Lectures on Getting familiar with the workspace and frame structure, Using templates, design and run time settings and Constructing End of Module test (EOM) were discussed by Jose Rey Alo, e-Learning process advisor of ATI.

The same participants from the Phase I of the training were on-hand for the Phase II and were joined by selected courseware developers from ATI-Regional Training Centers (ATI-RTC) I, III, IV-A, VIII, X, XI and Caraga.

The training was held last August 30 to September 4, 2010 at the Waterfront Insular Hotel in Davao City.(Benedict C. Natividad)
