This e-learning offers a description of the main options of Result Management Systems (RMS). The various E-learning modules aim to shed some light on the various models of results management systems currently in use, highlighting advantages and disadvantages of each. The e-learning is geared towards election administrators, practitioners and stakeholders. The purpose is to increase the understanding of the different models and sub-models of results management systems and facilitate the selection of the most appropriate RMS option specific to the country context and also the one most likely to be accepted by stakeholders on the ground.

This E-learning is complementary to the publication Electoral Results Management Systems Catalogue of options – A guide to support electoral administrators and practitioners to evaluate RMS options, benefits and challenges that can be downloaded on the EC-UNDP Joint Task Force on Electoral Assistance Website.

How to use this Course

The course contains five modules. Each module screen contains several pages. The screen below explains the technical elements of each page (e.g. navigation system, interactive elements, etc) and serves as a “stop” in order for you to become accustomed to the learning environment.

The arrows on the top-left allow navigation through the different pages in a module. You can always jump from page to page using the bullets below in order to get back to a topic you want to repeat or go directly to one, in which you are more interested at the certain moment. We still advise you to avoid skipping pages and follow the content in the given sequence. On the right-top side of the header you can find the menu button, which opens the modules menu. Next to it is the mute button, which turns on and off all the music, sounds and the voice over.

The pages are normally split into two parts, one with introduction text and one with interactive elements. Unless specified explicitly, the elements that require interaction (clicking) by the learner are the 'blinking' ones and those containing question marks.

You can close and reopen the course as many times as you need.
