During the World Debate Forum held in Botswana in January 2011 many African debate organizers said that they needed basic training materials, but that the poor conditions of local Internet connectivity made it difficult for them to use videos. As a solution, Alfred Snider (World Debate Institute and Debate Central) volunteered to take video training files and turn them into audio only, then organize them and make them available for download.
The podcasts include presentations from the World Schools Debate Academy, International Debate Academy, East Debate Institute, the World Debate Institute's world schools session and the Serbia Debate Academy. There are also two WUDC format debates from the USA and two WSDC format debates from Europe. They are available as mp3 files. Download them, load them up in any mp3 player, and enjoy.
