The shift to online learning has influenced a significant trend among enrollees, says Dr. Amable Aguiluz IX, vice chairman and CEO of AMA Education System (AMAES).
In a statement, Aguiluz noted an uptick in professionals enrolling in short courses and post-graduate programs. He said, “Reasons for enrollment mainly centered on taking advantage of our full online education offerings. Those who have been putting off continuing their studies now have a convenient method available to them.”
While in the past they have been dissuaded by barriers such as distance and time, these enrollees now have the unique opportunity to step a bit further with short courses and post-graduate programs online.
OEd, the country’s first institution to offer full online degree programs and a member of AMAES, has been this kind of platform even before the pandemic. Last year, OEd recorded a total of 162 graduates, including candidates for Bachelor’s and Master Programs hailing from 18 countries, that have benefited from its services.
At OEd, a variety of short courses in the fields of communication, finance, arts and information technology are available. Those interested must register at www.oed.com.ph. PLS @tribunephl_pau
