of the Internet
- Diplomacy and the Internet
- Internet Actors and Stakeholders Groups
- Internet Policy Principles
- Internet Infrastructure, Standards, Protocols and Systems
- Regulatory Frameworks
- Internet Governance for Development
- Multilingualism
- Legal Aspects of the Internet
- Intellectual Property Rights
- Copyright
- Emerging Issues in Security and Privacy

*Coming Soon*
Other courses are under development including a course on "Fundraising and
Seeking Grants," so stay tuned for upcoming announcements.


- Please share this information across your social media networks to
support the uptake of Inforum
- Speak with the Inforum team about partnership opportunities
- Help us identify higher education and other organizations that may
want to collaborate
- Give us feedback at

Like so many of the initiatives at ISOC, the design, delivery, and launch
of Inforum was only possible because of the thought partnership and
collaboration across the organization and with our communities. A very
special thanks to the chapters and members who were part of the Pilot User
Group -- and who took the time to give us feedback on the materials and
platform during the initial design and delivery.

If you have any questions, please drop us an email at In
the interim, additional information can be found at the Inforum landing
