Making a difference:
TELECOM giant Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT), through its business unit PLDT SME Nation, together with global IT giant Microsoft Philippines, on Wednesday launched a new service package called the Digital Campus Suite that will enable students and academes access to online learning programs and to earn IT (Information Technology) certifications for critical IT skills that are now in demand in today’s digitally- driven industries.
“We at PLDT are confident that this partnership can significantly contribute to enriching the digital content of Philippine education. By enabling schools through these programs, we are helping them, both educator and student, to gain new critical skills and learn IT courses with globally competitive technology programs that have become essential in today’s digital work place,” PLDT Chairman Manny V. Pangilinan said.
Through the Digital Campus Suite, schools will have high-speed connectivity to PLDT myDSL Biz or iGate, and online access to training courses of the Microsoft IT Academy Program.
Educators and students will have access to Microsoft’s digital curriculum and earn IT certifications in the Microsoft IT Academy Program for fundamental technology skills as well as courses that enable students to become more competitive for employment.
Schools will also receive licenses to Microsoft Office 365 to help students and teachers interact and teach using cloud tools and platforms.
The suite also includes laptops, tablets and WiFi access points in the campus for use of students for their overall digital education experience.
A study conducted by International Data Corporation has revealed that increased spending on IT cloud services will open up an estimated 14 million new jobs worldwide.
