The online training, “Media Production for Publicizing Community Products and Services,” under Khon Kaen University’s U2T Project, took place on 30 June 2021 from 9:00am-12:00pm. It was organized by Asst. Prof. Dr. Arunee Promkham, the head of the Department of Agricultural Extension and Agricultural Systems, Faculty of Agriculture, Khon Kaen University.
The training attracted 26 university students and recent graduates working for the U2T Project in Khok Sa-nga Subdistrict, Phon District and Ban Thaen Subdistrict, Chonnabot District in Khon Kaen. Media production knowledge and skills gained from the workshop will be applied toward publicizing the products and services already available in these communities.
The trainer, Mr. Paisarn Ekawat, a scholar in audiovisual media affiliated with the Department of Agricultural Extension and Agricultural Systems, covered topics such as digital media design, media designing tools, and multimedia (VDO) production.
The event was a continuation of Asst. Prof. Dr. Arunee’s work as a U2T coordinator. While overseeing U2T work in Khok Sa-nga and Ban Thaen Subdistricts, she realized the benefits that enhanced media production skills would have for publicizing the high-quality products and outstanding people in the area. Not only would successful PR lead to market advantages, it would help to spread knowledge of project activities to the general public.
Topics included were: 1. Digital Design, 2. Design Value, 3. Principles of Quality Design, 4. Artistic Elements, 5. Media Designing Tools, 6. Multimedia Production, 7. Multimedia Scriptwriting, 8. Photography Techniques, and 9. Sequencing. In terms of workshop components, training participants practiced doing Mockups and E-Books.
Finally, the project would like to thank Mr. Paisarn for his collaboration and the support that he offered throughout the training. It is hoped that the session was beneficial to the graduates and students who attended and that all participants will be able to apply and build on what they learned to carry out media production for the project.
