The course is narrated in simple language which most of the people can get through even for though English is not their native language. The step by step instructions are very helpful even for a slow learner can corp with it. Examples used are very simple and therefore well understood to motivate a learner try to do himself/herself for practical purpose. To conclude I would say, the course is well prepared in a manner which inspire someone to continue reading and doing something for practical purpose. It is real a self- paced learning course. No technical terminologies have been used or where they are used are given simple descriptions which most learner can understand. I enjoyed learning.

Before now, I have been scouting the internet for resources on M&E with little success due to the junks out there. But in spite of my skepticism about the thorough nature of online course, I decided to just give it a try and really, the Philanthropy University platform is the best. The case studies, resource, illustrations, tasks etc. was wonderful and for everyone of my team at Oliveserah Business and Academic Concepts, taking courses with Philanthropy University will become a norm.

The course is well structured, with good case examples. The discussion forums are good, very engaging and the learning methodology employed is good for both beginners and those with little expertise in M&E

Having completed this course, I give credit to the Philanthropy University and FHI360 team for conveying such a technical given subject matter (monitoring and evaluation) in such a simplified manner.

Though, the fundamental concepts, skill sets, tools and knowledge of the field (monitoring and evaluation) are enormous, however, the basic and fundamental of it all were all covered and discussed in simplified terms, devoid of any technical jargons.

The assessments and quizzes were also relevant, as it gave me the opportunity to appropriately apply and exercise the know…

This course "Planning for Monitoring and Evaluation" introduced the fundamentals of M&E and went further to guide the learners through a robust process of creating an M&E Plan. It explained the meaning, similarities and differences between monitoring and evaluation. In addition, the course walked the learners through the important components of an M&E plan (Introduction document, Logical Framework, Indicator Document, Data Flow Map, Roles and Responsibility Chart).

The course stressed the need and made learners understand that monitory and evaluation was fundamental to the success of any project and must be inculcated into the project as early as at the design phase.

This course by Philanthropy University is so educative and fully completing it will help bring a lot of positive changes within your organization and leads to a successful project implementation, putting you in the right position for evaluation and even monitoring. I wholeheartedly recommend this course and other courses offered by Philanthropy University like Essentials of Non-profit Strategy, Project Management.

This course is very easy to follow and practical. The information is packaged in a way that keeps you engaged with the content. I think it's an excellent course for persons who are now delving into M&E and even for persons who are already working in the field but need to touch up on their skills. One great asset from this course is the access to other tools and documents to help you with your own M&E projects.

This course is very helpful as it takes you through clear guidence with pratical exercises. I recommand it for those are working in developpment programmes but do not have back ground in monitoring and evaluation studies. The course is simple and clear. My only concern is about time allocated to it. Time is short for me. this causes me not to complete all module evaluations
