Farm Radio International and partners attend the Pan-Commonwealth Forum on Open Learning

Blythe McKay and Bart Sullivan from Farm Radio International attended the sixth Pan-Commonwealth Forum on Open Learning in Kochi, India in November of this year. They gave presentations as part of the Community Development theme. Blythe talked about the recent online scriptwriting course and competition, while Bart presented some of the methods for increasing listener participation that he has been testing in East Africa. Blythe told Farm Radio Weekly that there was a lot of interest in their presentations, and that the Forum was a great opportunity to meet and discuss e-learning with people from all over the world.

James Achanyi Fontem from Cameroon Link, one of FRI’s strategic partners, also attended the forum, and has posted more details and photos on his blog: http://camlinknews.blogspot.com/2010/12/e-learning-course-for-africa.html.
