Manila, Philippines [29 July 2020] - Adamson University is among the local schools heavily affected by COVID-19, but the challenges posed by the pandemic did not dampen the university’s resolve to provide the best possible education for its students.
To help Adamson University effectively transition to e-Learning, the university partnered with PLDT Enterprise to ensure that all of their students will get the top-quality online education amid the global pandemic.
Fr. Marcelo V. Manimtim, CM - President, Adamson University, says, “Every student should have a fair shot at learning. We know that not everyone has the capacity to access learning materials or participate in online classes at home. Our partnership with PLDT Enterprise will make it possible for the students who need this extra assistance.”
Recognizing the challenges of its students during this time, Adamson University introduced Blackboard Learn Ultra, a learning management system that would help their students receive a comprehensive learning experience even outside the confines of their campuses. The university also began training their faculty members to help them transition from face-to-face interaction to distance learning. Moreover, Adamson also increased their academic resources and digital library to complement the online learning experience.
Besides facilitating the acquisition of a capable laptop for their students and faculty members, Adamson University will also provide free regular monthly data support for the first semester through PLDT Enterprise’s SMART Giga Study Plan and Premium iGate connectivity.
“PLDT Enterprise has readied its infrastructure to meet the needs of educational institutions at this time and for the foreseeable future,” says Jovy Hernandez, ePLDT President & CEO and SVP & Head for PLDT and Smart Enterprise Business Groups. “Adamson University needed a stable connection and the capacity to onboard all students and faculty in e-Learning, and we look forward to enabling these functions for them.”
With the SMART Giga Study Data Plan, students and faculty members are assured that they will have mobile data connection wherever they may be and whenever they need it. “This e-Learning service will ensure that both students and teachers of Adamson will have the capabilities to engage in collaborative learning in virtual classrooms and consistent connection to online learning resources for individual research,” shares PLDT Enterprise Corporate Relationship Management Head Dick Perez.
Adamson’s administrative system connectivity also gets an update through PLDT’s premium iGate service. This network upgrade provides faster and even more reliable internet service within Adamson’s premises to help bolster its administration and staff’s ability to carry out e-Learning and academic efforts for their students.
“Through this partnership, we will ensure that Adamson University has the necessary connectivity and collaboration tools to continue remote learning for its students regardless of the challenges given by the pandemic,” says Vic Tria, First Vice President of PLDT Enterprise.
PLDT Enterprise aims to redefine the future of learning through its continuous engagements with universities, colleges, schools and learning institutions across the country so no learner is left behind.
