As the education system shifts to blended learning, Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto understands the importance of having a stable internet connection. To aid the learners and teachers in their online classes, the local government of Pasig City has built a distance learning center that is equipped with fast WiFi connection. Here, students can download their learning materials, submit their requirements online. Teachers can also easily upload their modules conveniently.

Mayor Vico shared photos of their ongoing project.

He wrote, “Sa distance learning modules ng DepEd, di kailangan ng mag-aaral ng internet connection sa bahay. Pero kailangan pa rin ng centers kung saan maaaring mag-download ang mga magulang kung walang access sa bahay.”

Mayor Vico said use of the distance learning center will be as per schedule basis to avoid overcrowding. “Huwag mag-alala, kada 2 weeks lang at naka schedule para di sabay-sabay. Magagamit din ng mga guro ang high-speed internet para i-upload ang mga modules,” he added.

Mayor Vico also said that the project was in cooperation with a private company, FinAsia.
