Going forward with YARIS and TESS
In a global sanitary context still subject to the COVID-19 pandemic, GoGIN continues its activities in support of the Yaoundé Architecture, concentrating on the finalisation of the YARIS information sharing platform and the TESS e-learning system. The initial versions are being tested by a group of users, trained beforehand by the development team. In addition, promotion actions are under consolidation towards the various audiences (decision-makers, managerial and operational staff of the YA centres, other organisations involved in the maritime domain).
Train-the-Trainer session on YARIS
Capacity building activities in the Gulf of Guinea are one of the pillars around which GoGIN is anchored. Approximately 20 participants (GoGIN team and representatives from ICC, CRESMAO, CRESMAC and ARSTM) were introduced and trained on the initial version of the YARIS platform. The IT development team elaborated the training material and held distance training sessions over four days (4-7 May). Read more.
From May 11 to 14, around twenty participants (GoGIN team, ICC, CRESMAO, CRESMAC and ARSTM representatives) were able to practice with the TESS platform creating and managing courses using Moodle software, the core of the instrument. Read more
