    This is a sample of the course that is available on the platform without the interaction. In this course the expert has been recorded in the United Nations Studio in Geneva. The full course is 5 weeks with Chat/Fora sessions and Evaluations for each of the 8 modules. In this example, participants study the course material and watch the online videos individually. The chat session (which is scheduled once a week) would be done in a group setup, one group participating from a training room in Kenya and another from a training room in Rwanda. Local tutors, trained by the TrainForTrade team in a regional Training of Technical Tutors workshop, manage the chat session. The Instructor of the course interacts with the two groups via the chatroom on the platform at the same time. TrainForTrade staff also connect to the chat to provide technical support.

    Training of technical tutors

    Introduction
    The aim of this course is to enable you to become a confident and effective trainer using the validated training material provided. It is very important that you learn how to use this material effectively; as a trainer, you have a responsibility towards the participants you are training, the material you are delivering and the institution you are working for.

        In your role as trainer you will have the opportunity to do the following:

      bulleshare your expertise in a subject with the participants;

      bullehelp the participants overcome any difficulties they might have in understanding and learning the course material;

      bulleserve as a model for the participants, stimulating their enthusiasm and helping them to adopt a positive attitude;

      bulleshare your values with the participants;

      bulleimprove your own training skills.

    The trainer on a course plays an important role in the training of each of the participants. Think back to your own experience as a learner – no doubt you will remember certain trainers or teachers as being particularly effective. You should aim to produce the same impression on the participants on your own courses.
