one message, one objective: to make a difference

We hear a lot of statements in the field regarding the e-extension program of ATI right after we conduct briefings and or advocacies.

Most of these are queries on how the program works, how we monitor enrolees, how we sent out certificates, how much time do these learners spent to internet cafes in order to finish one (1) course. Or how can they reach or contact us to give briefings to their organization, colleagues and circle of friends. These and more are just one of the many classic experiences we encounter in the field.

5 e-Learning Myths Busted

As the e-Learning for Agriculture and Fisheries approaches its fifth year (launched Dec. 11, 2007), it's now easier to answer, or bust, myths/misconceptions of prospective users. I think the reason why there are myths is that fast-draw mentally: some people are quick to react negatively, or just erroneously, when something new and unexpected is brought to their attention. I have put together 5 of the most common myths/misconceptions that people had after the initial e-learning courses on agriculture and fisheries were opened for enrollment.

Cause and consequence

In November 2010 Mr. Armel Lozano sought ATI-RTC 8 assistance for his thesis “Conditions Leading to Completion and Discontinuance of Enrollees to ATI e-Learning for Agriculture and Fishery Program in Eastern Visayas”.  Seeing this as an opportunity for an improved e-Learning service to our clienteles, the Center gladly assisted him.

On learning on wheels

Electronic learning stands in direct contrast to study mission of the observation tour variety. The former allows you to amass knowledge and skills at just a click of the mouse on your computer. The latter brings you physically to the knowledge source so you could observe, investigate, take photos, and interact with the subject matter under your scrutiny. However, both distance learning and observation tours could be very edifying and fruitful experiences.
