4 New Videos on Community Based Development

Exciting news: We are adding videos to our online training programs.
Sneak Preview: Four new videos provide an introduction into community based programming for our three most popular training programs.
These three training programs and the videos share a common link in involving communities in project design and management.
We have developed the videos—three of which provide an introduction to community based programming—and one of which is an actual "how to" assignment screencast on developing a project outline from a participatory, community needs assessment.
I urge you to take a peek at these videos—they are short—but but packed with information about the on-the-ground realities of development. Here is the first video of the four:

I've enjoyed developing these videos because they mitigate the formality of written lectures and allow me to be myself.
I have developed many friends through our online courses, and it occurred to me when I saw the videos that these friends have possibly never seen me before (nor have I seen them!). So I'm hoping this will open up new bridges of communication.
Although these initial videos have been developed for OL 101, the videos for the first assignment for 201 and 341 will essentially be the same; community based programming is the common link for international development projects, nonprofit projects, and community based adaptation.
Enjoy! I look forward to continuing to work together through our training programs.
