STUDENTS of the Silliman University trained parents and guardians on the use of Google Drive, basic video editing, and MS Word.

The training program was offered by the university for free.

Assistant Professor Joy Dy, dean of the College of Computer Studies,

said the training program is part of the community-extension project of the CCS Confederates Student Council.

“It is in partnership with the Dr. Mariano Lao Innovation, Creation, and Invention Laboratory to help parents and guardians to become well-versed in the current online setting,” Dy said.

The first batch of participants composed of 61 parents and guardians, were trained on February 27 via ZOOM.

The university said that the Dr. Mariano Lao ICI Laboratory is known to hold free programs and webinars on computer education and online tools.

“In 2019, it launched the SU and Mariano Lao Free Computer Education Program for senior citizens, employees, and students, including those outside the SU community. The program continued in 2020 despite the pandemic,” it added.

The next free online training will be on March 27, 2021 and April 17, 2021.

The online training will be live-streamed on the Facebook page of the Dr. Mariano Lao ICI Laboratory.
