Hi Nicola, thank you for taking the time to create these videos. Because of your efforts I hope more people will spend time in OHATS and build their own understanding of the way groups of people can work together to solve community problems, and that this will lead more people to take active and on-going roles in helping volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs reach youth in more places.


I encourage you to develop two more videos, and then sequence them so that viewers would be encouraged to watch from #1 to the last one. 


The first video would be an overview of T/MC mission. You could walk people through this page to show that. This is important because OHATS is documentation of actions taken to achieve the mission.


The second video would be to walk people through this PDF which was created in 2002 and explains what OHATS is, what the charts are showing, and what the challenges and limitations of T/MC using OHATS were at that point in time. When this report was created we were using an earlier version of OHATS. The metrics charts did not automatically update with each action recorded and visitors to the site could not search the way they can now.  However, the charts in this PDF are what was used to create the charts on the current version of OHATS.

In the index of videos these would be #1 and #2.  Then Log in might be #3, recording actions #4, metrics #5 and search #6.  You might conclude to pointing out that with each metrics chart there is a link to a discussion page on Ning where people are able to learn more and ask questions or volunteer help.


From this people would hopefully see this as a tool that groups of people can use to support their efforts to solve problems in their communities. We  use it to help volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs grow in the Chicago region and groups in any city could do the same. However, it could also be used by any group, tracking actions of its members and supporters to solve any health, environmental and/or social problem in their community.
