I. Virtual Inset Participation and Coverage
The Virtual ‘In-Service Training (INSET) for Public School Teachers’ is the Department of Education’s (DepEd) biggest online user activity to date. The online training – conducted for 5 days, from March 15 to March 19, 2021 was live-streamed on DepEd Facebook, YouTube, and StreamYard platforms. It was
organized by DepEd’s Information and Communications Technology Service – Educational Technology Unit (ICTS-EdTech) under the Office of the Undersecretary for Administration (OUA).
475,115 participants nationwide were certified after taking part in the virtual INSET (VINSET) live sessions.
The combined views from the different streaming platforms was recorded at 4,968,659 total reach on the first day of the event, which included public and private school teachers, college and university professors, and college education students. The figure is expected to continue to rise since the sessions are also constructed in an online asynchronous format. It will close on May 8, 2021.
Participation in the INSET is voluntary.
Teachers’ engagement and training at their own pace is encouraged, hence, the necessary training materials are both uploaded to the DepEd Commons and the DepEd Learning Management System (DLMS). Training materials feature discussions on integration and utilization of DepEd Commons, DepEd TV, DepEd Learning Management System (DLMS), and Open Educational Resources (OERs), among others.
