Globe, in collaboration with the Department of Education (DepEd), launches Globe eLibrary for Grade 11 and Grade 12 students, teachers, and parents nationwide. The initiative promotes e-learning amid the school suspension brought by the enhanced community quarantine.
The Globe eLibrary provides quick access to hundreds of ebooks, videos, and other digital resources certified by DepEd. It can be accessed through mobile phones, tablets, laptops, and desktop computers, as well as through DepEd Commons, the government agency’s pilot program on learning continuity. Students may download the learning materials straight on their devices and may share it with other people.
The selection of ebooks includes children and young adult novels, as well as Math, Science, English, Filipino, Music, Arts textbooks. Foreign ebooks were curated by various sources that allow free public use and sharing, such as Gutenberg.org and Storyweaver.org.in, while DepEd’s Bureau of Learning Resources provided local titles. The catalog is expected to grow in the coming months after the contribution of Globe’s content partners.
Meanwhile, the eLearning videos are produced by teachers and discuss core subjects like English, Math, and Science under Text2Teach, a 10-year program launched by the Ayala Foundation, Globe, DepEd, and various organizations in 2003 to supply public schools with high-quality digital content and teacher training on using technology for learning.
