This is a really cool site. Many thanks to the people at the State
Department who put this together. The video tutorials for how to
register and edit are an excellent introduction for new mappers. THey
also have a nice short written guide for each step as well.
It would be good to make use of these videos in the HOT learning
guide. It is also possible to add subtitles to these videos in
different langauges, it would be interesting to subtitle them in the
languages for the countries we are working in. There are websites
that let you add a wrapper around youtube other online videos and then
the community can just submit subtitles in different languages easily,
we used them on a different open source project I worked on in the past.
See below for the original message posted to the talk-ph mailing list.
I replied to that message and also forwarded this reply to the HOT
mailing list as well.
