A UNITED States-based education and technology firm lauded the Mapua University for having the highest digital course activation in Asia.

In a letter sent to University President Dr. Reynaldo Vea, tech firm Cengage commended the successful digital transition of the university.

“Your foresight and determination to pursue digital learning from the early days, allowed Cengage to work successfully with your faculty to provide enriching and engaging learning experiences to your students through our digital courseware,” Cengage said.

Mapua said that from 1,943 in 2019, 2,267 digital courses, spanning across 164 subjects, were created in 2020. It added that these courses generated 58,706 enrollments.

“These numbers are the highest for a single university in comparison to Cengage’s records for universities in the Philippines and in Asia, making Mapua among the most digital-ready universities in the region,” the school said.

“The resources developed by the institution with Cengage have benefited both faculties and students of the University, ranging from an array of online course resources, interactive tools, to student analytics that helped enhance both teaching and learning in Mapua,” it added.
