PLM students to get printed modules
The Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila conducted a "dry run" for the simulation of their virtual classrooms which will be used in carrying out the Academic Year 2020-2021. Classes in PLM will officially start on October 5, and three weeks before they open final preparations are now in "full blast".
President Leyco was also quite pleased with how their simulation went last Monday, September 14. He said that the simulation gave them the "confidence" that they can "pull off" blended learning modes.
"This provides us the confidence that we can pull of bleanded learning modes come October 5. We hope that this experience will also help students to adjust to our 'new normal' in education and are better prepared once the formal classes start," President Leyco said.
During the simulation, PLM was able to address different incidents that occured. There were some students who had slow internet connectivity, while some students and teachers temporarily lost their connection. Other concerns were about the students having a hard time entering into the Microsoft Teams, the chosen platform of PLM.
The Information and Communications Technology Office of PLM is also completing the sending of Outlook emails and class schedules for their new and returing students three weeks prior to the opening of classes.
Since internet connectivity is a huge issue for "virtual classes", PLM has prepared printed modules for their students who indicated that they did not have access to internet or computer gadgets. The materials will then be distributed through the Manila Barangay Bureau for students residing in the City of Manila.
Students who still do not have access to their official PLM Outlook accounts may reach out to email@example.com for assistance. Comments and suggestions that will contribute to the improvement of the online learning experience can be sent to pantas_tugo.
