The Emerging Interdisciplinary Research – Development of a Filipinized Learning Management System strengthens collaboration with Visayas State University

The UP System’s EIDR Program titled, Development of a Filipinized Learning Management System, conducted a field visit to one of its implementors, Visayas State University – College of Nursing as part of the implementation and monitoring of the project last April 11, 2023.

Together with the EIDR Filipinized LMS Team, Assistant Professor Rita C. Ramos met with the VSU’s College of Nursing Dean, Dr. Michelle Tolibas, and other faculty members. The team conducted a short program among the VSU nursing students and faculty wherein a brief tutorial and an open forum discussion were held regarding their experiences using the Filipinized LMS. The team quickly addressed queries from the students, which gave them confidence in using the system. After the program, specific students who wanted to clarify additional concerns were also given a consultation session. 

The Filipinized Learning Management System aims to help nursing students and faculty have an accessible online learning environment despite the slow internet connection in the country. Currently, the project is being implemented in 3 state universities in the country – MSU Buug, Cavite State University, and Visayas State University, respectively. The project hopes to expand its partnerships with other academic fields and institutions.
