Dear colleagues,

The Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Open Data Management in Agriculture and Nutrition is now available in French [1], thanks to the generous efforts of GODAN Partner, the African Francophone community for open data, CAFDO.

THE COURSE MATERIALS ARE AVAILABLE HERE FOR USE OR DOWNLOAD<https://www.godan.info/training-courses>

The intended audience is reasonably broad, including information professionals interested in open data research and management (including ICT specialists, STEM journalists, communications professionals and archivists), data scientists and researchers, and policy and decision makers.

We have already received considerable interest in making this useful resource available in additional language versions. On behalf of the wider GODAN community, we would like to extend our thanks to CAFDO, for undertaking the translation into French  and we are looking for collaborations with further partners for other languages, with Spanish and Portuguese a priority.  There is an open call for making open data management course materials available in major world languages at https://www.godan.info/news/open-call-making-open-data-management-course-materials-available-major-world-languages

If you or your organisation are interested in participating, please send an Expression of Interest, explaining how you intend to contribute (including details on expertise, resources, etc) to the editorial work to ensure it is accurate and of high quality. Please outline a versioning strategy, as you plan updates to the original text. Contact GODAN Operations Director Sam Compton by 30 May, 2020 to register your interest at  samuel.compton at godan.info<mailto:samuel.compton at godan.info>

Best wishes,
