Arellano University (AU) partnered with Globe in the acquisition of Internet modems suitable for blended learning.
Face-to-face instruction continues to be out of the picture due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In hopes of still providing a safe learning environment for students, educational institutions have pushed for continuing education through synchronous and asynchronous online learning. In line with this, Arellano University (AU) partnered with Globe in the acquisition of Internet modems suitable for blended learning.
The university secured Home Prepaid WiFi units for students, faculty, and staff, which will prove helpful in the delivery of AU’s blended learning program known as the Pegasus Learning Management System (PLMS) to the homes of all its students in all levels for school year 2020 to 2021. All Home Prepaid WiFi kits include a WiFi modem and a LAN port, free 10GB of data allocation, and access to educational applications that prove valuable in the online learning process.
“Globe was the connectivity provider of choice because of the plug and play feature of its modem kit which restricts the users to stay at home and to further protect them from risks and dangers associated with the COVID-19 pandemic,” shares Francisco P.V. Cayco, Chairman of Arellano University. “All deans, principals, faculty, and students will be given a free Globe prepaid WiFi plug and play modem kits with a local area network (LAN) port and an initial load of 10GB for internet connectivity. Each modem kit has five terminals that allow five users access to online telecommunication, making it suitable for use of multiple members of the family.”
Mr. Francisco Cayco adds that through this partnership, it is consistent with AU’s mission of providing equitable access to quality education and making quality education available even to those who are disadvantaged. AU aims to bridge the gap to make education available to all but still within a learning environment where students, faculty, officers, and staff are safe, secure, and healthy.
Arellano University (AU) is one of the country’s prestigious educational institutions named after the first Filipino chief justice, Cayetano Arellano. Since opening its doors in 1938, the university has evolved into a network of campuses. At present, the AU system boasts of seven campuses across Metro Manila.
By bridging teachers to information and technology that enable continuous learning, especially during times of crisis, Globe continues to prove itself an invaluable partner in promoting 21st Century Learning and in improving resilience in education.
