<p class="text-muted">Totem helps security trainers and learners extend the learning experience from a few days of actual offline training into a more continuous and on-going, interactive learning environment. For example, trainers can curate courses about basic tools and concepts which the learners can take before a face-to-face, offline training commences. Totem can also be used after a face-to-face training has concluded, so learners can continue to learn advanced concepts and stay engaged with the trainers using secure communication methods provided via the platform.</p>

<h4 class="service-heading">Increased knowledge retention</h4>
<p class="text-muted">Although very effective and extremely useful, face-to-face, offline training is limited in scope. It is often difficult for trainers and learners to exchange knowledge about evolving threats, tools and tactics after a training has concluded. Totem aims to provide a platform where trainers can continue to exchange new knowledge about digital security and privacy with learners they have trained in the past via frequently updated curricula. This enables activists & journalists to retain and improve their knowledge about the topics that they have received previous training on.</p>

<h3>The Totem Methodology </h3>
<h3>The Totem methodology </h3>
<p>Since the project's inception in 2016, the Totem team has collaborated with a wide range of activists, digital security trainers and online education experts to develop a shared methodology and a process to help trainers create effective training curricula using the platform. We continue to support trainers use our methodology in creating new content and adopting existing curricula into courses targeted towards a specific community of activists or journalists.</p>
<h3>Curated Course Collections</h3>
<h3>Curated course collections</h3>
<p>Totem provides trainers the ability to pick and choose from the various courses already offered on the platform to create a "collection" of courses which may be relevant topics for a specific activist group or community.

<h3>Curricula Development Workshops & Sprints</h3>
<h3>Curricula development workshops & sprints</h3>
<p>The Totem team frequently organises workshops and sprints in collaboration with various activist groups, NGOs and journalists to collaboratively develop curricula for a specific community or context.</p>
