In 2020, the Coronavirus outbreak shook the world, and the government advised everyone to stay home. The community quarantines greatly affected the work and education sector. Schools closed, and students stayed home, coping with the new learning modality as they continued their studies.
A year in the pandemic and a new school year, students still have their worries about their education and weighing whether to enroll. One factor that affects students’ decision to continue is the learning modality schools offered.
Thus, the National Teachers College offered two learning modalities for College: Online and Correspondence, that even with limited internet connectivity, students will have the best education. Graduate School offers flexible online learning, and Basic Education (Elementary, Junior, and Senior High School) have modified distance learning with the synchronous and asynchronous approach.
The National Teachers College’s Modified Distance Learning for Basic Education combines the online learning materials and opportunities with traditional-based classroom approaches for online interaction. This approach encourages personalization and in-person teaching with technological-based methods. Therefore, students can experience support and guidance anytime and anywhere as they learn.
The Online Learning of NTC provides digital content and synchronous interaction with instructors through Google Workspace and LinkedIn Learning. With this, online classes become more accessible to students without downloading too many applications and save more internet data.
NTC’s online learning also ensures the efficiency and effectiveness of the lessons’ delivery with multimedia tools to keep students engaged. Apart from that, it extends the lessons beyond the traditional textbooks. Thus, the online learning system of NTC helps students and teachers to be efficient and effective.
According to Patrick Lian Esplana, a BSBA student in Online Learning, “NTC’s offering of Online Learning touched the very vital problem at the height of the pandemic; to transmit and continue academic learning in the comforts of student’s homes. NTC’s Online Learning also continued the concrete interaction of the professors and students in explaining and elaborating the courses. It also teaches students to practice responsible time to finish their requirements and attend synchronous classes. Apart from that, there is an online library that students can access for their readings and research.”
While the Correspondence learning modality of NTC provides students with a module for self-directed learning via email, students can study at their own pace and time. The correspondence gives students comfort and peace of mind since they can download their module and access it any time and anywhere without worries about internet connectivity.
Although the correspondence is purely offline, students can still communicate with their teachers to ask questions and clarify some lessons they do not comprehend. Despite its self – directedness, NTC provides support to students to continuously learn and gain learnings.
“The advantage of Correspondence learning is you do not have to attend the synchronous classes. Our teachers are also considerate about the due dates since we do not have an online session to communicate. It helps us comprehend our lessons,” said Paul Cruz, BSBA student in Correspondence Learning.
Moreover, behind NTC’s remote learning are experts who ensure that students will get the best of their education even in the comforts of their homes. They guarantee that the distance learning delivery is effective, and with the new normal in education, NTC still upholds its student-focused mission to help them realize their inspirations.
NTC, a premier institution under a Yuchengco-Ayala educational partnership, ensures that Filipinos will have access to quality education at a reasonable cost.
NTC Partnered with experts in remote learning to ensure the effective delivery of its remote learning. These include: Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)-JWEL who works with member organizations to promote excellence and transformation in education to address global opportunities for scalable change in education; Mapua University, one of the pioneers in distance learning, has been continuously improving learning connectivity online even before ECQ; Derrick Latrielle ran learning and development operations for blue-chip technology, telecommunications, and BPO companies operating around the world, especially in South America and Southeast Asia; and, Dr. Edizon Fermin is a member of CHED’s Technical Working Group on Remote Learning.
NTC’s learning continuity plan is clear: stay safe at home and learn meaningfully with assistance from our responsive remote staff, either through calls, texts, social media messages, or emails. The world may have changed drastically, but NTC’s commitment to providing accessible and quality education remains steadfast.
