Hi LiberationTech Folks!

My colleagues and I at TechChange have decided to offer another round of
our online certificate course on *Digital Organizing and Open
Government* (course
description included below). The course will run from April 15th - May
10th.

We've got an amazing line-up of guest experts but are looking for a few
more. If you're interested in speaking in the class or sharing case studies
from your work then let us know. We're also looking to fill a few more
seats so feel free to circulate to your colleagues.

Here's a one-minute animation about the course: http://vimeo.com/55556575

For those that are less familiar with TechChange <http://techchange.org/> we
offer online certificate courses on our dedicated platform using a number
of techniques including social learning, game mechanics, animation,
interactive simulations, and more. We're also looking to do a lot more work
in animation so if anyone is interested in having their message or content
animated then let us know.

Cheers,
Nick
