About the same time that the OpenMRS Academy Squad was identifying facilitators for the OpenMRS Academy Fundamentals course, we learned about an opportunity to collaborate with Techchange on a 5-6 minute video about OpenMRS to be included in this new WHO Digital Health course. It would have been great to include this kind of video in the first OpenMRS Academy - and the timelines simply didn’t align.
The opportunity is still open! The team from Techchange would like to meet with us early next week to talk through timeline, video outline and sample script, going through workflow, and any questions.
Who’s up for meeting with them? Day/time options could include:
- Monday, October 12 at 2pm UTC
- Monday, October 12 at 4pm UTC
- Thursday, October 15 at 3pm UTC
Let me know if you have a preference.
USAID, Digital Square, PATH, and TechChange, based on content compiled by the WHO and the ITU. The course is designed to empower leaders and managers with the technical concepts and planning tools necessary to steer and orient national digital health stakeholders. It will mainly target officials from health, ICT, and finance ministries who work in Digital Health and in-country stakeholders who work with these ministries, such as donors, multi-laterals and UN agencies, and large implementing NGOs.
We are building the course with TechChange and creating lots of interactive content. As part of the curriculum, TechChange is creating a handful of short 5-6 minute videos that will each feature a detailed explanation of a specific global good. The videos will serve two purposes: 1) they will serve as instructional material to provide course participants context with specific case examples of different global goods softwares and we are hoping that they can also 2) serve to advocate and promote the benefits of using global goods softwares to a larger digital health stakeholder audience, who may not have attended the course. Potentially they could even be used as promotional videos by you guys.
