SEAMEO CELLL ATTEND CAPACITY BUILDING WORKSHOP FOR SEAMEO CENTRES ON THE THEME OF SEAMEO EDUCATION AGENDA AND VIRTUAL PROGRAMMES
With the purpose of utilising ICT technology to increase intellectual capacity of Southeast Asian citizens, SEAMEO Secretariat, in cooperation with SEAMEO centres, took the initiative in operating the programme entitled “SEAMEO Online Lecture Series and Training Programmes”, expected to offer various online training courses and lectures in diverse academic topics.
To expand the beneficial impact of the programme and engage a higher volume of regional participants, from 4-15 September 2017, SEAMEO Secretariat organised a Capacity Building Workshop on the theme of SEAMEO Education Agenda and Virtual Programmes for SEAMEO centres to enhance the capabilities of educational staffs in delivering courses via online platform. Two staffs from SEAMEO CELLL were sent to the workshop.
During the two-week capacity building workshop, the participants were introduced to the whole process of conducting online classes through the online video conference platform (WebEx) and gained hands-on experience of hosting and moderating online sessions. The participants also practiced promoting courses via the Internet and generating e-certifcates. Especially, this event opened up opportunities for future inter-centre collaboration by encouraging SEAMEO centres to co-organise online programmes within the expertise of each centre.
