Technical & Training Coordinator at RCD

Type: Not for profit organization

Country: Colombia

About:

The Richmond Centre for Disability (RCD) is not-for-profit, disability-led and community-based, providing service to entire communities on disability issues.

Please describe your role; what do you do?

I provide training sessions to our participants and staff regarding technology. I am also the network administrator of RCD.

With FAME I was able to offer diversity and inclusion

What were your main challenges before using FAME?

The diversity of interest from our participants was the main challenge. With FAME, I provided this diversity where it is easily accessible online.

Some of our participants went into digital photography, some focused on drawing foundation, and some studied computer animation through FAME. My role was to assign suitable courses to the right participants.

What was the motivation to use FAME?

FAME was able to provide courses to the participants we usually couldn’t. The wealth of information from FAME was suitable for both our participants and staff. The user interface was easy to understand, and both participants and instructors had fun using it.

What criteria did you use when deciding to become a FAME partner?

The cost was a significant concern for all our subscription-based services. However, FAME is set at a reasonable price for non-profits.

I am also able to conduct study groups by using FAME

How has the experience been of being part of our FAME Partner Network?

It has been a valuable learning experience for us and for our learners it has been extremely positive overall.

How has FAME helped you to address your challenges?

FAME addressed my challenges by providing a learning platform for our participants. I am also able to conduct study groups by using FAME.

How has FAME impacted your success?

FAME directly impacted our participants by providing an easy-to-understand learning platform. As a result, RCD staff could focus on our participants instead of the training material.

It was an efficient learning model for both participants and service providers.
