    PLDT Enterprise, a strong supporter and advocate of leveraging technology for the education sector, further enables e-Learning for all the students of STI across the country.

    Given the community quarantine measures in the past months, STI faced major challenges in planning the continuous growth and learning for their students. To address these, the educational institution launched its ONE STI Learning Model which will combine digital tools and online technology with hands-on training and on-campus activities.

    To aid STI’s new learning model, the educational institution partnered with PLDT Enterprise to provide its students with the necessary connectivity to enable e-Learning. With the tie-up, more than 80,000 students of STI across the country will benefit from Smart GIGA Study data plan to ensure their connectivity.

    The concept of online learning is not new to STI, as the institution already implemented a blended learning mode for the past six years using an eLearning Management System (eLMS) for students to continue their studies at home uninterrupted despite the physical classroom disruptions.

    The plan gives STI students access to its pre-defined school apps—from eLMS, Microsoft Office 365, ONE STI Student Portal, and to other collaborative online learning tools — allowing them to safely study whenever and wherever they are while remaining connected.

    “We at PLDT Enterprise aims to support the needs of our modern-day learners so they never stop dreaming amid the current situation. And with this partnership, we fully support STI as they enable their students with connectivity and technologies to continue their education,” said Jovy Hernandez, ePLDT President & CEO and SVP & Head for PLDT and Smart Enterprise Business Groups.

    STI’s new learning model strengthens its existing blended learning mode which combines independent online learning via eLMS at home with the invaluable hands-on training in industry-grade laboratories and classroom discussions at  STI campuses nationwide.

    “STI has always been committed to providing real-life education through the development and delivery of superior learning systems, and this partnership with PLDT Enterprise strengthens this mission further especially during this critical time,” said Aisa Hipolito, VP for Academics of STI.

    In the advent of online education, PLDT Enterprise aims to redefine the future of learning for Filipino students so they never stop dreaming through its continuous engagements with universities, colleges, schools, and learning institutions across the country.
