USTP Jasaan faculty with their new laptops for Flexible Learning
Twelve (12) full-time faculty members of the University of Science and Technology of Southern Philippines (USTP) in Jasaan, Misamis Oriental received their new laptops for the Flexible Learning Program.
This is part of the University’s initiative on equipping the faculty with their needs in the new normal learning. The assigned laptops will aid the faculty in transitioning from face-to-face classes to online and modular sessions.
Face-to-face classes have been suspended to stop the spread of the Corona virus. USTP Jasaan is the first campus to receive the laptops.
Unboxing and distribution of the new laptops for the faculty in USTP Jasaan.
Early this year, USTP has been distributing gadgets and mobile load to students for online learning.
USTP System President Dr. Ambrosio B. Cultura II, the Board of Regents, and the University administrators believe that education should continue and shall promote technology solutions and innovation to propel the University’s goal to produce knowledge-based graduates.
The laptop comes with a Windows 10 Processor and Intel Core i5 which is ideal for education settings.

“Thank you, USTP, for the gadget. With this, I will be more productive in my online teaching classes.”
