She made these remarks at the opening ceremony of regional training programme on LMS which began on Monday with an opening ceremony at the SEAMEO Voctech.

The two-week regional training programme will be run until January 25 and sees the participation of 22 individuals from the 10 ASEAN member countries.

“When resources are limited we need to strategically select programmes that offer higher impacts and show to the stakeholders that we have conducted a study to support the decision in reaching out to the unreached citizens of Southeast Asia,” she said. She highlighted that this training is highly relevant, especially for those involved in highly interactive and personalised learner-centric online experiences.

“Our aim here is to provide participants with a good grounding on the main consideration in implementing LMS in their respective institutions with the development of appropriate learning contents and relevant skills of LMS,” she said.
