Sub-Regional Workshop on DevInfo ver. 6.0
The Sub-Regional Workshop on DevInfo, to be held in Tripoli, Libya, from 22 to 26 November 2009, is organized by the African Development Bank and the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), and in close collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Libya and hosted by the General Information Authority in Tripoli.
The workshop will be inaugurated at 09:00 hours on Sunday, 22 November 2009 in Al-Safwa Hotel – Tripoli/Libya.
The workshop participants are from the National Statistical Offices, Ministries, and UN agencies. Participants must be proficient in DevInfo v5.0 or have passed the DevInfo e-learning orientation: (http://www.devinfo.info/e-learning/en/index.htm).
These guidelines outline the suggested time frame over five days for each session included in the Database Administration Training. However, adjustments to the agenda may need to be done to meet the needs and expectations of the participants. The agenda for the Database Administration is integrated with the Orientation Seminar and User Interface. In many cases, the Orientation Seminar will be attended by a larger group, including senior officials, to learn about the system. This option gives these officers a chance to see the system and understand what kinds of presentations of data can be generated from the system.
After the orientation, these officials may then designate their professional and support staff to be given hands-on training in the actual use of the database. Each DevInfo training workshop is organized by sessions. Each session begins with a presentation of the key topics included in the session. The presentation is followed by a Step-by-Step exercise to reinforce the concepts learned during the session. Next, participants are given time for hands-on workbook exercises.
This training workshop covers the basic concepts and features of the DevInfo User Interface and Database Administration application. It provides hands-on, step-by-step instructions on how to use the database administration modules to create a database template and then enter data to produce a database. The course also covers the steps required for multiple-language support and customization of the database system to user-specified requirements. On successful completion of this training course, the participants will be able to use the DevInfo Database Administration modules to make new databases and to update/modify existing databases.
