RTI Distance Learning Programme Using Video Conferencing Mode
IMG has successfully launched the Distance Training Programme using Video Conferencing Facilities of the Government of Kerala for training programmes on Right to Information Act, 2005. In this, IMG could conduct training programs simultaneously at multiple locations with Video Conferencing facility. 11 districts (other than the districts where IMG has its Centres) have been grouped into two and training using this distance learning mode is being imparted. The faculty and the selected District Co-ordinators will moderate the process, facilitating effective knowledge sharing .This would enable fast roll out to the entire State and better outreach.
The present Distance Learning System has a limitation that participants need to come to a training location where the video-conferencing facility is located. Besides, there is difficulty in getting suitable slots for training. We are in the process of setting up a Webinar facility which would enable participants with web camera attached to their respective computer systems and connected to the network, either on KSWAN or through broadband to participate in the training programme. Webinar solutions improve the meeting and training experience by using the latest technology features. A key feature of a Webinar is its interactive elements - the ability to give, receive and discuss information. Other advantage of webinar is to conduct multiple training programmes simultaneously.
The proposed model of Webinar being set up can have 25 participants and 5 hosts simultaneously. The Webinar facility is expected to be operational in the next few months.
