One of the visions of the National Gender and Resource Program (NGRP) is to create a platform that is accessible, innovative and informative to increase awareness and knowledge of policymakers, public officers, gender trainers and even the public in gender mainstreaming.
The rapid advances in information and communication technology (ICT) provided a lot of opportunities to have instant access to information. Everything is now going digital and can be easily reached by our fingertips. ICT has dramatically influenced the shift of traditional form of learning to different types such as mobile learning, electronic learning, and digital learning.
The creation of online GAD technical assistance platform reduces the demand for face-to-face technical assistance in view of the current pandemic. It will also enable the learners to complete the modules in their own pace.
Meanwhile, the GAD webinars will also benefit the individuals, specifically the members of the GFPS of government agencies, as they can learn gender mainstreaming in their own time and pace. Moreover, GAD webinars are location flexible, allowing the learners to access the platform anytime and anywhere. It is also more efficient in terms of sharing updates on the latest GAD policies and other HAD-related information among GAD practitioners and GAD Resource Pool.
The Webopedia1 defines webinar as a presentation, lecture, workshop or seminar that is transmitted over the Web using a video conferencing software. The Webinar should have the ability to give, receive and discuss information in real-time.
