Hi Douglas
Thanks for this contribution.
Notes of the last meeting are at http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Humanitarian_OSM_Team/Working_groups/Training/Apr_24_2012_Notes and the next meeting is scheduled on irc://irc.oftc.net/hot, tuesday 8, at 15:00 
On the wiki page  http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Humanitarian_OSM_Team/Working_groups/Training various audiences are described.  For each of these 
audiences, we should be able to detail on the wiki page what material  is 
available (worsheets and videos), what is desirable.
We find an abondance of QGIS tutorials 
including videos, In comparison, it seems that there is less material for 
Potlatch2 and JOSM.  QGIS tutorials are 
divided by tasks, wich facilitate consultation.  Below are links to such

Even if  HOT contributors cannot 
participate to meetings, we invite them to contribute to the wiki page or 
comment on this HOT list. Do you think that we should develop  similar 
material for Potlatch2 and JOSM?  We also invite you to contribute to 
the inventory of what material already exist.

>Objet : [HOT] Disecting the openstreetmap + potlatch
>Hi all..
>It has taken a little longer, but attached is a (.pdf) documentation with an introduction to OSM and editing with Potlatch, it provides a good start to anyone who would like to start using the open street map.
>It is presented to the members of H.O.T to have feedback/comments. I have been looking at the training chat logs and i think, if any modifications are to be made, it can be one of the documentation collections. There are no videos for the document, and it has some information from the osm wiki, and other is from practical discovery.
>It's true that using Potlatch in areas that have slow Internet connections is almost impossible, but here (in Uganda), there are a few areas with fairly fast Internet connections, and with this connection, editing would go just fine without any hindrances. 
>The contents in that documentation have been used in the weekly training sessions, as well as other training materials, mostly the H.O.T manual, and the osm wiki page.
>Yours Truly
