Subject: GUIDELINES ON WEBINAR SESSIONS
The Office of the Undersecretary for Administration (OUA) through the Information and Communications Technology Service (ICTS) supports the initiatives of our partners and stakeholders in hosting different webinar sessions. As part of the new normal, training development and upskilling have become the trend in helping the teaching profession further.
With the great demand in attending different webinar sessions, the public is strongly reminded to make sure that they always validate the legitimacy of the companies or groups conducting the sessions. Likewise, the use of DepEd seal should be in accordance to DepEd Order No. 63, 2. 2011, and must not be used to misinterpret or mislead the public in any activity not sanctioned by the Department. Accordingly, webinar sessions must be first approved by the Regional Office or Schools Division Office prior to its conduct and posting in social media or the web.
The ICTS-Educational Technology Unit (ETU) provides free webinar session via Facebook Live at www.facebook.com/depededtech and YouTube Live Stream at www.youtube.com/c/educationtechnologyunit covering topics about emerging technologies, Open Educational Resources, ICT skills development program and distance earning modalities. The webinar sessions are recorded to allow future reference and review. Teachers are highly encouraged to participate and learn new skills aligned with the DepEd Digital Rise Program.
For dissemination and appropriate action.
