How to use ORB resources
The ORB platform gives you several methods to help find the right content for you:
All the resources are free to access and, and no registration is required. When you're using the resources, and especially if you're adapting them, remember to keep within the terms of the license and include attribution. Every resource on ORB is openly licensed, however some have restrictions on creating adaptations or translations.
For helpful resources on Creative Commons licenses, visit our FAQs on Creative Commons Licensing for Global Health Content, or the Creative Commons website.
Once you've found the resources you're looking for, each resource will have at least one download or web link option. Use these to save the resource onto your laptop or mobile device. You can use the resources for your own self-study or simply integrate them into your training program or workshop.
Here are some ideas for how you could use the content in your training program:
- Copy the videos onto SD cards, to distribute to health workers to watch on their mobile devices
- Integrate the resources into a mobile learning or eLearning training course
- Use as teaching aids in classroom or in-person courses
- Use the videos with community members to help reinforce health messages (for example about handwashing, or breastfeeding)
Soon we'll be adding tools to the ORB platform to make it easy for you to create mobile enabled training courses, using and adapting the ORB resources.

We'd love to hear from you about how you've used the ORB resources. If you have a story to share, please contact us.
If you have some great resources to share, please submit them to the ORB platform. To submit a resource, you'll need to register (simple and free), then use the Add Resource form to submit your resource.
All submitted resources must meet the ORB Guidelines and Criteria to be made available publically through the platform.
If you have many resources to share, then consider becoming an ORB Content Partner. ORB Content Partners get extra benefits, such as access to the ORB API, a customized organization page and usage and analytics reports for their resources.
