Training church leaders

Learning technologies is a little difficult to explain. It's easy to shoot off into different directions on the tools used for training, or different instructional approaches. It's not easy to nail down. Which is good, I think, because as extension training is a newly-developing field, it's important to remain flexible and adaptable to the local needs of an area.

The goal is to enable remote learners to access some sort of training that is relevant and applicable in their local setting. This takes on many different forms. As I listen in on Learning Technologies meetings, I am encouraged to hear that several countries are finding the services MAF-LT provides very useful.

Here are some links to two videos explaining the work MAF-LT does in Kenya and Thailand:
