Multimedia-based leaning materials support JICA's Knowledge Co-creation Programs through before-after training
Multimedia-based leaning materials are utilized in various training courses which JICA imprements.
If trainees prepare what they will learn on training courses in Japan by using multimedia-based leaning materials before visiting, from the voice of experience, it makes their learning more effective that trainees will be able to start their training programs from higher level and to do attractive questions and to answer instead of asking basic questions at places they visit in short term. Moreover when they returned to their country after training, it is available to use multimedia-based leaning materials for reviewing, or sharing what they learned in training toward the person who concerned with their work.
For training planners, it is useful as a reference when they are going to arrange teaching programs, and as a playing content during their training term. Not only in the legular materials of every TOP10 ranking, following materials were utilized in the trainings in FY2015, 2016.
