      Hello Michael

      You asked:

      'I´d be grateful if someone could tell me of anyone who runs
      training courses for creating online EFL content (or in fact if
      general EFL materials writing courses). The only thing i´ve found
      is
      a workshop at IH Barcelona.'

      I don't know of any courses specialising in the creation of online
      EFL content but Leeds Metropolitan University runs the following
      course that might be of interest:

      MA Materials Development for Language Teaching

      A distinctive MA course offered either full-time or by distance
      learning.

      An MA in applied linguistics with a practical focus. Ideal for
      language teaching professionals seeking to develop principled and
      effective approaches to materials design, evaluation, development
      and implementation. The course would be suitable for language
      teachers, materials writers, publishers and editors.

      MA Director: Dr Brian Tomlinson (President of MATSDA and Editor of
      Materials Development in Language Teaching).

      Applications being considered.

      A course that I can highly recommend having completed it myself last
      year is LeTTOL (Learning to Teach Online) offered by the Sheffield
      College. The course is delivered totally online and equips
      participants with the skills needed to design and deliver online
      courses of all kinds. It has won several awards and is widely
      recognised.

      See: http://www.sheffcol.ac.uk/lettol/

      Hope these are of use.

      Best wishes

      Julia

          If you're based in Britain, Netskills, an outfit working out of the
          University of Newcastle, does day-courses on Virtual Learning Environments
          (it might also do on-line courses). I attended one and its value was in
          getting you to think about the pedagogical questions 'why' and 'to what
          extent' any material should be put on-line, rather than the purely technical
          questions of how it can be done. We also got a chance to look at a number of
          good and bad examples.
