E-learning now in Baguio UC-BCF first to use north of Manila

January 14, 2007

Only four manila-based schools and two in Cebu are using the United States developed computer learning program. UC-BCF will be the first to adopt the latest computer learning technology north of Manila consistently sustaining CHED's recognition of UC as a Center of Development for Excellence in Information Technology Education Program.

The e-learning program at UC-BCF will be availed in two computer laboratories with 50 computer capacity each at the newly constructed nine storey building. Selected faculty and students have been doing experimental use of this since November last year. However, the launching of the E-learning systems will be scheduled later this month and expected to be in full operation by February.

Dean Nancy Flores of the UC College of Information and Computing Sciences explained that students will be assigned individual computers and accessories then learn by themselves by just following recorded instructions. Students will then be guided in a learning experience through a mixture of animation, simulated examples and recorded actual situations.

"Each computer is a virtual classroom. It's a mixture of seeing, listening and experiencing a learning process followed by computer-based exercises and actual examinations that provides immediate results through computerized checking and grading", Ms. Flores said.

"With all sense combined in the learning experience specially with recorded real life applications, there will be lasting retention of learning. Students can also set their learning pace with unlimited replays because they can not move on to the next pace unless they get a passing rate in the practice examinations. Although each student can access only his files through user name and passwords, a centralized tracking of performance by an assigned monitor will be done through a server.

In nursing for example, dean Flores explains that the course RLE (related learning experience) will be augmented by actual hospital situations recorded on video "as if the student is inside an operating room, a delivery room or emergency room". The E-learning experience will accordingly prepare nursing students before actual clinical duty. It will also augment learning of fielded students who failed to get full hospital experience due to the increasing number of nursing students from all schools but with limited hospitals and patients.

Other E-learning programs acquired by the school include English proficiency, sciences, mathematics, and foreign language among others.
