Despite the short notice, the Modular Object Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment (MOODLE) Training by Nephila Web Team pushed through to expose CTU participants more to virtual learning education (VLE), one of the nine (9) digitization programs under the present administration.
The MOODLE training CICT Director Johannes Camasura had with Nephila Web Technology Inc., the MOODLE partner in the Philippines, provided the platform to conduct another training across the system. CTU President Rosein A. Ancheta Jr. is aware of its positive effects toward the acquisition of learning in today’s fast-paced society hence the approval of the 3-day workshop from June 21 through 23.
Participants were engrossed at presenting their courses online as steps were easy to follow, especially in adding resources/activities to enrich students’ learning for a given topic. At the activity’s culmination, six representatives showed their outputs to the Nephila Web Team and to the rest of the trainees.
Vice President for Administration Ledesma Layon expressed her appreciation at the opening ceremony saying “[It is] a commendable effort going forward.” Her address to the attendees sparked a deeper concern on the learning process in the advent of technology.
Nephila Web Team trainer Sheila Villaroman stressed on the major benefits of VLE: (1) develops the university’s economic sustainability, being engaged in ASEAN, (2) aids in the full implementation of salient features of K-12, and (3) develops massive online courses for dropouts.
With CTU’s established distance learning in the graduate school, the flipped classroom/blended learning/full online learning are surest alternatives to try on for the undergraduate level or senior high. UPO
