January 5, 2010, delegations of NAR (Hilde Lange and Torill Torlen) and KVAN (Fred van Kan, Peter Horsman, René Spork, Thijs Laeven and Roelof Braad) met in Amsterdam to discuss the proposal of mr. Lutful Haq and mr. Elias of BARM – Bangladesh for a Train the Trainers Project (TOT) 24 – 28 February 2010. Both archival organizations in Norway and the Netherlands have the intention to subsidize the TOT project in Bangladesh. Along this, NAR is thinking of sending a representative from their organization to Bangladesh in February. Next, the two organizations discussed the long-term development of an e-learning programme for the train the trainers project in Bangladesh with the help and support of the International Council on Archives (ICA). An e-learning environment doesn’t replace the training “in the field” but offers useful materials (reports, texts, comments) for the trainers and the students as supplement. Open source software (free) is available for this e-exchange programme, f.e. ‘moodle.’ NAR and KVAN are waiting for reaction on their proposals from mr. Lutful Haq and mr. Elias.
