As part of an effort for social distancing due to the spread of COVID-19, anti-corruption education courses of the Anti-Corruption Training Institute (ACTI) are offered via ACRC YouTube channel “Anti-Corruption & Civil Rights Vision.”
ACTI established under the Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission (ACRC, Chairperson Pak Un Jong) provides real-time online education programs utilizing its YouTube channel in order to normalize the operation of anti-corruption offline education that has been stalled due to the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic.
ACTI provided “the Basic Course for the 1st Anti-Corruption Education Instructor” for two days from March 30 to 31 via its YouTube channel for the first time.
750 public officials and non-public officials who aspire to anti-corruption evangelists applied for this education program, and out of these applicants, 250 people, three times more than the number of people who attended the existing offline education program, watched the online media lecture in real time.

Starting from the second week of April, a total of 10 online education programs, including “the 2nd Basic Course for Anti-Corruption Education Instructor” and “the 1st Course for Improvement of Anti-Corruption Capacity” are provided online via ACRC YouTube channel. In April, some 1,400 individuals, more than double the number from last year, took the courses demonstrating public officials' keen interest in the online anti-corruption education.
The head of ACTI Kim Won Young said, “In line with the social distancing policy for tackling the spread of COVID-19, we have been providing real-time online anti-corruption training programs. We are devoted to enhancing the effectiveness of the education by keeping up with the recent trend in the education sector to adopt the blended learning approach in which both off- and online courses are available.”
