MCT and MINA Learning Exchange


Last month Angelo Villagomez, Executive Director of Mariana Islands Nature Alliance (MINA), participated in a Learning Exchange with Lisa and Mary Rose of the Micronesia Conservation Trust (MCT) in Pohnpei. As part of the learning exchange, Angelo was to help Lisa and Mary Rose with the MCT website website. They already have a website and they justed wantedmeone to show them how to edit it and how to add documents.

The Micronesians in Island Conservation Network (MIC) make learning exchanges available to all its members. Once a year, all of the members are allowed to invite one of the other members to come to their island to teach them something.

In this case, Angelo was invited by MCT to share his knowledge of computers and the Internet. Working together Lisa and Mary Rose, he helped figure out which html editing program MCT had on their computers, found the html files containing the MCT website, and went over how to edit, create new pages, add pictures, and add files.

The MCT website can be found at:
