DA-PCC’s knowledge products, extension services go digital

Contactless payments, online shopping, and virtual conferences and meetings are among the regular tasks borne out of the digital revolution that have now become a way of life due to the protracted pandemic.

Joining the digital transformation is the DA-Philippine Carabao Center (DA-PCC) that digitalized its extension and advisory services to ensure accessibility of its knowledge products by a wider audience.

The DA-PCC launched its Knowledge Portal (or simply K-Portal), which serves as a hub or a one-stop e-platform for all knowledge products (in various formats) produced by the agency through its Knowledge Management Division (KMD).

“You can explore and navigate this portal like a website. Once you subscribe to this platform, you will be updated and notified through your email every time the agency has new publication releases,” KMD Chief Dr. Eric Palacpac said.

Meanwhile, another digital innovation of the agency also through the KMD is the Virtual Tour of the DA-PCC national headquarters in the Science City of Muñoz, Nueva Ecija, which not only shows a glimpse of what it is like visiting the DA-PCC facilities but also provides useful information about water buffalo production and accompanying technologies.

“As you click the link of the Virtual Tour, you are a step closer to this simulated but equally immersive learning experience right in the comfort of your homes or wherever you are currently located. This is very timely now that we’re still in a pandemic situation,” Dr. Palacpac averred.

The DA-PCC invites everyone to register and subscribe to its K-Portal through k-portal.pcc.gov.ph and Virtual Tour through vtour.pcc.gov.ph for them to be updated on the goings-on in the implementation of its program and services and to be aware not only of the significant results of research and development studies and undertakings of the agency but also of the opportunities in the carabao industry.
