New RamCT Blackboard goes live for summer 2012

CSU-Village Earth courses move to the new RamCT Blackboard for all online coursework at the start of the summer term, June 1, 2012.   The current RamCT system will no longer be used for teaching after this date.

We hope that this new platform will be easier for students to access and navigate from all over the world.

New Course in Disaster Management

In response to our course participants’ interest in disaster management, we have developed a new five-week online course entitled Grassroots Participatory Disaster Management. In light of the many recent natural disasters, we feel this course will help expand our students’ expertise by understanding participatory methods of working in high-stress, disaster situations. Please visit our website to review this and other online training offerings.

Distaster Mitigation Course Now Open

For sometime now, we have been receiving requests to develop new five-week online courses on the topics of disaster mitigation and renewable energy as applied at the village level. We are glad to report that this upcoming session (starting June 4th) we will now be offering “Community-Based Disaster Mitigation.” We expect high enrollment, so enroll early while space remains.
