TechChange <http://techchange.org/> has been featured in Fast Company as
one of the “best learning resources for aspiring social entrepreneurs”,
with recognition for the “hybrid” online/offline learning category.

Here are some highlights from the article:

   - “A notable resource specific to [hybrid learning models] is
TechChange,<http://techchange.org/online-courses/> which
   has held hundreds of in-person small-group workshops, combined with
   video-based and interactive delivery designed with some game mechanics,
   simulations-based group projects, and live video chat with instructors.
   These cover topics such as “mobiles for international
development,”<http://techchange.org/online-courses/mobiles-for-international-development/>
    and “intrapreneurship–Innovating from
within.”<http://techchange.org/online-courses/intrapreneurship-innovating-from-within/>
   * [Note: there’s still time for you to enroll in both these
courses!<http://techchange.org/online-courses/>
   ]*


   - “Their open courses draw an international audience of participants,
   interested in social media and social change. They also create custom
   courses in partnership with organizations such as the United Nations, World
   Bank, USAID, UNICEF, Red Cross, US State Department, training student
   leaders in Pakistan, civil society leaders in Sudan, or international aid
   workers.”


   - “Nick Martin, one of the founders of Techchange, saw a growing need in
   his field for continuing professional education. “We took dozens of online
   courses from all kinds of providers and found that most of them were pretty
   awful. So we set out to build a model that was more social, interactive,
   scalable, and suited to the needs of the social change community.”
