Radio Saathi is a self-paced, self-taught training kit for beginners in Community Radio (CR) Stations. It aims to cover the fundamental principles of CR functioning and also describes the dos and don’ts of the National CR Policy (2006). It is designed in an interactive video format to enable better learning and also engage the user in a playful method.

It essentially has two sections, namely, topic modules and CR station profile. The modules cover the following topics with a goal to orient a user: 1. Introduction to Community Radio 2. Choice of Topic and Radio Formats 3. Radio Programme Production 4. Post-Production (Editing) 5. Broadcasting & Narrowcasting 6. Radio Station Management

We, at MixORG, have created a Digital Learning Platform for Training of Community Radio Reporters. This is an Android mobile application for multimedia-based training for individuals interested in running a community radio station or already running one. The App is available in public domain (Radio Saathi) for free use with licensing of content as creative commons (CC-SA). It consists of 6 comprehensive self-learning modules designed for beginners in Community Radio Stations, followed by exercises and quizzes for each module. It further allows for customization at the CR station level by adding / modifying the existing modules and including profiles of members. Designed with audio-visual features useful for people with low or no literacy skills this mobile application has features like offline access to content, analytics, quizzes, and assignments. It will be helpful in engaging more people in CRS operations, as it will impart training on CR basics to them.
