Bringing science and development together through news and analysis

  • New website offers free computer and Internet training

A new website offering free access to computer and Internet training resources was launched in Montevideo, Uruguay on 29 November.

‘ItrainOnline’ — found at — aims to bring together computer training resources developed by and for non-governmental organisations, development organisations and other civil society groups.

Topics covered range from computer and Internet basics to building online communities and incorporating audio and video into websites.

The site — launched in English and Spanish with a view to adding more languages in 2002 — has been created by six international organisations: the Association for Progressive Communications; Bellanet International Secretariat; the International Institute for Communication and Development; the International Institute for Sustainable Development; the International Network for the Availability of Scientific Publications and OneWorld.
