MobileTrain.co FREE online training COVID-19

MobileTrain.co FREE online training launched in response to COVID-19 crisis

After looking at the future of Christian media training in the next three to five months we have developed MobileTrain.co in partnership with Global News Alliance.  MobileTrain.co is a website that manages no-charge self-paced courses with content very much like what was taught in our in our Face to Face(F2F) workshops.

We are offering two streams of courses to interested people; Mobile Journalism and Mobile Filmmaking. Each stream has five unique courses of eight modules. Each course is self-paced in that the student reads and watches visual resources and does both written and production assignments without day to day involvement of a Learning Facilitator.

Each course is offered without charging a registration fee but students and others are free to donate.

Here is the description of the first two courses:
