The Information Management Resource Kit (IMARK) is a partnership-based e-learning initiative that aims to enable development practitioners to acquire skills, competences, behaviors and attitudes in knowledge sharing and information management. The main objective of IMARK is to develop the capacities of individuals and support institutions world-wide, in effective knowledge and information management.
IMARK consists of a suite of free e-learning courses available online, on CD-ROM and as a downloadable package. The e-learning courses are being developed using the latest pedagogical models and methodologies, and provide an interactive environment for self-paced learning.
IMARK is a truly collaborative e-learning initiative involving more than 50 partner institutions, which have contributed to the curriculum design, content development, dissemination, promotion or language adaptations. IMARK is coordinated through a Steering Group consisting of the following thirteen organizations:
