Course Launch: Tech Tools and Skills for Emergency Management


We’re excited to start our online course on TC103: Tech Tools and Skills for Emergency Management. We have an incredible group of participants enrolled in the course: 46 people working in 26 countries from organizations like Mercy Corps, UNDP, Voice of America,, German International Cooperation, Inter-American Development Bank, African Union Commission, World Pulse Media, SpanAfrica, World Vision, Plan International and more. From professors to practitioners, policy makers to first responders, you all represent an amazing cross-section of people on the front lines of emergency management. We will also have 6 small group moderators and three guest experts supporting our learning for the course including Patrick Meier of Ushahdi and Laura Hudson Walker of FrontlineSMS.
