iACADEMY partnered with DigiPlus, a renowned retail gaming provider, in a bid to reshape the educational landscape.

The two industry leaders signed an agreement on September 12, 2023, under which DigiPlus will extend its expertise and knowledge as it participates in the establishment of a state-of-the-art game development lab, amplifying opportunities for iACADEMY students to bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and hands-on application.

The partnership will facilitate hands-on projects, workshops, and mentorship opportunities, where DigiPlus experts will work closely with iACADEMY students. This interaction will not only hone students’ skills but also provide them with invaluable insights into industry best practices.

“The participation by DigiPlus in the game development lab is a testament of our dedication to education, innovation, and harnessing the limitless potential of the Filipino youth. Together, iACADEMY and DigiPlus are poised to ignite a new era in education, where students are not just scholars, but pioneers and creators of a brighter, more dynamic future,” said Tommy Hu, DigiPlus COO.

The game development lab will serve as a dynamic space where students can bring their imaginative concepts to life, working on live projects and gaining invaluable practical experience. This hands-on approach is poised to equip students with skills that extend far beyond textbooks, preparing them for the dynamic demands of the modern professional landscape.

The game development lab will be meticulously tailored to meet the evolving and growing needs of industries that drive economic progress. With access to cutting-edge technologies, workshops, and mentorship from industry experts, students will be poised to excel in fields such as programming, app development, and design.

“As iACADEMY and DigiPlus join forces, we embark on a shared journey to redefine the boundaries of education. This partnership embodies their unwavering belief in the power of experiential learning, where students are not just taught, but actively engaged in shaping the future,” said iACADEMY President and CEO Vanessa Tanco.
