Online interactive course (self-paced)
 
Later in 2016, web users will be able to explore natural resource governance in Petronia through NRGI's new interactive web platform. Petronia is a simulated learning experience exploring the policy challenges of a fictional developing country at the outset of oil production. Online learners join a team of experts deployed to advise Petronia’s policymakers in a series of complex resource governance scenarios based on models and case studies developed by NRGI experts. Learners interact with their team and Petronian clients, choose their own interests, set their own learning pace, and along the way build their knowledge of the issues, stakeholders and complex tradeoffs in managing resource wealth for development. This course combines the best of NRGI's learning tools including animations, graphics, case study approaches, problem solving and data analysis while providing greater accessibility to a general audience. The full learning experience takes around 90 minutes and is suitable for users who may not be ready yet to make the more significant investment of time that the MOOC or in-person courses on offer may require.
 

 
The platform will be available on NRGI's website from May 2016. To be notified of the platform launch, please register your interest here.
