ICW launches anticorruption e-learning channel
The Jakarta Post
The Indonesia Corruption Watch (ICW) launched on Thursday the Anticorruption Academy, a free online learning platform about corruption and ways to prevent it, as part of its attempt to promote anticorruption values in the organization’s graft prevention campaign.
“We created this online platform to provide antigraft education that can be received and accessed by many people across the country, because it is very expensive to provide face-to-face sessions in every region,” ICW coordinator Adnan Topan Husodo said during the platform launch on Thursday.
The online learning platform offers six courses, such as “Introduction to Corruption for Teens” and “Corruption and Poverty”. The ICW will open more courses depending on enrollment, Adnan went on to say.
Apart from the watchdog researchers and activists, the academy will also present several PhD-level tutors, such as Paku Utama, an asset tracking and recovery scientist from forensic consultant company Wikrama Utama.
The platform has been lauded by several institutions, including the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK), the Education and Culture Ministry, the Environment and Forestry Ministry as well as the Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Ministry.
KPK chairman Agus Rahardjo, who was present during the launch in Jakarta, said the platform was in line with the commission’s Anticorruption Learning Center, which would be launched in August. “Maybe we can work together to provide education on corruption,” he said. (ebf)
