To leverage the capacity of Southeast Asian human resources by using the modern ICT technology with a large number of participants, and economy of scale for the implementation, the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization Secretariat (SEAMES) and SEAMEO Regional Learning Centre (SEAMOLEC) in cooperation with SEAMEO Regional Centres have developed a capacity development programme called “SEAMEO Community Development: Online Lecture Series and Training Programmes”.


“The DAAD is the world’s largest funding organization for the international exchange of students and researchers.” Since its establishment in 1925, DAAD has provided funding to more than 1.9 million scholars both in Germany and overseas. The provision has been not only limited to grants and scholarship but also other activities including German Higher Education Institutes internationalization, German studies and language promotion, as well as facilitation to developing countries’ higher education development and policy advisory on culture, education, and development issues.


On the occasion of SEAMEO 50th Anniversary in 2015, a project entitled SEAMEO 50x3 Schools’ Network was developed with its aims to leverage capacity of school leaders, teachers, and students through capacity development programmes and other contributions from 21 SEAMEO Regional Centres, SEAMEO stakeholders, and partners.


To develop Southeast Asian teachers to be equipped with advanced ICT skills and be able to utilise the online platform to promote the new way of teaching or can become more creative ways to engage students in collaborative learning, as well as promote partnership and share teaching practices and content among teachers across the Southeast Asian countries, the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization Secretariat (SEAMEO Secretariat) will organise a Free Online EDMODO Training for Teachers “Getting to Know Closer to Edmodo as an Online Learning Platform”


Virtual learning platforms are taking over the traditional text based learning in the digital era we live in. Therefore the professionals in the field of education should look for ways to match up teaching and learning process with the available digital tools and platforms to promote a realistic learning experience for the students. Augmented Reality is such an effort taken to correlate learning and the 21st century technology.

Augmented reality (AR) integrates digital information with the user's environment in real time. Unlike virtual reality, which creates a totally artificial environment, augmented reality uses the existing environment and overlays new information on top of it. AR creates direct, automatic, and actionable links between the physical world and electronic information. This goes beyond mobile computing and bridges the gap between virtual world and real world, both spatially and cognitively. With AR, the digital information appears to become part of the real world.
