I have been in contact with some MapAction folks recently & may be able to 
contribute a HOT/OSM section to the following course:

I am sure others on this list will have links with MapAction also, so this might 
be an opportunity for us to collaborate & create some HOT/OSM relevant content 
for their processes.  I am unsure how much they will use, but early indications 
from the member i have spoken with with are that they would be very keen to use 
some input from us.
