DLSU-D opens Academy of Continuing Education
Rosalinda L. Orosa (The Philippine Star) - July 4, 2013 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - There are a number of former De La Salle University-Dasmarinas (DLSU-D) students who were just a few units from earning their undergraduate degree but, for some reason, had to put studying on hold. It could be because of a work opportunity in show business, call center, or abroad; or a student’s family had to immediately move to another country. Whatever the reason, going back to school full-time is just not an option for these students.

In its bid to promote innovative use of technology to reach out to these students, the University opened its Academy of Continuing Education (ACE). ACE is an avenue to give former students who have not completed their degrees an opportunity to pick up where they left off in their studies, this time with the use of an online platform that is both accessible and convenient, no matter where they are in the world. ACE offers online courses for various programs to former students who may enroll as long as the student has only 15 units or fewer left until the completion of the degree.

The online courses will utilize modules designed by faculty experts in their respective fields. The students of the online courses will interact with their facilitators using DLSU-D Schoolbook, the University’s virtual learning environment tool. Online classes started in June 2013. For further details and inquiries, e-mail the university registrar, Marialita Esberto, at mlesberto@dlsud.edu.ph or call +632-8447831 and +6346-4811900 locals 3025 and 3027.

In the near future, DLSU-D ACE will start offering certificate courses for professionals seeking professional advancement or continuing education and programs for lifelong learners. ACE will offer a wide range of options such as language proficiency certifications (IELTS, TOEFL, etc.), online review for government and professional certification examinations, early childhood education for parents and caregivers, travel photography, and basic website creation and development, among others.
