UNESCO is leading a group of partners in the production of a complete suite of open access, multimedia workshop- ready training materials, the “Multimedia Training Kit” or MMTK.
The MMTK aims to promote and support linkages between new and traditional media for development through a structured set of materials. The materials are based on standard set of templates, and are intented to be used as building blocks from which trainers can build up training workshops appropriate for their own contexts.
The MMTK will eventually offer a comprehensive suite of training materials covering technical, content, organizational and ethical topics such as "presenting a radio" or "writing for the Web".
MMTK materials are released under a creative common license which allow their free use and distribution for non-commercial use.
