Course and Enrollment About ICT Development In AVA UNAPCICT

Beberapa organisasi dunia di bawah naungan PBB sering sekali memberikan pelatihan bagi negara-negara anggotanya. Sebagaian dilakukan secara offline, sebagian besar diberikan secara online dengan kesempatan pertemuan offline dengan syarat dan ketentuan berlaku. Salah satunya UN-APCICT (Asia and Pacificย  Training Centre for Information and Communication Technology for Development). APCICT memberikan segmen khusus diklat jarak jauh melalui AVA atau APCICT Virtual Academic yang berpusat di Seoul, Korea. Siapa pun boleh ikut serta dengan register terlebih dahulu dan kenegaraan kita masuk dalam member UN.

AVA menyediakan modul-modul pelatihan yang terbagi dalam beberapa modul. Masing-masing modul disertai video ceramah dari tentor dan quiz. Agak sulit mellihat viceo-nya. Yang penting adalah pelajari modulnya dan ikuti quiz-nya. Kenapa penting? Karena Quiz tersebut dinilai dan diranking. Kombinasi nilai terbaik dan paper case study terbaik berhak untuk mengikuti pendidikan offline mereka. Mantap!!!! Selain modul berbahasa Inggris, mereka menyediakan modul berbahasa Indonesia. Mungkin karena banyak peserta berasal dari Indonesia dan jalinan kerja sama yang erat antara kita dan mereka. Tapi saya sarankan membaca modul berbahasa Inggris saja. Lumayan pusing membaca modul bahasa Indonesia karena terjemahannya agak berantakan. Mungkin pakai google translate….๐Ÿ˜€.

Topik setiap modul berbeda-beda tapi berkelanjutan dengan memberikan contoh case study di beberapa negara. Tiap modul terbagi dalam beebera pa sesi atau sub modul dengan tema berbeda tetapi berkaitan dengan tema besar yang dibahas. Ini adalah beberapa topik modul yang diberikan:

  • The Linkage between ICT Application and Meaningful Development
  • ICT for Development (ICTD) Policy, Process and Governance
  • e-Government Applications
  • ICT Trends for Government Leaders
  • Internet Governance

Pertama kali mengikuti quiz, harus berkali-kali attendance class karena progress-nya dihitung bertahap sampai mencapai 100%. Tapi dengan format baru, semuanya diserahkan ke kita. Apakah cukup sekali dengan catatan nilai tidak bisa dirubah, atau, berkali-kali dimana kita bisa menyimpan jawaban kita dan merubahnya sewaktu-waktu. Pihak AVA juga cukup kooperatif dengan memberi pengumuman-pengumuman melalui email, terutama tentang batas waktu penyelesaian training agar bisa mengikuti even APCICT.
