YouTrain - fresh videos for non-formal education
"YouTrain- fresh videos for non-formal education" is a set of short and easy-to-digest video tutorials on methods of non-formal education, as well as on general considerations in non-formal education.
The aim of the tool is to make methods and approaches in non-formal education easily accessible (cross-sectorially!) via video tutorials.

*) cross-sectorially raised competences of youth workers and educators in general approaches and principles of non-formal education
*) cross-sectorially raised competences of youth workers and educators in use and production of video-tutorials in/for education and youth work
*) cross-sectorially raised awareness, promotion and recognition of non-formal education
*) cross-sectorially raised awareness, promotion and recognition of video tutorials as a tool in education

So far, the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, summarized as "why has this not existed before?". What is yet to be seen/explored is how to embed the video-tutorials in an educational context outside of self-directed learning, eg in ToTs, MOOCs etc.
