Staff trained on multimedia production

Twenty nine personnel from different state universities and agencies learned how to prepare multimedia materials in a training-workshop held at the One Stop Information Shop in MMSU Crops Research Laboratory last October 10-12.


Spearheaded by the Ilocos Agriculture, Aquatic, and Resources Research and Development Consortium (ILAARRDEC), the participants were trained on scriptwriting, photography, videography, and video and audio editing.


Nine of the participants were from MMSU - three from Research Directorate; three from the Office for Strategic Communication; two from the College of Industrial Technology; and one from the Extension Directorate - while the others came from the University of Northern Philippines in Vigan City; Ilocos Sur Polytechnic State College in Sta. Maria, Ilocos Sur; and the regional offices of the Department of Agriculture, National Tobacco Administration, Agricultural Training Institute, Philippine Fiber Development Authority, Philippine Rice Research Institute, and the National Economic Development Authority. Prof. Randolf Sabado and Karl John Pagada of Benguet State University served as resource speakers.


After the training, the participants expressed confidence that they can develop multimedia materials on the mature technologies developed by their agencies.


Prof. Love Grace dC. Campano, knowledge management coordinator of ILAARRDEC, said the consortium member-agencies have many generated technologies that can be packaged, adding that these need to be disseminated to their intended beneficiaries.


"That is why the multimedia are considered as reliable tools for storing information that can be readily shared to the various stakeholders," she said.
