With their workshops cancelled due to COVID-19 one of our ICTI members has designed a special learning management system to train Christian Mobile Filmmakers and Mobile Journalists. The courses are adaptations of on-site workshops by Dan Henrich and Christine Henrich which have been taught in Thailand, India and Ethiopia. The free site is called MobileTrain.co.
Currently there are two streams (Mobile Journalism and Mobile Filmmaking). Each stream has five courses with eight modules in each online course. Upon successful completion of each course the student receives a Certificate of Completion. When the student completes Levels Two to Five they receive a Practitioner Certification in Mobile Journalism awarded by Global News Alliance as well as Correspondent Credentials. As GNA correspondents they can submit video stories of God at Work for GNA’s international broadcasting network.
In the Mobile Filmmaking area, students follow the same format of Certificate of Completion and Practitioner Certification in Mobile Filmmaking by Communication Resources International, a division of NGO Handclasp International. Each series of courses constitutes a micro-certification in the area.
To join, visit MobileTrain.co and create a user name, they you can become a participant in either stream of courses. And if you like the course you may optionally donate via the PayPal link!
