PLDT and Microsoft aim to boost PH IT education by launching Digital Campus Suite, a new service package that will enable students and academe access online learning programs and to earn IT (information technology) certifications for critical IT skills that are now in-demand in today’s digitally driven industries.
This initiative is under PLDT’s business unit PLDT SME Nation that has been very active in partnering with schools and learning institutions to build their technology and connectivity resources in support of the education sector’s need to improve ICT learning among the students and academe.
“We at PLDT are confident that this partnership can significantly contribute to enriching the digital content of Philippine education. By enabling schools through these programs, we are helping them, both educator and student, to gain new critical skills and learn IT courses with globally competitive technology programs that have become essential in today’s digital work place,” said PLDT Chairman Manuel V. Pangilinan.
Through the Digital Campus Suite, schools will have high-speed connectivity with PLDT myDSL Biz or iGate, and online access to training courses of the Microsoft IT Academy Program.
Educators and students will have access to Microsoft’s digital curriculum and earn IT certifications in the Microsoft IT Academy Program for fundamental technology skills as well as courses that enable students to become more competitive for employment.
The launch was held in Makati Shangri-La Hotel and presented by Mon Isberto, Public Affairs Group Head PLDT/Smart Communications, joined by program hostess, Issa Litton.
Since it was a campus-related event, audience were given the opportunity to see the UP PEP Squad and NU PEP Squad perform together their cheerleading performance in one stage. A first for both UP and NU PEP Squad.
