MGM, Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) and the Oral History Association of Macao jointly launched the “Community Outreach eLearning Programme– Introductory Series of Macao History & Culture” on Wednesday.
The programme aims to enhance residents’ and tourism industry practitioners’ local historical and cultural knowledge, so that they are equipped to promote and share the stories of Macao with tourists and as a result, elevate their overall tourism experience.
The launch ceremony took place at MGM Cotai on Wednesday, where Macao Polytechnic Institute (IPM) School of Humanities and Social Sciences Director Lam Fat Iam, who is also the trainer of the eLearning programme, led the “MGM National Education Series Seminar of Stories of Macao World Heritage Tourism” and shared insights of the history and world heritage of Macao with over 200 participants from MGM, industry peers, as well as various higher education institutes and relevant associations.
Having partnered with MGM and Macau Deaf Association to jointly launch the sign language eLearning programme to the public last year, this year MGTO once again worked with the industry on this endeavour.
