The curriculum is in direct alignment with the priorities of the MDG agenda, along with a special focus on gender equality and sub-Saharan Africa. The curriculum is composed of 8 online modules worth 4 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credits each and is designed for universities, NGOs, and other organisations that offer formal and informal education on the topic and could incorporate it (or part of it) in their programme. The modules focus on issues related to climate change, poverty eradication, educational for all, fair trade, civic participation, combat of diseases and global partnerships.
The target audience of the curriculum mainly consists of secondary education students, university students, pre-service and in-service teachers, NGO activists, academics, and public servants. The 8 modules are accessible through the project's online learning platform.
Students complete all reading, discussions, activities, and assignments online through the Online Learning Environment (OLE). The environment for each module has been created through the use of Moodle, an open source platform that allows for the creation of OLEs and internet-based courses.
