"AdvocacyAssembly.org, a MOOC Platform for Advocacy in MENA"
ID: 135 —  Mahmood Enayat (Founder, Small Media)
Advocacy Assembly is a free learning community for human rights activists and journalists. The platform is the brainchild of London based non-for-profit organisation Small Media who designed and built it in 2015. They are in charge of the platform’s maintenance and security. But the platform does not belong to one organisation, instead it is a collaborative space where training organisations from around the world can upload their best training material and reach new audiences. 

"StoryMaker the Secure Storytelling Tool and Trainer"
ID: 280 — Small World News, Inc.
StoryMaker v2 is an open source app helping anyone learn to make great multimedia stories and safely produce and publish them with their mobile device. The final release out of beta comes with the inclusion of a Catalog of new content packs. Content packs provide Lessons, Guides, and Templates for creating new stories. StoryMaker protects users identity by storing files encrypted and enabling users to implement a pin and app-hiding feature to disguise it from perusal of the device. In countries where the internet is censored, StoryMaker allows users to publish to Facebook, YouTube, Soundcloud, Flickr, and elsewhere via Tor. Come see a demo of the StoryMaker app and hear about how it's being used around the world to support activists to tell their own stories with nothing but a mobile phone.

"CoPilot: A Censorship Sandbox for Interactive Digital Security Trainings"
ID: TBA — Internews

"Right to hide – online tools for users (at risk) around the world”
ID: 202 — Fanny Hidvégi (Hungarian Civil Liberties Union)
On top of  global trends and challenges to digital rights, the political and legal changes since 2010 have put Hungarian  journalists, whistleblowers, and activists at a high risk. The Hungarian Civil Liberties Union has realized that our legal expertise and solutions are not effective enough. We decided to create a website for every internet user to promote privacy enhancing technologies in an accessible way and train people how to use them. The site is currently available in English and Hungarian and the Spanish version is on the way. We are looking for partners to create the site in Russian. We can’t wait to hear your feedback and improve the site! What is your favorite tool to protect privacy?

Besides my legal projects about privacy, data protection and freedom of information I have been working on the Hungarian Civil Liberties Union's new website to protect only privacy. Check out righttohide.com and tell me how to improve!
