CIIT launches a new college program for students who want to pursue a degree in programming and business management.
The education system in the Philippines continues its efforts to adapt to the change caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Two years ago, schools across the country transitioned from traditional classroom setups to online synchronous and asynchronous classes. Because of this, students had to face the reality of educational transformation.
Now that the number of COVID-19 cases is more controlled since its breakout, there’s a possibility of going back to a face-to-face learning setting.
