TO ENHANCE its ICT infrastructure and connectivity, the Philippine Normal University received a P25-million grant from the Commission on Higher Education.

The money will help transform PNU into a smart university through its 4.0: Teacher Education for the Future project.

PNU President Bert Tuga said that CHED’s support will strengthen the capacities of the PNU campuses to implement flexible learning delivery.

“This will enhance the learning experience of students as well as the management of learning across programs under the current modality,” he said.

“This will further create opportunities for both faculty members and students to innovate and harness their creativity in a flexible learning environment,” he added.

The university said that with a strengthened ICT infrastructure, faculty members and students in all campuses will be able to gain access to the PNU Learning Management System or ePNU.

“It will also equip all regional campuses with the facilities and resources to manage and fully utilize ePNU as the primary platform of the flexible learning modality currently adopted by the University,” it added.

To guarantee stable and reliable connection, a dedicated bandwidth connected to the server will be utilized. This will enable different devices to access the online services of the ePNU, it said.
