March 2014, Quezon City, Philippines – - Officials representing the local government of Valenzuela and Department of Education’s Division of City schools-Valenzuela witnessed an important milestone in DepEd’s ALS (Alternative Learning System) on 4 March 2014 as the first ALS Connect Project was launched within the component of a live and working Virtual Campus, a social learning platform offering of 88DB Philippines. With this, Valenzuela can now offer ALS to thousands of out-of-school youth in their city, and help them graduate. The local government of Valenzuela and Department of Education’s Division of City Schools-Valenzuela applaud the move of e-learning development companies in actively pursuing online learning as an educational economic tool.
This is expected to strengthen Digital’s commitment in adding value to the educational sector. With the growing acceptance of new technological developments, this online learning best practice is anticipated to be replicated in other key areas in the Philippines. Virtual Campus, one of the fastest growing e-learning platforms, aims to help schools, organizations, associations, and companies by providing them with an easy-to-use, effective, and affordable online, social, and collaborative learning platform. It incorporates innovative and creative approaches to teaching and learning to supplement the classroom environment and support learning communities which are not limited by time and place.
