6 Educational Innovations That Filipino Students Deserve in 2023
Mar 31, 2022
Even before the pandemic, the educational model in the Philippines has lacked the necessary innovation and technology to address the needs of Filipino students. Educational set-ups were too cumbersome, for example, because of the limited availability of class slots and schedules; other universities and colleges were too expensive; and schools don’t really give you a choice on how you want to study.
The pandemic heightened this lack in the Philippines’ educational model and students have been compromising because the traditional model is the only mode of education accessible and available to them.
Now, Filipino students have better study opportunities and choices they can decide on based on their educational needs and wants, such as affordability, real-world preparedness, proximity to their homes, among others.
Mapúa Malayan Digital College (MMDC), the first-ever digital college under Malayan Colleges of Laguna, A Mapua School, is one of the schools who embraced technology and innovation in bringing education to students; for those who want real world experiences while studying and be more prepared for the workplace. They’re an all-digital school bringing quality education in the fields of business and information technology, at an affordable price.
Let’s take a look at some educational innovations in Mapua Malayan Digital College that you (and every Filipino student) deserve in 2023 and beyond:
1. Digital-first model
What’s unique with what MMDC offers to their learners is the privilege to learn from wherever and however they want. For senior high students, this digital-first model of learning can free you from the hassle of commuting to school everyday and having to wear uniforms or dress according to the dress code; you may now have more time for your hobbies and social life! Class meetings are approximately 7.5 hours a week of synchronous learning. This is also perfect if you’re a part-time student who has to keep up with hectic work schedules and your personal life, since MMDC allows you to take classes before or after work.
2. Courses for employability
MMDC focuses on areas that are in-demand by both students and industry: technology and business. You can explore sought-after specializations in Information Technology like Data Analytics, Software Development, and Network and Cybersecurity.
If you’re looking to specialize in Business Administration, you have plenty of majors to choose from such as Marketing Management, Operations Management, and Human Resource Management.
These degrees are designed by instructional design professionals who have experience in academe as well as the workforce to make your transition from school to workplace more efficient, and you more equipped for the world. The Business Administration degree is offered by MMDC through CHED’s memorandum on the implementation of flexible learning.
3. Redefined socialization opportunities at convenient locations
If you’ve been in a classroom before, you know how hard it is to collaborate and socialize sometimes because of distractions. At MMDC, you can take your collaboration and socialization to new levels through extracurricular activities in unique and well-designed locations specifically made for MMDC students. Gone are the days of scream-talking to your bestie inside a chaotic classroom. MMDC offers learning hubs located in Ayala Malls Cloverleaf in Quezon City and Capitol Central in Bacolod where you can study and hang out with your classmates at the same time!
4. Tech-driven tools and system
Sitting in an online lecture with mediocre WiFi can be frustrating and some students only use their phones to study. It discourages you from learning and takes the joy out of it. Enjoy on-the-go learning at MMDC where you can get your own pocket wifi as part of your tuition. You can also get a laptop and pay for it in installments so you can learn and succeed in daily work.

MMDC not only prioritizes the digitization of education, their entire admin system is also designed so that students can easily and directly report their concerns or ask for support from an Integrated Advisor. Bye-bye, long lines at the admissions counter!
5. No traditional tests, only real-world experiences
The traditional educational set-up would have you chipping away a semester to earn your OJT certification, and that’s stressful because it means you’d have to balance your OJT and your course load for the semester. At MMDC, you learn as you go. Students learn through Projects, Projects and Cases (PPC) learning model, which emphasizes real-world applications and evaluates students on their output, and not on traditional testing methods. This model helps students develop not just technical skills but also soft skills such as critical thinking, leadership, creativity, analysis, and collaboration – skills that are important to succeed in the workplace.
On top of that, MMDC provides industry certifications so you’ll gain a competitive edge over other graduates in your field and in-class placement guidance before and after graduation to make the transition from school to work more manageable for you! Here’s to your dream career!
6. Worry-free fees
MMDC carries the Mapúan academic heritage—at an affordable price starting at P19,000 per term (considering a full load of 15 units per term) with the MMDC Asenso Scholarship. Payment scheme options are also available for those who might need them so you don’t have to worry about shelling out a huge amount of cash at one time. Parents and working students will surely feel a weight lifted off their shoulders!
The Scholarship is available to the first 500 enrollees. Hurry, because slots are running out! Click here to apply and reserve your slot.
As the world moves forward and technology improves, so too does our educational system. If we keep sticking to what’s traditionally been done, we’d never know if there are better systems or ways to learn and we’d never address the concerns of students who no longer fit with the current traditional educational set-up. So, if you’ve been feeling unsatisfied with the quality of education you’ve been experiencing because of some few (and valid) concerns, you may want to look into what Mapua Malayan Digital College offers. As they say, you dasurv it!
