KHub revolutionises learning among DOST-Philippine science high school students

A new version of educational technology for Learning Management Systems (LMS) has surfaced and it’s called KHub or Knowledge Hub that serves as a library of teaching and learning guides for teachers and students respectively.It also serves as a portal for all academic needs in the coming years.

Campus KHub is one of its features that enable teachers to meet with their students virtually where subjects and courses are only exclusive to individuals enrolled in it. Another one is the “badges” that rewards students for their aptitude to learning. “Badges” are synonymous to a computer gaming experience as it grants you to unlock levels as you study and answer along.

Logging in to KHub gives easy access to teachers in choosing their respective subject matter. Activities related to their lessons are also conveniently provided. They liken the user-friendly portal to a traditional classroom as they ease through submitting examinations and other records to students so they can access and answer them in a timely manner at home.

Retakes for examinations are inevitable and sometimes lead to exhaustion among teachers and students alike as the preparation can often be time-consuming; but with the existence of KHub, the said experience pledges to be hassle-free since it serves as a learning and teaching repository.

The Research and Policy Academic Division of DOST-PSHSS develops guides in conducting webinars that enhance competence in accessing the portal as it continues to expand the frontier in learning. Institutions are encouraged to undertake these in innovative ways to encourage a culture of learning. The ultimate aim is to drive progress amid the current situation where teachers, staff and students are confined to their homes. This has driven DOST-PSHSS to design and roll out a system that does just that.

Naysayers may conclude that it is identical to other existing online learning platforms like Edmodo, Gooru, Nearpod and the like that are also recommended by the Department of Education (DepEd) in terms of a medium for teachers affiliated outside of the DOST-PSHSS to conduct distance learning. This is partially true; however, it has proven to be unique in its own way as it is tailor-fitted to the needs of a specific demographic that it caters to.

A non-graded bridging program has also been developed for Philippine Science scholars to guarantee the effectiveness of distance learning with the sole purpose of filling the gap of learning materials removed from the curriculum due to the suspension of classes during the fourth semester of the previous year.

DOST has gone a step further in fulfilling its mission of creating a better and brighter society through its adaptability to advancements – introducing a vision of tomorrow that is receptive to the demands of the global market. They are devoted to shaping and reshaping the future generation of individuals who will enter the workforce in no time that is committed to contributing skills and knowledge in a highly competitive world.

As the country transitions to the new normal in the education sector, government-owned, controlled television broadcasting entities, the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) and the Department of Education (DepEd) work together in producing projects to help amplify basic educational content through digitised media.

The National Telecommunications Commissions (NTC) ensures that services to be rendered to the education sector gains access to broadcast, connectivity and digital security from school year 2020 to 2021 as part of its commitment.

The DICT directs NTC to provide information, technical support and assistance necessary to implement Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte’s directive to provision of uninterrupted quality education.

A formal request to broadcast stations, channels, and cable television providers was sent by the DICT directly to NTC in the plea to allow broadcasting hours to DepEd learning and instructional materials without any charges as part of the Basic Learning Continuity Plan (BE-LCP) of the current administration.

In response, the NTC released a memorandum directing Radio and TV broadcast networks and operators to assist DepEd in ensuring continuity of providing quality education in the middle of the health crisis.

The NTC also stated that broadcast operators have the responsibility to provide free public service time to be utilised by the government in getting important public issues across, especially matters that encompass issues and instances of calamities, warnings and other matters that fall under the educational purview.

A provision of the authorisation granted by the commission also requires radio and TV broadcast networks and operators to provide the national government free and uninterrupted access to their facilities for a minimum of thirty (30) hours per month.

Additionally, various entertainment industry guilds, organisations, associations, the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP), the National Live Events Coalition of the Philippines (NCLEP), the Creative Economy Council of the Philippines (CECP), the National Commission for Culture and the Arts of the Philippines (NCCAP), the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP), the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IPOPHL), and the public and private sector institutions were tapped by the Undersecretary for Government Digital Broadcast Television and the Digitisation of the Entertainment Industry Sector, Ramon P. Jacinto, to consolidate in the move to push through digital.
