In addition to the videos, Giving 2.0: The MOOC featured a variety of ways to engage with the material. Below you will find the workbook for the course, different handouts and profiles of the speakers featured in the MOOC.


Giving 2.0: The MOOC Workbook

Welcome to the Giving 2.0: The MOOC companion workbook.

The activities in this workbook will prompt you to reflect deeply on content covered in the lecture videos. Some activities are designed to help you answer some of the big questions the course asks you to think about. Others are created in lockstep with the assignments and other course components to make it easier to complete quizzes, finish assignments and participate in every aspect of the course.

Please complete as many activities as you can, as each will help you become an increasingly strategic, high-impact philanthropist. This workbook is a place for your personal thoughts and boldest ideas, so honor what both your heart and head say and you will find areas of spectacular synchronicity in which you can actualize your philanthropic potential.
