NDI and Stanford's Center for Development, Democracy and the Rule of Law
are pleased to announce a free bilingual online course---the Technology for
Accountability Lab
in English and Arabic. This action-oriented course is intended to
facilitate learning and collaboration between two audiences: civic activists
who have an interest in using technology in their work and technologists who
are interested in using their skills to build a more democratic and less
corrupt world. Through joint discussion boards, it will also connect
English-speaking participants with their Arabic-speaking peers. The 3rd
session in the series is comprised of videos dedicated exclusively to
monitoring parliaments!

Individuals who complete course requirements will receive a *statement of
accomplishment* from Stanford Online.
