Globe and TM subscribers can now access the learning resources app of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) for free, without incurring any data charges.
The CHED announced that it partnered with telco giant Globe to make the PHL CHED Connect app more accessible to students and faculty members.
“CHED lauds this initiative by Globe so that more students and teachers can access educational materials online for free anytime and anywhere,” CHED Chairman Prospero De Vera III said.
Globe meanwhile said it hopes to “empower” the educational community with the initiative.
“By supporting CHED through free connectivity, we hope to empower our educational community and give them an opportunity to continue increasing their knowledge and honing their skills whenever and wherever they want to,” said Yoly Crisanto, Globe senior vice president for corporate communications.
De Vera added: “As we all find ways to cope up with this global health crisis, the bayanihan spirit shown by Globe proves that we can all together thrive throughout this pandemic if all learn and educate as one.”
PHL CHED Connect was launched last June and serves as a tertiary level counterpart to DepEd Commons—the online repository of learning materials of the Department of Education.
“Last June 23, we launched PHL CHED CONNECT, a landmark initiative made possible with the support of our international and local education and institutional partners who donated or loaned their online resources,” De Vera said.
The platform is accessible through phlconnect.ched.gov.ph wherein students can have 24/7 access to educational materials using various devices.
