I am very thankful to Microsoft and for you, for giving opportunity to participate in saksam IT campion training program. From this 10 days program I personally have got benefit by learning about the basics in computer operating, particularly about shortcuts like pin, peek, snap, shake etc. Even though I have been using Microsoft Word from so many years I didn’t know some important basics like format painter, mirror images, sections, outline, table of contents, mailing etc., but now I have learnt about them perfectly in this program. Now a days teachers would be able to create power point to teach the lessons in the classrooms. This programme comprises sufficient information about power point like custom slide show, rehearse timings, slide master and online presentations. As a faculty of Higher Education, we should adopt new technologies to navigate the knowledge skills and to share the knowledge and new ideas in research. Creation of e-books and cloud computing is very helpful for teachers. Continue… Sound Bytes
The other interesting thing is Hotmail facility for preserving data and its applications is very useful. Microsoft word, Microsoft excel program, Microsoft outlook, Microsoft one note program and Learning content development program are helpful to all the teaching community. Soft skill training sessions are helpful in communication, personality development, managing of students class rooms, making the students as good learners through good listening process etc. Saksham program is very useful for teachers to motivate the students by using soft skills and to make the students as responsible members of society. My personal advise is, extend the program for 15 days instead of 10 days for more better result. Nagavelli Vasudevareddy, Department of Chemistry, Kakatiya University Sound Bytes
I was being enriched myself during the SAKSHAM training programme from 1st April to 10th April, 2014 which was conducted at our Kakatiya University, Warangal. I am highly indebited to Mr. Sandeep sir and Shahena madam for their valuable contribution and dedication at the training programme in so far as extending good mentorship. This was the first programme which I attended, where I learned softskills and technological skills. Such type of training programmes really bring out the hidden talents among the teaching faculty, thereby improving communication, technological, and soft skills which are required to be inculcated by every faculty member so as to mould the today's students as tomorrow's administrators in the process of building the Nation. For all I am highly thankful the team of SAKSHAM. DR.NARASIMHA CHARY, University College of Commerce & Business Management, Kakatiya University Sound Bytes
