The Colmena team started the event with a tour of the beginnings of the platform and continued with a hands-on workshop on its functionalities. The online event was held on December 6 and members of the consortium highlighted the relevance of this type of training and showed their interest and commitment in learning more about Colmena’s software.
“Colmena is a good idea and tool. It will help, especially with persistent network problems,” commented Noah Okiru, Station Manager at Echami FM, highlighting the software’s advantage of working in spaces with poor connectivity.
Journalists appreciated learning about this new digital experience: “We live in fast-changing digital environments, and we have to adapt quickly,” said Samwel Abesi, General Manager at Mitumi Radio.
During 2023, Colmena will continue to create spaces for information and dialogue to reach more media and journalists interested in the application.
