If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together (African proverb).
Didasko Academy's goal is to provide high-quality cross-cultural training for free to aid in the spread of the gospel. We believe that collaboration is the best way of bringing training to all Christians called by God. Very few organizations have the resources to produce all the training missionaries and their sending partners need, but together it can be done. For this reason, we have made all our material free to make it widely accessible. We hope that others will do the same.
You or your church or organization can collaborate in a number of ways.
- You reduce your training load by referring your people to our website, where they can do our courses free of charge. Once they complete a course, they can send you a link to their digitally-signed certificate. We offer a free service whereby you get weekly emails of student activity for a list of email addresses you provide.
- You can facilitate our courses to groups (some are doing this over Zoom). It takes very little time, and has been shown to have a good effect. See Facilitation Guide and Evaluator Guides buttons below.
- You can help us develop more courses or other useful training material. You can participate at different levels: Full course and video development, or only course content development.
Collaboration in development of new courses is made easy through our Creative/Christian Commons "open" license. This means you can retain copyright to your material, but we can host it. To find out what Christian Commons is, click on the button below.
- You are even welcome to use our material in your own courses, as long as you show our copyright notice (see "Our license" button below) and provide a link to our website. If you plan to do this, please contact us first, because our videos are designed to work best in context. Therefore, it might take some planning to achieve the desired results.
Please note that our focus is purely on cross-cultural ministry training. We are not a Bible school as such.
