An Excellent Free Online Course – Starting Soon!

A massive open online course (MOOC /mk/) is an online course aimed at unlimited participation and open access via the web. I warmly recommend to all CCIVS members who want to improve their communication competencies to join the Exploring Filmmaking MOOC. If you participated in the Online and Residential Media Training by Egyesek in Hungary, you will especially benefit from this opportunity. The course kicks off on 29 June 2015 and lasts 6 weeks.

Communicate What You Know

It has been a week that the first CCIVS (Nonprofit) Media Training came to a wonderous closing. Participants engaged in an intensive, inspired and demanding workout for communication skills. The challenge centered on the pedagogical idea of the Tiny Project – ideas, tasks, goals, visions packed into a professional format suitable for briefing to media professionals, NGO executives, staff members and stakeholders.

Alongside 22 presentations of truly inspired ideas, participants produced a series of exercise videos and side-projects. Needless to say, a large number of these productions are more than exercises: they are the raw, beautiful, restless and powerful energy of participants with a vision – a vision they want to transform into social action.

All of these works communicate what participants know best: the transformative power of volunteering…

Here’s a small selection of the work of the participants and team of this event.

Online Media Training Opportunity

Dear Friends,

I am writing this post to invite you to join the Online Training of the CCIVS residential media training. My name is Miki Ambrozy, I am filmmaker and media educator. We are currently working with the Secretariat and Egyesek Youth Association (HU) to bring you a high-quality media training, both on- and offline.

The Online Training is free and you can join it by signing up here. It is an essential step to a successful face-to-face training, because we will cover the very basics of media and communication. These additional lessons create a common ground for talking about making powerful communication pieces online. Even if you aren’t involved in the Hungarian training, you are welcome to sign up for the remaining lessons! The course will run until 7 June 2015.
