The Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA) has led a paradigm change in India's urban development, with the implementation of its two flagship missions- Deendayal Antyodaya Yojana-National Urban Livelihoods Mission (DAY-NULM) and the Swachh Bharat Mission– Urban (SBM-U).
The U-LEARN (Urban Livelihood e-Learning and Resource Network) application is an e-learning initiative with the objective of building capacities of DAY-NULM and SBM-U functionaries.
U-LEARN is available as a mobile application as well as a web-based platform. It offers tutorials in the form of videos, case studies on leading practices, model MoUs/Agreements and other reference documents. Participants have the option to take a test after going through each tutorial, and receive a certificate on successful completion of the test.
U-Learn aims to serve as a critical resource for NULM functionaries from national, state and city mission management units, as well as all field functionaries implementing NULM including community organizers, and staff of resource organizations engaged for formation and support of SHGs under the Mission. Community resource persons, SHG and federation members, as well as other beneficiaries can use the video tutorials available on U-Learn to gain insights on the NULM guidelines, self- employment opportunities, their entitlements and options for skill development.
SBM functionaries who are at the forefront of delivering objectives of the Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM) would find valuable tutorials on U-Learn. This includes national, state and city PMU staff, and the sanitation and engineering staff of Urban Local Bodies.
The resources available on this platform would also be useful for NGOs and research organizations working on urban poverty, livelihoods, urban sanitation and waste management, as well as the elected and executive officials at urban local bodies.
