Vision
“A key resource that is lacking is a comprehensive,
integrated series of training materials to be used by
staff of community media and multimedia communication
providers that progress from beginner to advanced levels,
and that include resources on the fundamental principles
and processes involved in communication for development.

A complete suite of training materials would need to cover a
range of skills, from content production, to broadcasting
ethics, ICT maintenance, management and business
planning, and technical skills in working with digital audio
and video and integrating “old and new” technologies as
well as organization and implementation of community
outreach activities”.

 MMTK & ITO
• ItrainOnline (APC, Bellanet, IICD, One
  World, INASP) is primarily a portal
  http://www.itrainonline.org/
• MMTK develops materials
• Overlapping partners and content
• We plan to make the MMTK the ITO
  “materials development arm”, and will use
  the same materials format

 Future plans
• Seeking funding for MMTK II
   – More materials development (new and adapted
     and responsive to CMC needs)
   – Face-to-face capacity building around materials
     development
   – Piloting/testing
   – Harness technology to support trainers
   – Limited translation
• MMTK III - full-scale production, translation
• ItrainOnline/MMTK integration
