The University of Cape Town (UCT) has collaborated with NGO Rlabs to make a social difference using technology.
The outcome is a free Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) which is accessible from anywhere in the world, the sixth of its kind from the university.
The online course uses the case study of Rlabs to explore what it takes to become a social entrepreneur.
It is titled Becoming a changemaker: Introduction to Social Innovation, and the course is also accessible offline for those without access to digital resources.
While we teach these things at university level, Rlabs has really been democratising what it means to be a change-maker.— Dr Francois Bonnic, Director of UCT's Bertha Institute.
UCT's Dr Francois Bonnici explains that course runs over six weeks and encourages people to make a difference in their communities.
