Some of you may have heard of CiviTeacher and watched some of the great training videos available on the site. I think it's an excellent resource that walks you through different CiviCRM tasks and features. It gives you access to easy to digest, short videos, which will help you to make the most of CiviCRM. The videos also share best practices and lessons learned that will save you time and headaches by helping you to set up things correctly in CiviCRM.  I thought it would be great to know more about CiviTeacher and Stuart Gaston, who started CiviTeacher, so I emailed him to see if he would like to do a blog interview. Have more questions about CiviTeacher? Feel free to comment to share your questions.

1. Tell us a little about yourself.

We would like to invite you to the Power of CiviCRM webinar from 4-5 pm EST. I will be providing an introduction to CiviCRM and sharing some case studies.  Dave Greenberg will also join the webinar to share thoughts about the vision for CiviCRM.  In a recent blog post, he shared, “As we approach our 10th year, I continue to believe that providing open source software solutions for the challenges faced by nonprofits and NGOs around the world is critically important. We want to make sure that organizations can own their own data AND can collaborate on the continual improvements to their tools, rather than incurring the costs of continually re-inventing the wheel with custom and proprietary software. We recently spent some time as a community clarifying our vision for CiviCRM. He added, "A key measure of our success will always be the social good that CiviCRM generates, and the stories that we hear from organizations that are doing amazing and...

The course resources for trainers on the Wiki have now been updated for CiviCRM 4.5.
This has been done as part of the Edale sprint taking place in the UK.
The courses can be found on the CiviCRM Wiki - wiki.civicrm.org/confluence/display/CRM/Training
The course is based on a modular format with 14 individual sessions and each session contains both trainer notes and exercises for the learners.
The modular nature of the course means this can be run in multiple formats, like a '2 day course' or a '1 day course focusing on fundraising'.
Instructions for the trainer have been provided along with training tips, suggested course timetables and printable trainer/learner notes.
The full course is slide free - the idea is that the trainer delivers the whole course on a live CiviCRM site. The...
