New HREA introductory e-course on Rights of the Child

HREA has launched a second introductory e-course: Rights of the Child. This course takes between 3 and 10 hours to complete, yet is completely self-paced and thus can be spread out over days, weeks or even months depending upon the situation of the learner. To successfully complete the course, learners have to pass assessments throughout the course. Upon completion, learners receive a certificate of completion.

The introductory e-courses are primarily intended for those who want a quick introduction into a human rights-related topic through readings and rich multimedia, including videos and podcasts.

The first introductory e-course Rights of Refugees and Displaced Persons was launched in July and has received very positive feedback. Additional introductory e-courses on Human Rights in Europe (November 2010) and International Humanitarian Law (January 2011) will be be launched in the coming months.

You can try a free demo of the course, get more information, and enroll in the introductory e-course Rights of the Child at:
