OTPIC Officially Retired

As of December 2, 2005, the Online Training Program on Intractable Conflict (OTPIC) has been officially retired, and is no longer open to new registrations.

The successor to OTPIC is a course called Dealing Constructively with Intractable Conflicts (DCIC). The new curriculum is built around one of our major projects, Beyond Intractability, and offers a much more extensive and informative set of learning materials than that available through OTPIC.

Multilingual Capabilities
Although all of the material is now available only in English, we have tried to write in a style that we hope will be understandable to people with limited English skills. An online dictionary provides definitions of specialized terms which may not be found in standard translations dictionaries. We are also including multilingual program descriptions. As a further translation aid, we have included a link to AltaVista's free online translation service. While this is primitive and should be used with caution, it may still be useful.
Online Discussions and Listserver
An online discussion and listserve is being established for this program.  Links to other listserves of interest are also given.
Access Options and Suggestions for Using this Program More Efficiently
Access options area available for people with a high capacity internet connection, a low capacity internet connection, computers without an Internet connection, and for those without a computer. This section contains echnical notes on how to get the most out of the system in a variety of settings.
This glossary contains short definitions of terms that are used in ways that differ from common English usage, or for some other reason might not be easily understood.
References and Further Reading
        This is a list of books and articles that we have found useful in our study of intractable conflicts.
Useful Links
Many of the problem and treatment write-ups have links to outside sources of information (on the Internet), but this is a short list of World Wide Web Sites which have a great deal of information which relates directly to the topics we are dealing with here. A longer list of sites of varying degrees of relevance to intractable conflict can be found at http://www.colorado.edu/conflict/othersites.htm
