THE Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities (PACU) has partnered with PLDT Enterprise to support its 196 members’ transition to e-Learning.
With this collaboration, PLDT Enterprise will be providing PACU’s member schools with Smart Giga Study plans and curated services for e-Learning that can be customized for each learning institution and updated to keep pace with schools’ evolving needs.
Giga Study plans are especially developed prepaid packages that cater exclusively to the academe, which includes daily data allocations for online learning tools essential to today’s new normal of learning.
“We are strong in our resolve to help enable schools provide high quality education even during this time. We want to redefine the future of learning by providing the necessary digital tools and solutions that will address both the needs of the teachers and the students,” ePLDT President & CEO and SVP & Head for PLDT and Smart Enterprise Business Groups Jovy Hernandez said.
“We’re all going through an incredible change in our education processes these days. Our partnership with PLDT Enterprise will make the adjustment as painless as possible. We consider this partnership a smart investment in the future of education that can help us weather any future disruptions,” PACU President Dr. Carol Enriquez said.

This virtual webinar addresses challenges in online learning and discuss how Philippine education can remain resilient.
