The BaLinkBayan Team of the Commission on Filipinos Overseas (CFO) conducted a website analytics training to 43 focal persons and IT personnel from 24 partner Local Government Units on July 13, 2021.
A joint project of the CFO Project Management Division (PMD) and Management Information System Division (MISD), the training aims to introduce and familiarize LGU partners with the basic features of MonsterInsights plug-in and Google Analytics that will capacitate them in the evaluation and development of their websites.
In his welcome remarks, CFO Chairperson and Secretary. Francisco P. Acosta extended his gratitude to the participants and expressed his hope that the training will enable partner LGUs in evaluating their respective portals and perform necessary improvements for better implementation.
“May we all have the mindset of ensuring that our localized webpages achieve its objectives of tapping into the potential of our overseas Filipinos for nation building and of developing continuous and positive relationships with our former constituents abroad.”- Secretary F.P. Acosta
During the training, MISD’s Ms. Alyssa Jeanne Gozo discussed the fundamental tools built in MonsterInsights and Google Analytics which are used in tracking online traffics and managing website activities of the localized BaLinkBayan Portal.
Meanwhile, Ms. Marjorie Aboga led a live demonstration of the process to ensure engaging and inclusive participation among local project managers and IT personnel.
Bearing relevant knowledge and skills, Undersecretary Astravel Pimentel-Naik lauded the participants and entrust to them the responsibility of using their learnings to analyze the needs and situation of our kababayan overseas in order to provide appropriate help and excellent service.
Presently working with 36 diverse local government unit partners for the development of the Motherland, the Commission on Filipinos Overseas faithfully commit to continue to revitalize and strengthen this established relationship through consistent conduct of technical and operational trainings and consultation meetings in its day ahead.
