Fiji International Telecommunications Ltd (FINTEL) is facilitating an e-Learning course program between Fiji National University's (FNU) National Training Productivity Centre (NTPC) and the Asian Productivity Organisation (APO) connecting the FNU/NTPC site at Nabua with six other participating countries.
FINTEL provisioned the program through its mobile videoconferencing service with direct radio connectivity to FINTEL's International IP Transit (Internet) Gateway.
"E-learning through videoconferencing service is a major cost saving to tertiary institutions and corporate organisations when weighed against travel, accommodation and the associated social costs," George Samisoni, FINTEL's manager commercial and business development said.
The e-Learning course on 'Lean Production System' saw thirty-three Fiji participants from various companies in the manufacturing sector participating in live interactions with their resource persons from leading business universities in Japan and participants from the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Pakistan and Thailand.
FNU's e-Learning training co-ordinator Kelera Tukana said the program was a success and thanked FINTEL's expertise in accommodating their request to bring the technology into their facility.
She added that it would set the platform for more e-Learning programs in the future.
FINTEL facilitated a similar e-learning course program last year.
