On May 22, 2023, the UP System’s EIDR Program titled, Development of a Filipinized Learning Management System, conducted its last field visit activity at Cavite State University – College of Nursing as part of the implementation and monitoring of the project. 

In a significant stride towards innovation in education, the Emerging Interdisciplinary Research (EIDR) – Filipinized Learning Management System Team, led by Assistant Professor Rita C. Ramos and Assistant Professor Queenie Ridulme, recently engaged in a productive meeting with Cavite State University’s esteemed President, Hernando D. Robles, accompanied by College of Nursing Dean Evelyn M. Del Mundo and faculty members, as well as ILCLO Director Ma. Veronica P. Peñaflorida. This gathering served as a platform for strengthening the collaboration between the two institutions, marked by a ceremonial signing of the Memorandum of Agreement.

Following the formalities, a brief program was organized by the EIDR Team, inviting the College of Nursing faculty members and student representatives to delve deeper into the project. The program served as a venue for comprehensive discussions, enabling attendees to gain a deeper understanding of the benefits and features of the Filipinized LMS. An exciting highlight of the program was the launch of the Filipinized LMS Mobile Application, which captivated the users with its user-friendly interface and enhanced functionality. The partnership is poised to propel the Filipinized LMS to new heights, paving the way for a more dynamic and interactive educational journey at Cavite State University and beyond.

The Filipinized Learning Management System aims to help both nursing students and faculty to 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.
